lyrics

Things I cannot fix
are numerous in number
things I cannot quit
keep my life encumbered
there are student loans, and fifteen pounds
and cigarettes with cocktails on Saturday night
and work I'll never finish
and things that'll never be right
but of all my stupid bad habits
the one I can't stand the most
is the feeling that you're somewhere out there
and I'm holding onto your ghost

I can't quit you
I can't get the touch of your skin
off the top of my mind
the way that you look has driven me blind
my heart beats swiftly it won't stay confined
and I wish I could quit you
and leave you behind
and I wish I could quit you
then you'd be behind me
I could move on
find another
he'll be great, he'll be marvellous
and we'll sleep in on Sundays
I'll write new love songs
and all of our parents
yeah, they'll get along
and our friends too
they wouldn't be blue

there are student loans, and fifteen pounds
and cigarettes with cocktails on Saturday night
and work I'll never finish
and things that'll never be right
but of all my stupid bad habits
the one I can't stand the most
is the feeling that you're somewhere out there
and I'm holding onto your ghost

I can't quit you
I can't get the touch of your skin
off the top of my mind
the way that you look has driven me blind
my heart beats swiftly it won't stay confined
and I wish I could quit you
and leave you behind
and I wish I could quit you
you won't be by my side
and I wish I could quit you
I've got other things
in mind
