Nobody With You

from by The Luxury

lyrics

I made a pretty good bastard, if I say so myself
Raising many a glass to my own sinking health
And it just very well may surprise you to learn
How every mistake was supposed to occur
And amid all of the smoke, the violence and noise
I found pictures for frames, I found playgrounds and toys
All the things you once enjoyed, so

If you’re not gonna be somebody
Can I be nobody with you?
Dressing to the nines for no-one
Parading an abandoned avenue
If you’re not gonna be somebody

Please, put your heart into your feet
You can run or you can bleed
Is it really such a trick, such a mystery?
I tried, but a little bit too hard
Strumming my guitar
As you sang a little Freddy Mercury

We know there’s a fighter down below
But without the nerve to show
So we give it up and go

If you’re not gonna be somebody
Can I be nobody with you?
Dressing to the nines for no-one
Parading an abandoned avenue

‘Cuz I could pull the melody from out of my head
And never sing another song
Or play another note before we’re dead
But your harmony sings on
