Too Much to Ask
by Arctic Monkeys



The smiles as she walked in the room
Have all turned into frowns
Am I too quick to assume
the love is no longer in bloom
The tantrums and the tears play a very different tune to what they did before
Their heads red raw
and the ending doesn't sound
like the happiest around
When you sobbed before
It felt much more
like the product of a squabble
Now there's reason for it to be something more
And there would be
Always uncertain weather the curtain has shut for good
She said see if it's still raining
I'm not dressed for it and

If you loved me and I interrupt to recieve a scar and stare but still decided to stop her there
Would it be outrageous to say
We're either shouting or we're shagging
Locked in tempestuous phase
At least that's how it felt yesterday
The eyes are getting heavier
and weather they are asleep or awake
it's a mystery
would a kiss be too much to ask
When you fit me as sunday's frozen pitch fits the thermos flask
It's a pity
It just hit me we can't go back
To the chest touching on the back
