lyrics

This kind of midnight anxiety
Is all kinds of new to me
I didn't have much to lose before
I could drift off ignorant, unhappy

And though I'm good and settled now
This insomnia I could do without
'Cause lying awake and listening to you breathe
Is an exquisite kind of purgatory
'Cause I know, I know, I know
That you're dreaming of me

So here's one more Monday morning
Head full of ideas I can't touch
I've gotta switch on, gotta concentrate
It's why they're paying me this much

And though I'm good and settled now
This 9 - 5 I could do without
'Cause I'm lying to them through my teeth
About issues and dependencies
And I never once say my issue is that I can't sleep
Or I'm depending on one day taking on my dreams
'Cause I know, I know, I know
That it wouldn't change a thing

Oh when I first moved to London
I thought the streets would learn my name
But seven years have gone now
And they've been forgetting it more each day

And though I'm good and settled now
These new regrets I could do without
'Cause I'm lying looking up and I still can't see
The stars or any sign of immortality
And I've always wanted the same damn thing
I was 5 years old when I said hey dad, I wanna sing
But I spent my twenties sat behind a desk
'Cause I thought that was sensible
I thought that was for the best
And maybe I'm past it now
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
But I'm going to find out
