​Man On The Verge

This song is by Lloyd Cole and appears on the album The Negatives (2000).

Independent reader I
Looking for a better quality of life
Seeking to depart from lonely hearted page

Sensitive to greying hair
Looking for a w/sense of humour
Do you have a script
Perchance, I could rewrite?

Man on the verge
Of the nerve
For "Hello, I love your shirt"
Could it hurt?
Man on the verge

9/11 subway train
You had yellow hair and mine is grey
You half smiled
Got off at Astor Place

Man on the verge
Of the words
To "Hello, I love your shirt"
Could it hurt?
Man on the verge

Waiting for the kiss of life
Seemingly lost without a TV Guide
Boyish 37
Sorely uninspired

Single melancholy male
Owning up to loneliness is no big deal
Everything is gone tomorrow miss you much

Man on the verge
Of the nerve
For "Hello, I love your shirt"
Could it hurt?
Man on the verge

Man on the verge
Mouthing the words
And the air between them
Could it hurt?
Man on the verge
