Clockwork toy Lyrics

Clockwork toy by Ed Harcourt  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Clockwork toy Winding up and winding down
Like a clockwork toy clown
Or a jackhammer ploughing the ground
Drown your sorrows, baby, drown

Headless chicken lost control
Downward spiral takes its toll
Clutching at straws or imaginary goals
I'm gonna make it to the Hollywood Bowl

I can't get enough of the menu, did you get those flowers I sent you?
We're playing in every venue across the land
I'm making friends in every city, getting down to the nitty gritty
Promoting my self pity across the land

Oh my shoes are torn apart
Looking like a tramp with a broken heart
Feeling like a loser who had a false start
Guess all my dreams turned into surrealist art
Never knowing which way I'm going
Keep that bottle of red wine flowing
Dodging debts that I am owing
The world gets smaller but we keep growing

I can't get enough of the menu, did you get those flowers I sent you?
We're playing in every venue across the land
I'm making friends in every city, getting down to the nitty gritty
Promoting my self pity across the land

Heat is rising from the traffic jam
I just wish that I knew who I am
I'm concocting a miraculous plan
To be a man who doesn't give a damn

I can't get enough of the menu, did you get those flowers I sent you?
We're playing in every venue across the land
I'm making friends in every city, getting down to the nitty gritty
Promoting my self pity across the land

I can't get enough of the menu, did you get those flowers I sent you?
I'm playing in every venue across the land
I'm making friends in every city, getting down to the nitty gritty
Promoting my self pity across the land
Oh
