lyrics

Green to this.
Where's a manual when you need one?
The back of your hand, no good to you now.
Right angles,
It's all shaped wrong when it should be rolling.
You're pining every trick this box hasn't got.

It's alright...
didn't I tell you so?

I don't know why I felt the need to keep it up for oh so long
It's all my fault I'm sorry you did absolutely nothing wrong
I don't know why I felt the need to drag it out for all these years
All the pain I've caused you, the constant flow of all the tears
Believe me when I say that I cannot apologise enough
When all you ever wanted from me was a token of my love
And if it's not too late, could you please find it deep within your heart
To try and go back, go back to the start
Go back to the start

My favourite thing,
to walk out on the bridge and look back on Manhattan,
under sunset covers while the city lights up.
You'll find yours,
whoever, whatever, you need, it'll be here.
Guarenteed under these golden old streets.

It's alright...
'Cause I'm telling you so.

I don't know why I felt the need to keep it up for oh so long
It's all my fault I'm sorry you did absolutely nothing wrong
I don't know why I felt the need to drag it out for all these years
All the pain I've caused you, the constant flow of all the tears
Believe me when I say that I cannot apologise enough
When all you ever wanted from me was a token of my love
And if it's not too late, could you please find it deep within your heart
To try and go back, go back to the start
Go back to the start

It's alright.
It's all in the process.
It's alright.
You're all set to go.
So don't give me that look...
'cause I know you're up to it.

Just one place.
Just one place,
to make amend.
Just

I don't know why I felt the need to keep it up for oh so long
It's all my fault I'm sorry you did absolutely nothing wrong
I don't know why I felt the need to drag it out for all these years
All the pain I've caused you, the constant flow of all the tears
Believe me when I say that I cannot apologise enough
When all you ever wanted from me was a token of my love
And if it's not too late, could you please find it deep within your heart
To try and go back, go back to the start
Go back to the start

That's all it takes.
