Anticipation has the habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight thereâll be some love
Tonight thereâll be a ruckus, yeah regardless of whatâs gone before
Sat at the side of the pool at one of your houses
With wet white trousers on
And worlds collide as the evening continues, the dignity fucks off
Her brother's gone off to the strippers to make up for all the lost time
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
Lady where's your love gone?
I was looking but can't find it anywhere
They always offer when there's loads of love around
But when you're short of some it's nowhere to be found
We all want someone to shout for
Yeah, everyone wants somebody to adore
But your heroes aren't what they seem
When you've been where we've been
