lyrics

Hey, do you know me? We met for 30 seconds a long time ago
(A thousand years ago, maybe more)
You thought I was like the others
Only wanted you for your body parts
(One particular body part)
You thought I was just a fool
I was just a tool, but not a monkey wrench
(Not THAT kind of tool)

But I wanted to kiss your ear in the morning
& I wanted to hold your hand in the city as we walked
I wanted to look at you and miss the movie
And I wanted to do the shopping for our family

Hey, do you know me? We met at the bus stop on the weekend
(Do you have the time?)
You asked if I knew when the bus comes
Then you thought about your boyfriend
(What kind of guy is he?)
Sometimes he might buy you a present
Then he thinks about the football
(Do you know who won?)

But he would never kiss your ear in the morning
& he would never hold your hand in the city as you walk
He’ll never look at you and miss the footy
And he only does the shopping somewhat reluctantly

Hey, do you know me? We’ll meet for a minute in the future
A hundred years from now, maybe more
I’ll ask “do you have these in my size?”
You’ll tell me as you ignore me
You might look me in the eye
I thought that I might die
(Can you die of love?)

Now I’ll never kiss your ear in the morning
And I’ll never hold your hand in the country as we walk
I’ll never look at you and miss that movie
And we’ll never do the shopping for our family

The Phosphenes Melbourne, Australia

The Phosphenes create imperfect three-minute pop songs from a standard dysfunctional rock line-up (with added harmonica for your convenience) that - replete with catchy hooks and upbeat rhythms, armed with poignant and quirky humour, and dripping in vocal harmonies - stick in your head and get you out of your chair. ... more
