But I found out the night
We rode the Circle Line
It had to happen sometime

I thought it would not be a problem
But I found out the night
We rode the Circle Line
It had to happen sometime

And though you knew not about it
You could pick up on signs
Like being too polite
And unassertive 'cause I'm

Still missing something
And I've tried everything, oh
