Cole, Lloyd - Four Flights Up Lyrics




I was woken up at 4 AM by your screams and anguished cries
Your mother was singing in the bathroom
He will never be my child
Oh, baby talks in her sleep so loud

We're living four flights up
But I swear right now
It feels like underground

You have absolutely no common sense
Yes I know that's your charm
You spend the whole day on the phone
You say well it helps you stay calm
You cling to my arm yes I know that's your charm

And when I ask you what you want you say a diamonte crocodile
Well then could you give me some peace
You say, "Well maybe for a while"
Sometimes you know you could almost be a child

Oh, must you tell me all your secrets
When it's hard enough to love you knowing nothing
We're living four flights up
But I swear right now
It feels like underground

You are your own worst enemy
So don't expect my sympathy
Oh, go back to your mother's house
And cry your little heart out
You came driving back to town
In a beat up Grace Kelly car
Looking like a friend of Truman Capote
Looking exactly like you are
Yes, I know that's your charm

So don't ask if I still want you only ask me if I must
I've been blown around so long
Don't know which senses to trust
Oh no... but I know that I must

Oh, must you tell me all your secrets
When it's hard enough to love you knowing nothing
We're living four flights up
But I swear right now
It feels like underground

    An original relation to say the least. Such a fantastic way to describe it..

    i was woken up at four a.m. by your screams and anguished cries
    your mother was singing in the bathroom, she will never be my child
    oh baby talks in her sleep so loud
    we're living four flights up but i swear right now it feels like underground
    well you have absolutely no common sense, yes i know that's your charm
    you spend the whole day on the phone, you say well it helps you stay calm
    you cling to my arm, yes i know that's your charm
    and when i ask you what you want you say do you mind hey crocodile
    well then could you give me some peace, you say well maybe for a while
    sometimes you know you could almost be a child
    oh must you tell me all your secrets
    when it's hard enough to love you knowing nothing
    we're living four flights up but i swear right now it feels like underground
    you are your own worst enemy, so don't expect my sympathy
    oh go back to your mother's house and cry your little heart out
    you can drive them back to town in a beat-up grace kelly car
    looking like a friend of truman capote, looking exactly like you are
    yes, yes i know that's your charm
    so don't ask me if i want you, only ask me if i must
    i been blown around so long, don't know which senses to trust
    oh no, but i know that i must
    oh must you tell me all your secrets
    when it's hard enough to love you knowing nothing
    we're living four flights up but i swear right now it feels like underground
