lyrics

I hadn’t seen you in a while
and we were reminiscing
about the way things used to be
and what we used to say
you were used to me.
murder mystery in the background
we were feeling pretty ropey
but it was good to be with you
and do the things we do
not on a Sunday

and it had never happened before
small miracle believe me
I wasn’t digging for a nerve to strike
I never thought I’d find an opening

but I had to put it bluntly

I never see it in the subtext
just take it as it happens
ride a wave of small talk with me
just pleasantry and triviality
you couldn’t look me in the eyes
and you turned your body away
it was plain to see
you were upset with me
I made you angry

and it had never happened before
small miracle believe me
I wasn’t digging for a nerve to strike
I never thought I’d find an opening

I haven’t seen you in a while
and I’ve been reminiscing
about the way things used to be
and what you used to say
when you were used to me
now there’s tension in the background
I’ve been feeling pretty ropey
it would be good to be with you
and do the things we do every Sunday

and it’ll never happen again
I’ll make a miracle, believe me
I’ll never dig for a nerve to strike
I’ll never try to find an opening

I’ll never put it bluntly
