lyrics

you drift to the right while your letters point left
not sure what it is but it's something
i shake like a leaf every chance i get
try not to pay attention to me
sinners in love with the swimming hole
the locals know this place
take care of this cos it's all we'll ever need

down by the water i am out of paranoia
and the willow looks two toned
it's hot in the shade, there's a breeze so i stayed
and watch the families come and go
happy in pairs; i'm happy alone
on my own or with you
choose carefully before it chooses you

so here's your cue to go, we can't wait a minute more
the costume rack is at your right
so change you hair
and change your eyes
he said my look was getting vacant
that the conversation stalemated
so if you'll bow for me once more
i need your face for the encore

sting sting sting sings the song in my head
you're a catch of the very best kind
me me me with my fingertips
got an itch that i just can't find
notes can reach what you can't speak
so hum along this time

i have no regrets
you taste like strawberries and cigarettes

so here's your cue to go, we can't wait a minute more
the costume rack is at your right
so change you hair
and change your eyes
he said my look was getting vacant
the conversation stalemated
but if you'll come with me once more
i need your face for the encore
but if you'll come for me once more
you taste like strawberries & cigarettes
no i have no regrets
