The Belly Of Your Bedroom | The Smith Street Band

Our hero sits unsteadily on a highway rocking chair.
Bottle of white wine, the wind it ruffles his well-cut hair.
And her eyes they focus backwards to the people that he needs.
They hold my instruments and my backup and shirts with cut-off sleeves.

She told me that she kissed you, and then she told me more.
Our hero knows I’m angry, and he knows that I’m a bore.
I’m sad when it is raining, when the sun comes I’m a freak.
Our hero lives in mild temperatures and gets eight hours sleep.

And I know that I’m a liar, and I know I can’t fill your desires
With a body that’s always going to let the both of us down.
And half smiles in the belly of your bedroom,
and half lies that I never should have told you.
My demise is only gonna let one of us down and darling I’m going.

My back it aches for transport, I can hardly feel my feet.
My stiches are slowly but surely falling out of me.
I know I’m not exciting but I never claimed to be.
And I live for this morning and I will live and let you leave.

And I don’t understand why we have to be on stand-by while you’re overseas.
Can’t you be free and still know me?
And our hero keeps a secret locked up somewhere in his teeth.
Maybe I’ll break one or two just to hear him speak.

And I know that I’m a liar, and I know I can’t fill your desires
With a body that’s always going to let the both of us down.
And half smiles in the belly of your bedroom,
and half lies that I never should have told you.
My demise is only gonna let one of us down

And darling I’m going to find somewhere for us to sleep.
And darling I’m going to work on every single inch of me.
And darling to find somewhere for us to sleep.
And darling I’m going to keep on living, to keep on living.
To keep on keeping on.

And I know that I’m a liar, and I know I can’t fill your desires
With a body that’s always going to let the both of us down.
And half smiles in the belly of your bedroom,
and half lies that I never should have told you.
My demise is only gonna let one of us down

And darling I’m going down.
