Arctic Monkeys - Despair In The Departure Lounge Lyrics




He's pining for her
In a people carrier
There might be buildings and pretty things to see like that
But architecture won't do
Although it might say a lot about the city or town
I don't care what they've got keep on turning them down
It don't say the funny things she does
Don't even try and cheer him up, because
It just won't happen

He's got the feeling again
This time on the aeroplane
There might be tellys in the back of the seats in front
But Rodney and Del won't do
Although it might take your mind off the aches and the pains
Laugh when he falls through the bar
But you're feeling the same
'Cause she isn't there to hold your hand
She won't be waiting for you when you land

It feels like she's just nowhere near
You could well be out on your ear
This thought comes closely followed by the fear
And the thought of it
Makes you feel a bit
Ill

Yesterday I saw a girl
Who looked like someone you might knock about with
And almost shouted
And then reality kicked in within us
It seems as we become the winners
You lose a bit of summat
And half wonder if you won it at all

And don't say 'owt 'cause you've got no idea
And she's still nowhere near
And the thought comes closely followed by the fear
And the thought of it
Makes you feel a bit
...Ill

Despair in the departure lounge
It's one and they'll still be around at three
No signal and low battery
What's happened to me

    [Verse 1]
    He's pining for her in a people carrier
    There might be buildings and pretty things to see like that but architecture won't do
    Although it might say a lot about the city or town
    I don't care what they've got, keep on turning 'em down
    It don't say the funny things she does
    Don't even try and cheer him up because it just won't happen

    [Verse 2]
    He's got the feeling again, this time on the aeroplane
    There might be tellies in the back of the seats in front, but Rodney and Del won't do
    Although it might take your mind off the aches and the pains
    Laugh when he falls through the bar but you're feeling the same
    'Cause she isn't there to hold your hand
    She won't be waiting for you when you land

    [Chorus]
    And it feels like she's just nowhere near
    You could well be out on your ear
    This thought comes closely followed by the fear
    And the thought of it makes you feel a bit ill

    [Verse 3]
    Yesterday, I saw a girl who looked like someone you might knock about with
    And almost shouted
    And then reality kicked in within us, it seems as we become the winners
    You lose a bit of summat, and half wonder if you won it at all

    [Chorus]
    And don't say owt 'cause you've got no idea
    And she's still nowhere near
    And the thought comes closely followed by the fear
    And the thought of it makes you feel a bit ill

    [Outro]
    Despair in the departure lounge
    It's one and they'll still be around at three
    No signal and low battery
    What's happened to me?

  23. Uriel Covain

  28. miracle aligner

    underrated song

  29. g0d_h1m53lf

    They should release an album with every song not released on an album and call it "I Can't Believe I'm..." since it has songs from singles.

    Luis Morales S

    u r goddamn right, alf

    iron can

    That's an amazing idea

    Batphoned 78

    Yes, what an album that would be!

    Andrea Albertini

    I made my own playlist on Spotify : AM b-sides.
    Unfortunately, the covers are not available on Spotify.

    Tyree Flores

    Andrea Albertini yeah they are

  30. Alex Rodriguez

    I don't care what they've got, keep on turning them down

  31. AndreaYeet

    *So I found this song yesterday, and I've been listening to this album for two years, and honestly it broke my heart, you can hear the pain it bring for Alex to say the next word in the song, to the point he actually stops between words, the beat is slow and melancholy, and just thinking of Alex being broken hearted makes my heartache, who would break such a beautiful soul?*

    angel murillo

    Poetry is beautiful

    TheLiveEleven
