Lyrics
Here's a song, it's got everything you want
Except no violins

I can see the way you're leaning on the door
The shape you're in

You better go now cause you'll never be sad enough

Cut it out I mean it I don't even want to hear it
No violence

Orchestrate a little extra
Don't do it like you came in

Next time you might want to call me up

I'll see you walking down lonely street
Got the look but it's incomplete
And I don't want you to start
Playing with that cause it's nowhere near my heart
You better go now please
Please no violins

Look at me I made it baby listen can't you hear it
No violins

I can see the way you're driven on the carpet
The shape you're in

You better not come back, better not come back

Here's the door use it been great wait a minute
No violence

Conduct yourself like a human cause I'm not listening

This is the last sound
I am going to hear

I'll see you walking down lonely street
Got the look but it's incomplete
And I don't want you to start
Playing with that cause it's nowhere near my heart
You better go now please
Please no violins

I'll see you walking down lonely street
Got the look but it's incomplete
And I don't want you to start
Playing with that cause it's nowhere near my heart
You better go now please
Please no violins

Here's a song, it's got everything you want
Except no violins

I can see the way you're leaning on the door
The shape you're in

You better go now cause you'll never be sad enough

[Repeat: x3]
You'll never be sad enough
