Lukas Lyrics

by Natalie Imbruglia

They call him Lukas
Climbing the stairs to talk to you
Coming to tell his stories
Every single one of which is true
"Hello Lukas, I'm pleased to meet you
Now how do you do?"

So they go driving
Out to the river like lovers do
You smell of the summer
Maybe the summer just smells of you

One day I'm gonna be a famous writer
Some book like 'Love In The Afternoon'
It was all Lukas could say
Maybe one day we could run away, run away

I thought you'd never ask
I thought we'd never last

Now here comes Lukas
He'd done everything he wanted to
It was 20 years later
Come back to do what he promised to

He'd come back to make her happy
But these things don't always wait for you
And poor Lukas was late 'cause when he got back
She'd been married a day, gone away

I thought we'd never last
I thought you'd never ask

And Lukas would say
For a million lonely people another lonely day
For a million hearts that open, a million break

And the world's just a fallen angel in my wake
High up in heaven you can hear them say
Looking for Lukas but Lukas was always running away
