​A Collier's Wife

This song is by The Crookes and appears on the EP Dreams of Another Day (2010).

When you left, you left me reeling
But I'll try to forget this feeling
I thought you were as happy as a dicky-bird
Oh but for my love of another bird
Oh, now I'm stuck waiting
A collier's wife will not stop scrating
I hope you know that if I only could
I'd sing you songs like a lover should
If I took you by the hand
It was 'cause you could hardly stand
And I could hardly stand still
I know there are things you'd like to do
And I like wasting time with you
But I'm still in it for the thrill
So lads, you know the drill

You took off and left me reeling
I still don't care for this feeling
You sing in my ear like a mockingbird
But I'd be happy with any other bird
Oh, we wasted time like???
Times well spent lost in the gutter
The stars we see don't mean a single thing
Oh, how we band of brothers sing
If I took you by the hand
It was 'cause you could hardly stand
And I could hardly stand still
I know there are thing you'd like to do
And I like wasting time with you
But I'm still in it for the thrill
So lads, you know the dril
