Our Mutual Friend

The Divine Comedy

No matter how I try
I just can't get her out of my mind
And when I sleep I visualize her

I saw her in the pub. I met her later at the night-club
A mutual friend introduced us

We talked about the noise
And how it's hard to hear your own voice
Above the beat and the sub-bass

We talked and talked for hours
We talked in the back of our friend's car
As we all went back to his place

On our friend's settee she told me that she really liked me
And I said: Cool, the feeling's mutual
We played old 45's
I said: It's like the soundtrack to our lives
And she said: True, it's not unusual

Then privately we danced
But couldn't seem to keep our balance
A drunken haze had come upon us

We sank down to the floor and we sang
A song that I can't sing any more
And then we kissed and fell unconscious

I woke up the next day
All alone but for a headache
I stumbled out to find the bathroom
But all I found was her
Wrapped around another lover
No longer then is he our mutual friend
