Secret Distance

from by Cutaways



Safe and sound within these sounds there's nothing to fear today

With a DVD and a magazine and a glass full of lemonade

I see her words turn in defeat as they bounce up off my chest

Too many times i've let them win so i'm giving them a rest

If you weren't so loud and you weren't so proud

Maybe you'd be on top of my list

But you've such bad timing so please untie me

And let me amount to something

You did insist upon the secret distance

That has stopped us combining our fates

And it might just be too late

Upon my word i kid you not I'm taking action today

I'm stuck inside a serenade that's not making any sense


I was searching for a metaphor but i could only think of one

Our love at best was like a solar quest without space suits on

At first the lack of gravity had made it seem like fun

But when you're lacking atmosphere you can never feel at home
