Everything But The Girl

25th December – Everything But The Girl

And I see forests and it’s the 25th of December
and my old man plays the piano for Christmas.
He plays the piano for Christmas.

And we’re all there, all the aunties and uncles,
and the angle’s on the top of the tree.
Up there o the top of the tree.

And I never, no I never ever realised.
And I never, no I never ever realised.

Have I enough time, have I just some time,
to revisit, to go back, to return, to open my mouth again
and say something different this time.

And I see bags of newspaper and a car in the carport,
and you’re a grown up and still unsure,
and I’m thirty and I don’t know nothing no more.

And I never, no I never ever realised.
And I never, no I never ever realised.

And I’m sitting, sitting on the top of the stairs,
and you’re crying out on the towpath by the river
with all the swans and all the people walking by.

And all of a sudden I’m stuck with an urge to unlock a door
with a key that’s too big for my hands
and I drop it, and it falls at your feet.

Come on, come on, it’s there at your feet.
And I never, no I never ever realised.
And I never, no I never ever realised.

Everything But The Girl – Each And Everyone

If you ever feel the time to drop me a loving line
maybe you should just think twice
I don’t wait around on your advice
You tell me I can go this far, but no more
Try to show me heaven and then slam the door
You offer shelter at a price much too dear
And your kind of love’s the kind that soon disappears

So don’t brag how you have changed
And everything’s been rearranged
I thought all that was over and done
But I still get the same from Each and Everyone
Being kind is just a way to keep me under your thumb
and I can cry because that’s something we’ve always done
you tell me I’m free of the past now and all those lies
then offer me the same thing in a different guise
