Elastica : The Bitch Don't Work

Is it good, or just an elasticated waste?...

So this is goodbye then? Look, you won't believe this, but I'm really sorry it didn't work out between us. I really tried hard in the beginning, I just didn't feel any real commitment from your side. Going through the motions, that's all it felt like. And now you're walking out for good, leaving this scratchy, spiky, slapdash farewell note which was obviously knocked out in five minutes as a kind of spiteful pisstake - so even now, I can't help feeling you're still holding something back. Is it a kind of revenge? Was it the drugs? Or just laziness? Never mind, too late to fix it now. No really, I think we'll be friends again when this is finally all over. Take care. You will keep in touch, won't you?
