​Tell Me Ten Words

This song is by Idlewild and appears on the album The Remote Part (2002).

I have to stop
Sing to be honest
It's not a real defeat

To have to stop
Sing to be honest
It's not a great defeat
No no no
Not such a great defeat

All these things that you don't know
It seems so much better that way
All these things that you don't know
It seems so much better that way

Can you tell me ten words
That you'd use
To describe the world
You tell me ten words
That you use
To describe the world
To people
Tho people never seem to know
To people
Tho people never know

The more I say
The more I keep confusing things
That make me feel complete
So I keep lying to be honest
And it's not a real defeat
No no no
Not such a real defeat

All these things that you don't know
It seems so much better that way
All these things that you don't know
It seems so much better that way

Can you tell me ten words
That you'd use
To describe the world
You tell me ten words
That you'd use
To describe the world
To people
Tho people never seem to know
To people
Tho people never know

It's what you thought you are
It's what you thought you are
It's what you thought you are
It's what you thought you are
It's what you thought you are
(What you never thought you were)
It's what you never thought you could be if you tried much harder
(What you never thought you could be if you tried much harder)

All these things that you don't know
It seems so much better that way
All these things that you don't know
It seems so much better that way
All these things that you don't know
It seems so much better that way
All these things that you don't know
It seems so much better that way
