Brickbat Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I ought to leave enough hot water
For your morning bath, but I'd not thought
I hate to hear you talk that way
But I can't bring myself to say I'm sorry

The past is always knocking incessant
Trying to break through into the present
We have to work to keep it out
But I won't be the first to shout it's over

I used to want to plant bombs at the last night of the proms
But now you'll find me with the baby in the bathroom
With that big shell, listening for the sound of the sea

I steal a kiss from you in the supermarket
I walk you down the aisle, you fill my basket
And through it all, the stick I take
Is worth it for the love we make

I used to want to plant bombs at the last night of the proms
But now you'll find me with the baby in the bathroom
With that big shell, listening for the sound of the sea
The baby and me

I stayed in bed, alone, uncertain
Then I met you, you drew the curtain
The sun came up, the trees began to sing
The light shone in on everything, I love you

The sun came up, the trees began to sing
The light shone in on everything, I love you
