Lyrics
And I’m hiding behind your sofa.
I’m the culture shock. Temporary block.
And I’ll love you for the next five minutes.
I’m your magazine, ‘cos you read me clean
Without taking any time for pictures.
I’m your hand grenade and your lemonade,
‘Cos I’ll blow up and leave you soured.

Find somebody with a working’ car and drive them crazy, too.

The big surprise is me!

I worked extra hard to pick your birthday card,
You just threw it out and kept my money.
I got up at six to make your favorite dish,
So I sank when you said you weren’t hungry.
Filed your tax return, let some candles burn,
Played Mozart to make your plants grow.
Then I clipped the trees, got down on my knees,
Not to work, just to pray you’d see me.

Find somebody who will paint your house, and gloss them over, too.
