Look through the window [Repeat: x3]
I'm looking through a pane of glass

Look through the window (and what do you see?) [Repeat: x3]
I'm looking through a pane of glass

I'm so restless
I'm so restless
I'm so restless
We talk about this and we talk about that

I'm so restless (I'm bored as a cat) [Repeat: x3]
We talk about this and we talk about that

Light myself
Light myself
Light myself
Nicotine really goes to my head

Light myself (up a cigarette) [Repeat: x3]
Nicotine really goes to my head

If you're feeling all in take some aspirin
If you feel in a mess put your head on a head rest
Your back on a back rest, foot on a foot rest
Or your arm on an arm rest or your leg on a leg rest
Your back on a back rest, if you feel in a real mess
When you're feeling all in take some aspirin
Or some paracetamol

Always thought life should be so easy
It seems that I have misunderstood
Nothing I do can seem to please me
What I say don't sound so good

I always thought [Repeat: x3]
It seems that I have misunderstood
