Nerina Pallot My Last Tango Lyrics

Last updated:

Thousands, no millions of hours
We've been skirting around this whole subject
Like children stuck in a museum.
And i'm dry now.
My mouth will not speak, i'm weary and weak
And I only wanted to see you again.

If that's unfair, just let me know,
Just write it down, and then i'll go.

But you skate around my human skin
An apple where your throat begins
Just say....
Just tell the stars to give a sign,
Put it in a bottle.....
Say you're mine.

And it's better, better than music,
Better than words to be with you
But better that we're apart.
Can't you feel it?
It's taken me over, left me for dead like Ophelia.
Who knew a prince and survived?

And so I ask in every line
That I might learn of your design

Because you skate around my human skin
Your name is where my heart begins
Just say....
Just tell the stars to give a sign,
Put it in a bottle...
Say you're mine.

Because you skate around my human skin
Your name is where my heart begins
Just say....
Just tell the stars to give a sign,
Put it in a bottle...
Say you're mine.
