Making Excuses – Mr Heavenly


I’m hearing voices
I chipped my front tooth…

 

 

 

 

Throw on
That old song
That’s unchanged melody
Could calm you just like me

Throw in
Some dancin’
That familiar rhythm
Clears up that schism

But he refuses
Makin’ excuses

You let your hair down
Kick off your heels now
Box in the moonlight
Til the sunrise taps you out

You’re feeling snake and rhythm
Bare feet and precision
The silhouette in constant motion
Spinning a web to get his attention

And he refuses
Makin’ excuses

He won’t get down
No no no no no no

I can’t move to this song
Right always moving wrong
I should be gone
I should be running along

No I got work in the morning
Think I ate something with poison
I’m hearing voices
I chipped my front tooth
I am telling the truth
I’m not making excuses

I know it’s alarming
I think I’ve come down with something
These are not ruses
I’m not telling lies
I might die
I’m not making excuses

You got no time to mend
A garden of lemons
That he planted in his kisses
When he thought you weren’t paying attention

He’s drinking milk so sour
Getting bored and by the hour
A silhouette in constant motion
Spinning a web of tired affection

Go in
With movement
A stiff stiletto
Will move repetto
It’s so fleeting
Bears repeating

I think you’re making it up
I think you’re making it up

I can’t move to the song
Right always moving wrong
I should be gone
I should be running along

No I got work in the morning
Think I ate something with poison
I’m hearing voices
I chipped my front tooth
I am telling the truth
I’m not making excuses

I know it’s alarming
I think I’ve come down with something
These are not ruses
I’m not telling lies
I might die
I’m not making excuses

No I got work in the morning
Think I ate something with poison
I’m hearing voices
I chipped my front tooth
I am telling the truth
I’m not making excuses

I know it’s alarming
I think I’ve come down with something
These are not ruses
I’m not telling lies
I might die
I’m not making excuses
