Arctic Monkeys - The View From The Afternoon Lyrics




Anticipation has the habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there'll be some love
Tonight there'll be a rawkus, regardless of what's gone before

I want to see all of the things that we've already seen
The lairy girls hung out the window of the limousine
Of course it's fancy dress
And they're all looking quite full on
In bunny ears and devil horns and how

Anticipation has the habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there'll be some love
Tonight there'll be a rawkus, regardless of what's gone before

I want to see all of the things that we've already seen
I wanna see you take the jackpot out the fruit machine
And put it all back in
You've got to understand that you can never beat the bandit, no

And she won't be surprised and she won't be shocked
When she's pressed the star after she's pressed unlock
And there's verse and chapter sat in her inbox
And all that it says is that you've drank a lot
And you should bear that in mind tonight
Bear that in mind
You should bear that in mind tonight
Bear that in mind

And you can pour your heart out but her reasoning will block
Owt you send her after nine o'clock

Anticipation has the habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there'll be some love
Tonight there'll be a rawkus, regardless of what's gone before

And she won't be surprised and she won't be shocked
When she's pressed the star after she's pressed unlock
And there's verse and chapter sat in her inbox
And all that it says is that you've drank a lot
And you should bear that in mind tonight
Bear that in mind
You should bear that in mind tonight
Bear that

And you can pour your heart out around 3 o'clock
When the 2-for-1s undone the writer's block

  18. alexandra gonzalez

    does anyone know where to find the version where Alex has a monologue at the beginning? something about “I knew I had to run” ??

    Adam Ayadi

    'Running was always a big thing in our family , specially running away from the police.'
    It is from the 1962 film The loneliness of the long distance runner. The version was originally on the directors vimeo but there is now a re-edit in its place.

  19. clt qdr

    Tonight there'll be a ruckus, yeah, regardless of what's gone before
    I want to see all of the things that we've already seen
    The lairy girls hung out the window of the limousine
    Of course it's fancy dress
    And they're all looking quite forlorn in bunny ears and devil horns and how
