#1
she's everything you need
she turns up and the sun strokes kiss your knee
there's animosity
the kind that sparks up eyes that give in and concede
she's an illumination
on paper that dances on the flick
and the realisation
that she's playing is soon to make you sick

are those tired eyes?
(oh those tired eyes)
not when there's texts to re-read
are those tired eyes?
(contextualise)
is she smiling or thinking about leaving...

or just playing the game
that begins with when your name is called at last
and the chance she dances with you dances past
is she hovering or just escaping the fray?
is she thinking about leaving or just playing the game?

is it the fascination?
or does she slip and slide the tongue
like chocolate and stain the teeth
there's an argument buried in the twitches
the kind that sparks up eyes
that never flinches
she's an abbreviation
a substitution for the flick
and the realisation
that she may be playing makes you sick

are those tired eyes?
(oh those tired eyes)
not when there's texts to re-read
are those tired eyes?
(contextualise)
is she smiling or thinking about leaving...

or just playing the game
that begins with when your name is called at last
and the chance she dances with you dances past
is she hovering or just escaping the fray?
is she thinking about leaving or just playing the game?

and a handful has never looked to be such a dolly
it's a shame that the unusual is always the stay-at-home
are you in transition or are you stuck on the defensive
of a three on one situation?

or are you just playing the game?
(with those tired eyes)
that begins with when your name is called at last
(contextualise)
and the chance she dances with you dances past
is she hovering or just escaping the fray?
is she smiling or thinking about leaving?
or is she waiting to laugh last?
