We’re all living in dreams of people from the past.
A golden era of grey and black
where people walk fast and never look back.

But who wears the trousers in these houses?
Who secretly skirts - tries on blouses?
Feels things for who they are - not what they’re not?

Everyone seems to like me except you.
Outrageous nepotism has always seen me through.
Weakness is strength and strength a weakness too
and everyone seems to like me except you.

Soon it will be time for bells to chime.
For birds to sing and truth to ring out.
Then we’ll know what this is all about.

Everyone seems to like you except me.
I’m trying to figure out what they can see.
Spending so much time in close proximity
and everyone seems to like you except me.

You were an interest I didn’t know I had.
Love is a two-way ticket to happy and sad.
Lip balm junkies never kiss too bad
and we’re both ruthless cowards - neither common or garden.
Just luxury high-end or food bank bargains.

It’s hard not to be a hypocrite knowing
what you should have done and what you did.
It’s hard to hold onto integrity
when you’re holding things that you should just let be.
It’s easier said than done - being blind instead of seeing.

Everyone seems to like you except me.
Lulled into false senses of insecurity.
Unhinged, all reddy-tinged we turn the screw
and everyone seems to like me except you.
