Arctic Monkeys – Cornerstone

16 April 2012

Thought I saw you in The Battleship
but it was only a look a like.
She was nothing but a vision trick
Under the warning light.

She was close, close enough to be your ghost,
But my chances turned to toast
When I asked her if I could call her your name.

I thought I saw you in The Rusty Hook
Huddled up in wicker chair.
I wandered over for a closer look
And kissed whoever was sitting there.

She was close, and she held me very tightly
‘Til I asked awfully politely, “Please
Can I call you her name?”

And I elongated my lift home.
Yeah, I let him go the long way round.
I smelt your scent on the seat belt
And kept my short cuts to myself.

I thought I saw you in The Parrot’s Beak
Messing with the smoke alarm.
It was too loud for me to hear her speak
And she had a broken arm.

It was close, so close that the walls were wet
And she wrote it out in Letraset:
“No you can’t call me her name”.

Tell me where’s your hiding place.
I’m worried I’ll forget your face
And I’ve asked everyone.
I’m beginning to think I imagined you all along.

I elongated my lift home.
Yeah, I let him go the long way round.
I smelt your scent on the seat belt
And kept my short cuts to myself

I saw your sister in The Cornerstone
On the phone to the middle man.
When I saw that she was on her own
I thought she might understand.

She was close, well you couldn’t get much closer.
She said “I’m really not supposed to but yes,
You can call me anything you want”.
