Incendiary

It’s been different without you
but then you already knew
Trials and tribulations we face
lead us to a separate time and a separate place

Sometimes I carry frustration
when you are abound in elation
if we could only find a simple solution

We would create and criticise
for a future we’d fantasise
Now I’m left with the sorrow
while you are working for a new tomorrow

Yeah...

Sometimes I carry frustration
when you are abound in elation
if we could only find a simple solution
without the inevitable intrusion
Lose the illusion
so we can grow out of our confusion

You are Incendiary
You were born to be
a success without me
You are incendiary
and you know it
yeah you know it

Now I am waiting for another
a soul to call my brother
You never even looked back
it’s a quality I somehow lack

Wasting away at the beach
you had so little to teach
My lessons were already learned
but I was never taught how to cope when the tides would turn

Sometimes I carry frustration
when you are abound in elation
if we could only find a simple solution

So much I did expect
though I kept my self respect
floating in my half empty bottle
where I hoped to forget it all

I’m just a young Englishman
trying to find out my purpose
You are something else
a different breed to the rest of us

Sometimes I carry frustration
when you are abound in elation
if we could only find a simple solution
without the inevitable intrusion
Lose the illusion
so we can grow out of our confusion

You are Incendiary
You were born to be
a success without me
You are incendiary
and you know it
yeah you know it

The End
