Lyrics

Moving Sideways

Written By: Richard Parker

We got on like a house on fire
But houses never burn for long
Not like desire
We never got down to the wire
I say I no longer want to
Because I'm a good liar

We all say we are better off this way

The only thing more natural than what we shared
Is to never recover but a fraction of it before we are dead
And there we have the meaninglessness of life summed up in what I just said
And so we drift along regretting times long gone
Satisfied that total loss of faith in human beings makes us stronger
la la la la la la la la yeah I'm stronger la la la la la la la la

And so we drift along
Oh, how it's been so long
Since all we shared has gone

We got on like a house on fire
But houses never burn for long
Not like desire
We never got down to the wire
I say I no longer want you
Because I'm a good liar

We all say we are better off this way

There's always plenty of vacancies all along memory lane
Good people travel down there never to be seen again
And eventually mainly only bad memories remain
And what a shame
And so we drift along
Regretting times long gone
Satisfied that total loss of faith in human beings makes us stronger
la la la la la la la la yeah I'm stronger la la la la la la la la

And so it all goes on

We got on like a house on fire
But houses never burn for long
Not like desire
Desire burns for long
There's fire burning strong
So long after you have gone
And only you could put it out
Wish that I could put it out
Only you could put it out (It wont burn out like that old house)
Only you could put it out (It wont burn out like that old house)
Put it out (Obstructed now by something else)
Put it out (Obstructed now by something else)
It wont burn out

My Own Reflection

Written By: Richard Parker

I’m in love
With my own reflection
When I see it in your eyes
Nothing’s on the other side
We’re all alone
In a sea of lies
The sweetest lies
Oh we’re always on the other side
So tired of
Eternal circumspection
But when I look in your pretty eyes
Everything is cast aside
When we’re alone
In our sea of lies
The sweetest lies
Oh where you’re my floatation device
We’re all alone

I feel I’m in the centre of the universe with you
I feel I’m in the centre of the universe
When I’m with you

Feel myself absorbed in you
And take you further in I do
I’d take you to the very end of time
Yeah, I’m in love
With a sea of lies
The sweetest lies
That we’ll always be by each other’s side
But it will always be an echo
Always be an echo
Always be an echo

Feel myself absorbed in you
Indulge in all you want me to
I’d hold you to the very end
Take me to the other side
(I’d indulge in all you want me to)
(Indulge in all you want)
