Too Uptight

This song is by Graham Coxon and appears on the album Crow Sit on Blood Tree (2001).

Once there was a nothing, the voices rang so true
The knowledge that was lacking, cut innocence in two
Everything seemed too good to be right
When I was 16 I was too uptight

Now disappointment's shadow reveals a colder time
A harder kind of living in disillusion
How can it go the fear of the night
Now I am grown, I'm just too uptight

A slow and noble breakdown of personality
Careless, heartless, soulless, no dignity
My days are flown and I can't recall
Feeling so alone was I so uptight

Death creeps ever closer, a darkness falls in me
A scared fragmented loner unholy
A night with no end an echoing sea
I'll think about me, how I'm too uptight
