Pet Shop Boys – Cricket wife

Cricket wife

[Verse 1]
Time has stopped
The air is still
Nothing moves
Or ever will
Present tense is future past
Velocity slows so fast
The air is still
Nothing moves or ever will

[Verse 2]
"I'm going home
I've had enough
Call a taxi
I want my stuff
Where are my shoes?
My coat?
My hat?
Get me out
I smell a rat
I can't remember why or when
They brought me here
But this is there
And then is now"
A sudden sigh
"And now it's late
And where am I?
And where am I?
Where am I?"
A sudden sigh
"Where am I?"

[Interlude]

[Verse 3]
"Whey are my shoes?
My coat, my hat?
Just get me out
I smell a rat
Whey are my shoes?
My coat, my hat?
Just get me out
I smell a rat
Whey are my shoes?
My coat, my hat?
Just get me out
I smell a rat"

[Verse 4]
"I can't remember why or when
They brought me here
But this then
And then is now"
A sudden sigh
A sudden sigh
"And now it's late
And where am I?"
A sudden sigh
A sudden sigh
And now it's late"

[Interlude]

[Verse 5]
Another sigh
Then sleep to dream
Laughing, flying from the scene
I saw you clearly in my mind
Fly and leave it all behind
Bones and blood
And anxious anger
Replaced in space by girlish laughter

[Interlude]

[Verse 6]
A sunny day
His turn to bat
The cricket wives
Sip tea and chat
"That's that, he's out
Not such a bad innings
They still have a fair enough chance of winning"
His boyish smile
She understands him
His lack of guile
Her soul demands him
He packs his bat
They're off together
And that was that
And is forever
