I can't 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

And every time I smile to wonder if I'm laughing at you
And with every little grin you don't want to be wondering
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 that I'm clockwork and you're quartz
I'm clockwork and you're quartz

You're only happy when you're oiled and jeweled
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
We could join hands and understand, hallelujah
But I listen to my own ticking
I guess we're worlds apart but it's so hard, so hard, so hard

Songwriters
PETER JOHN TREWAVAS, STEVEN HOGARTH (T), STEVEN THOMAS ROTHERY (T), MARK KELLY (T), IAN MOSLEY (T)
