Marillion - Quartz



Tekst piosenki:


  
   I can imagine nothing more tedious
  Than trying to have fun with you again
  Maybe it's just something in my mind
  But I hate feeling like I'm trying all the time
  It's a kind of lie
  When we pretend that we're still friends
  I'm sure you're not exactly short of people to
  hang out and laugh at your jokes
  Tell you you look great
  You wouldn't want me around
  Making it all feel "forced "
  ..and "put down"
  
  And every time I smile to wonder if I'm laughin' at you
  And with every little grin you don't want to be wonderin'
  Just exactly what it is I'm taking pleasure in
  
  Although I always said
  We were basically the same and all one
  All one
  It's so easy to persuade myself
  I'm clockwork and you're quartz
  
  I guess that irony
  Will surely be
  The death of me
  
  And every time I smile d'you wonder if I'm laughin' at you?
  And with every little grin you don't want to be wonderin'..
  
  Although I always said
  We were basically the same and all one
  All one
  It's so easy to persuade myself
  I'm clockwork and you're quartz
  
  You're only happy when you're oiled and jewelled
  You're only happy when you wind me up and I know
  You're so reliable it isn't true
  And it's so easy for me to break down
  If I could jump a ride between the skin and silicon then
  We could join hands and understand. Hallelujah!
  But I listen
  to the ticking
  I guess we're worlds apart ...
  It's so hard
  So hard
  
  I know there's no going back
  And you know there's no going back
  
  You're only happy when you're oiled and jewelled
  You're only happy when you're oiled and jewelled
  You're never happy
  
  I need maintenance
  I need patience
  I'm not foolproof
  I'm not waterproof
  I'm not shockproof
  Bombproof
  Bulletproof
  Fireproof
  Leakproof
  Childproof
  Stainproof
  Pressureproof
  
  I know I told myself
  We're all basically the same and all one all one
  Y'know sometimes I just can't help myself
  I'm clockwork and you're quartz
  I'm clockwork and you're quartz
  
  I know I never get the balance right
  And turn up half an hour late night after night
  And being totally dependable is so very commendable
  Although you're never wrong
  One of these days.. you're just gonna stop.
