[VERSE 2]
When I missed you you were my life
When I missed you you were my life
So at ease in the midnight sky
So at ease in the midnight sky
My insides will look like wire
My insides will look like wire
Paralysed as if to prove my thoughts
 
REPEAT CHORUS
 
[VERSE 3]
My smile as real as a hyena's
My smile as real as a hyena's
Burns an express-way to my skull
Burns an express-way to my skull
Well I will stick myself together again
My spirit, soul and body know I can't pretend
 
 
[MIDDLE]
 
This is played by a stylophone, but I have tabbed it so you can play along in this bit too. JDB will maybe play this bit on guitar live, like he does with Kevin Carter, sliding around on the D-string.
