Left To My Own Devices

作曲Tennant, Lowe
I get out of bed
At half past ten
And phone up a friend
Who's a party animal
Turn on the news
And drink some tea
Maybe if you're with me
We'll do some shopping
One day I'll read
Or learn to drive a car
If you pass the test
You can beat the rest
But I don't like to compete
Or talk street, street, street
I can pick up the best
From the party animal

I could leave you
Say goodbye
Or I could love you
If tried
And I could
And left to my own devices
I probably would

Pick up a brochure
About the sun
Learn to ignore
What the photographer saw
I was always told
That you should join a club
Stick with the gang
If you want to belong
I was a lonely boy
No strength, no joy
In a world of my own
At the back of the garden
I didn't want to compete
Or play out on the street
'Cause in a secret life
I was a Roundhead general

I could leave you
Say goodbye
Or I could love you
If tried
And I could
And left to my own devices
I probably would

I was faced with a choice
At a difficult age
Would I write a book?
Or should I take to the stage?
But in the back of my head
I heard distant feet
Che Guevara and Debussy
To a disco beat

It's not a crime when you look
The way you do
The way I like to picture you
When I get home
It's late at night
I pour a drink
And watch the fight
Turn off the TV
Look at a book
Pick up the phone
Fix some food
Maybe I'll sit up
All night and day
Waiting for the minute
I hear you say

I could leave you
Say goodbye
Or I could love you
If tried
And I could
And left to my own devices
I probably would
