lyrics

I never bother to read the small print
so I just didn’t see the clause
but it seems that after years of lust and laughter,
far out thrills and near disasters,
chasing the dreams, never looking for a cause,
finally slamming on the breaks -
you hit the men pause.
You hit the men pause.

I keep catching myself crying,
laughing at myself
dying to tell you things that I don’t know.

You keep looking at me askew
like I’m someone that you once knew
a long, long time ago.

I’m stuck in limbo, you went to Tokyo,
I’ve got nowhere to go, you’re home where you are.
So independent while I’m in dependency,
I don’t even have the keys to your car.
I don’t know where they are – the keys to your car.

I never bother to read the small print
so I just didn’t see the claws!
But it seems that after years of lust and laughter,
far out thrills and near disasters,
chasing the dreams, never looking for a cause,
finally slamming on the breaks -
you hit the men pause.
You hit the men pause.

I don’t want another dark night of the soul,
another night digging a big hole
for all you think I’m worth.

To my friends and family,
I’m sorry about being me
but I’ve been like this since birth.

Where did all my mates go – there used to be so many.
Now my best pals are my books and the telly
and even my enemies are happy as Larry
and prove better company than me and my belly
just watching telly with Happy and Jolly.

I never bother to read the small print
so I just didn’t see the clause
but it seems that after years of lust and laughter,
far out thrills and near disasters,
chasing the dreams, never looking for a cause,
finally slamming on the breaks – realising your mistakes
you hit the men pause.
