“Do Me a Favour”by Arctic Monkeys
Well, the morning was completeThere was tears on the steering wheel, dripping on the seatSeveral hours or several weeksI'd have the cheek to say they're equally as bleakIt's the beginning of the end; the car went up the hillAnd disappeared around the bend; ask anyone, they'll tell you thatIt's these times that it tendsThe start to breaking up, to start to fall apartHold on to your heartDo me a favour, break my noseDo me a favour, tell me to go awayDo me a favour, stop asking questionsShe walked away while her shoes were untiedAnd the eyes were all redYou could see that we've cried, and I watched, and I waited'Till she was inside, forcing a smile and waving goodbyeCuriosity becomes a heavy loadToo heavy to hold, too heavy to holdCuriosity becomes a heavy loadToo heavy to hold, will force you to be coldAnd do me a favor, and ask, if you need some help!She said, do me a favour, and stop flattering yourself!How to tear apart the ties that bindPerhaps 'fuck off' might be too kindPerhaps 'fuck off' might be too kind
