Chest of Drawers

By the time you get this I’ll be coming back from space
With all the colours in my eyes, the bullet under my behind telling me I need to pick up pace
And you and her, and him and them, they’ll be questioning
“Where is it that you have been?” We need your reasoning
But I’m the vault and the chase

I don’t know where it is my heart leads
I don’t know what it is that love means
All the scars they left me with a key
To an empty chest of drawers

So I’ll be standing there with both arms out in the air, pretending I can fly
All the world down below, watching me go up in smoke, thinking I’m all the more wise
And you and her, and him and them, they’ll be tempting me,
On an education spin in philosophy
You bring me down from the skies

I don’t know where it is my heart leads
I don’t know what it is that love means
All the scars they left me with a key
To an empty chest of drawers

In good time I’ll be standing still
Afraid to try, up against my will
Although you inspire, you kill the thrill
Cos you’re the ball and the chain
You’re the ball and the chain
Cos you’re the ball…

I don’t know where it is my heart leads
I don’t know what it is that love means
All the scars they left me with a key
To an empty chest of drawers
