Courteeners, The - Sunflower Lyrics




Six acres of concrete wasteland,
One sunflower standing tall.
I didn't know your name, I didn't know your fame, I just liked you (that's all)

I can not buy you diamond rings, for Christ sake! I can barely sing
...I feel like a teenager in danger of doing that "falling for" thing
I didn't mean for this to happen but the greatest things happen
By accident, like the apple... on Issac's head.

We sat for hours, you measured your thumb against mine
Electricity, shooting down my spine.
We sat for hours, we waited 'til the sun went down
Alighted the night bus, nowhere near this town...

Six acres of concrete wasteland, one sunflower standing tall,
I didn't know your name, I didn't know your fame, I just proper liked you,
That's all

We talked historys and pasts,
I let you read the second draft,
Converging through the afternoon.
We sat for hours, you measured your thumb against mine... Electricity, shooting down my spine.
We sat for hours... You weathered my monologue, a burning beacon, burning through the fog.

Standing out from the crowd. That's just the way you are,
To look back I should not be around, I'll {open} movie star.
The girls that call in envy, the guys that call in envy.
Be la de da de daa de da dee doooh

We sat for hours, you measured your thumb against mine
Electricity, shooting down my spine.
We sat for hours, we waited 'til the sun went down
Alighted the night bus, nowhere near this town...

Six acres of concrete wasteland, one sunflower standing tall,
I didn't know your name I didn't know your fame, I just liked you, that's all.

    One minor correction:

    "To look that good should not be allowed, our local movie star
    The girls look on in envy, the guys look on in envy"

    Fucking impressive, this.
