Catch In The Dark

Passenger


Well she calls me up when she's broken
Says to leave my front door open
I come home to find her smoking
With her eyes all fragile and thin
She's always been hopeless at hoping
Always coped badly with coping
And I never know when she's joking
She never lets anyone in

I know I'm a fool to let her run away with my heart
And she'll never tire of these games
Loving her is like playing catch in the dark
I'm a tear drop in an ocean of flames

And we'll drink too much for a wednesday
She'll ask me why none of her men stay
I tell her just what her friends say
It never goes down too well
And she'll stay hear til late in the evening
But she's always arriving or leaving
Never decides to believe in
The people who know her so well

I know I'm a fool to let her run away with my heart
And she'll never tire of these games
Loving her is like playing catch in the dark
I'm a tear drop in an ocean of flames

She says if we're single at 40
We'll get married and move to the country
But I know she'll never want me
Then its five fifteen in the morning
I reach for her whilst I'm yawning
She leaves me with no warning
