Once Around the Block

This song is by Badly Drawn Boy and appears on the album The Hour of Bewilderbeast (2000).

You quiver like a candle on fire
I'm putting you out
Maybe tonight we could be the last shout
And I'm fascinated by your style
Your beauty will last for a while

You're feeling instead of being
The more that I live on the inside there's nothing to give
I'm infatuated by your moves
I've gotta search hard for your clues

I want to repair your desire
And call it a gift
That I stole from just wanting to live
Now I see the vision through your eyes
Your innocence no longer fuels surprise

Trying to outrun your fear
You're running to lose
Heart on your sleeve and your soul in your shoes
Take a left
A sharp left and another left
Meet me on the corner, we'll start again
