"What was the question again"
"What made you think that there was anything suspicious about it?"

Don't look, don't bring it up, I know what I'm up against
This is all in self defence, 'cos I need to protect myself
I need to protect myself like you need to convince yourself
And if that's what it takes then that's what it takes

Barry M, my oldest friend, what can you do for me now?
And Clinique, if you could speak, you'd tell me what to do...

Close your eyes and think of Erin O'Connor or pretend I'm Lily Cole
And I'll imagine you're someone else as well

And we'll be ok, alright, ok for one night
We'll be ok, alright, ok for one night
I need to protect myself like you need to convince yourself
And if that's what it takes then that's what it takes

Close your eyes and think of Erin O'Connor or pretend I'm Lily Cole

And I'll imagine you're someone else as well

Barry M, my oldest friend, what can you do for me now?
And Clinique, if you could speak, you'd tell me what to do

Barry M, my oldest friend, what can you do for me now?
And Clinique, if you could speak, you'd tell me what to do

Close your eyes and think of Erin O'Connor or pretend I'm Lily Cole
And I'll imagine you're someone else as well

Close your eyes and think of Erin O'Connor or pretend I'm Lily Cole
And I'll imagine you're someone else as well

And we'll be ok, alright, ok
We'll me ok, alright, ok
