about

A totally self-indulgent track which probably owes a little bit to early Leonard Cohen and David Bowie.

lyrics

IF I TOLD U:
I bet you think I'm crazy.
I bet you often wonder what makes me tick.
I bet you think I'm crazy.
I bet you often wonder what makes me tick.
But if I told you it was you what would you do?

I bet you think I'm lazy.
I bet my lack of focus makes you sick.
I know you think I'm lazy.
I know my lack of focus often makes you sick.

But if I told you what to do, what would you do?
If I told you what to do, we know what you'd do...

If I told you.
If I told you.
If I told you.

I bet you think I love you.
I bet you think I want you all to myself.
I bet you think I love you.
I bet you think I want you like nobody else.
And if I told you it was true what would you do?
If I told you it was true there's nothing you could do.

If I told you.
If I told you.
If I told you.
