Ocean Colour Scene Alibis Lyrics

Last updated:

You told so many lies
Your tongue is black with fireflies
But you spit them out and pretend you're sneezing
And every word is such a joke
With so many pasts you'd be ninety years old
Don't you wonder why the room keeps on leaving

Hey, hey - what's that I heard you say
Don't think that I would never need it
Hey, hey - what's that I heard you say
Don't think that I would ever believe it

It's just a thought and nothing more
That all your thoughts and moves are taught
And memorised each night before your sleeping
And every word is such a joke
Strung from neon masts flying flags you hope
Will win you friends and give your life some meaning

(Repeat chorus)

You told so many lies
Your tongue is stained with alibis
You've been around the world and found it pleasing
And every word is such a joke
With so many pasts you'd be a hundred years old
Don't you wonder why the room keeps on leaving

(Repeat chorus)
