lyrics

I've seen no canvas look so blank
Egos inflated before punctured and sank
Words stood up tall but actions fell short
A product of limited thought
And I've been played at my own game

For you evoked a time when once you were my neighbour
You solicit feeling but cannot return the favour
This scene it seems you've seen fit to disown
You gave a simple no then you were swiftly flown

I've seen no canvas look so white
Words rained down heavy but actions fell light
And it appears as a truce between limited minds
Though our own was poorly timed
And I've been played at my own game

For you evoked a time when once you were my neighbour
You solicit feeling but cannot return the favour
This scene it seems you've seen fit to disown
You gave a simple no then you were swiftly flown

So as far as I have been concerned
A table has been turned on me
Through the duration of this jaunt
So do not hide behind a wire
Let's in the end retire as one
And we can both get what we want
For what we want is both one and the same

For you evoked a time when once you were my neighbour
You elicit feeling but cannot return the favour
This scene it seems you've seen fit to disown
You gave a simple no and you were swiftly flown

You can tell all you want of your friends and the laughter and japes
But I've never seen anyone spin on a dime in quite the same way
You could at least let me know where you are
That doesn't seem too much to ask
These fleeting times when you're in my grasp
