Lyrics
Shall I begin from here to tell everything ?
Relinquish honour in order to make it ring ?
You'd have to give me your promise
You won't expect too much from this
You'll just be happy with the gold that I bring

We've been playing cat and mouse now for far too long
I can't let it simmer and just go gruelling on
I have to make my move
I've still got so much to prove
You can't imagine the life that I've had

Chorus: if I could put the words together
If I could put the words together
If only I could put the words together
You'd understand

You've been a magnet stuck in my memory
I'd hide if I could but I'm red in a yellow sea
Consider me lost in aspic
(I'd give in but that's not my schtick)
You'll haunt me for ever, I know you will

Chorus: if I could put the words together
If I could put the words together
If only I could put the words together
You'd understand
