What a way to fall apart
In front of everybody
I'm sick of waiting in the car
I've got the engine running
When you come crashing down the stairs
In all your subtle glory
And send the pigeons flying scared
Across the multistories

You pull your massive shades
Over your eyes
Cos six out of seven days
There's nowhere to hide

You curl your legs up on the seat
And wind the windows open
I turn the dial to get some heat
Although I know it's broken
And you make wider eyes at me
With every town we go through
Cos you can't wait to see the sea
And I can't wait to show you

Making our separate ways
Down to the coast
Strange how these better days
Stung me the most

And I've got your empty coat
Warm in my hands
Stood by the lines you wrote
Tall in the sand

You got it right
You got it right
You got it right

You got it right
You got it right
You got it right

You got it right
You got it right
You got it right
