lyrics

Straightaway

And I want the straightaway
Not the heart’s grey
File me down to such a sharp shape
And then wait

I want to know if you’re the one to see me straightaway
Given there’s time to think
Cause part of me is fast asleep, and part is wide-awake
Tending to, mending through, the heartache
Straightaway

And I want to fall from grace
Just to see your face
If you’d be right beside me
Ah but we’ll have to wait

I want to know if you’re the one to see me straightaway
Given there’s time to think
Cause part of me is fast asleep, and part is wide-awake
Tending to, mending through, the heartache (straightaway)
