a dreamer

I keep repeating it over and over again to convince myself that it’s true.



Kate Nash - Kiss That Grrrl

That girl is giving you the eye 
And I, and I, and I don’t like it
How she makes you laugh so much,

How when you’re talking, that you touch, 
She’s instantly more pretty and more interesting than me, 
She is thinking before she speaks, 
She is not all red and angry 
I bet she doesn’t like to eat, 
I bet her feet don’t even stink
I know your eyes are just for me, but 

Kiss that grrrl and I will shrink up 
And I will die and I will think up 
A thousand ways that I can hurt you
And you will never touch my hand
Kiss that grrrl and I will shrink up 
And I will die and I will think up 
A thousand ways that I can hurt you 
And you will never touch my hand

Tonight we have not got on well
I know I have given you hell
I wish we should have stayed at home 
'Cause now I'm standing on my own 
And you are having a nice time 
With a girl I really don’t like 
I know your eyes are just for me, but 

Kiss that grrrl and I will shrink up 
And I will die and I will think up 
A thousand ways that I can hurt you
And you will never touch my hand
Kiss that grrrl and I will shrink up 
And I will die and I will think up 
A thousand ways that I can hurt you 
And you will never touch my hand

Baby, please don’t break my heart 
'Cause you are the only one I love 
I’ll be by your side till the very end 
'Cause you're my only friend

Kiss that grrrl and I will shrink up 
And I will die and I will think up 
A thousand ways that I can hurt you
And you will never touch my hand
Kiss that grrrl and I will shrink up 
And I will die and I will think up 
A thousand ways that I can hurt you 
And you will never touch my hand



Kate Nash - Early Christmas Present

How could you let her touch you in a place you didn’t want touched?
How could you let her get so close to you
That she could kiss your neck and kiss it gently
And kiss it gently, and kiss it gently?

How could you take her number from her when you met her in that bar?
How could you offer her a drink, and then the front seat of your car?
And kiss her gently, and kiss her gently, and kiss her hard?

How could you lie to me right to my face?
How could your best friend’s, ex-girlfriend’s younger sister’s mate
Know before I did? Before I did, before I did?

How could you string me on for so long for just over 11 months?
How could I be so stupid and so blind?
You know I think I had a hunch about this anyway
About this whole thing, about this girl

I thought that it was just a phase, you were so distant and so cold
I thought that it was just your age, and the fear of getting old
You acted different, you were so different, you were impatient

And you lied to me right to my face
And your best friend’s, ex-girlfriend’s younger sister’s mate
Knew before I did, before I did, before I did

'Cause if you run into the eye of the storm
Take it ‘round the back, you better hit the floor
'Cause screaming no, I can't take it, I can't take it
I can’t take it anymore ‘til your eyes and your mouth is sore

Doesn’t help anyone, doesn’t do any good
But you’d do something else if you only could
And I wish I could grow up, wish I could be well behaved
But every time I look you in the eye, I send you to the grave

And that pretty, pretty girl, with her nice, sweet lips
With your eyes on her chest, and your hands on her hips
This itch, this burn, this pain, this draining feeling
Turns out needs a cream to help it go away
So thanks for leaving me the gift you gave

And no, I can’t take it, I can’t take it, I can’t take it anymore
I can’t take it, I can’t take it, I can’t take it anymore
I can’t take it, I can’t take it, I can’t take it anymore
I can’t take it, I can’t take it, I can’t take it anymore
I can’t take it, I can’t take it, I can’t take it anymore
