No Man In The World

No Man In The World

Tindersticks

Seems like so long ago now
But I can still remember those feelings
Of being left alone with myself
Sitting in the garden
Watching our house burn
Knowing I couldn't help it
It always had to end in a big statement like that
We were always so intense
Out of control
We never understood what we had
Never knew how to deal with it
Always tearing at each other
The violence and the shame
Banging my head against the wall
Wanting to explode

And it was my idea
And I put you there
I lied and said I didn't want you
You were running to someone else
Breaking the spell
Being able to see me for what I really was
And then the flames

Wanted you
Make me feel like no man in the world wanted you
Still feel the flame
Still feel the cold
Still feel the flame
Gets so cold around the stove
They still reach for me
Where you gonna go now
They still reach for me
Where you gonna go now

Made you feel like no man in the world wanted you
Made me feel like no woman in the world wanted me

Still feel the flame
Some days it seems I've left those feelings so far behind
Still feel the cold
But they're always there, waiting

Still feel the flame
Tempting, trying to release you
It's so cold around the stove
Don't believe, don't cherish your pretence
They still reach for me
You strike a match
Where you gonna go now
The thrill of having nothing
They still reach for me
The smell of the flames
Where you gonna go now

Made me feel like no man in the world wanted you
Made me feel like no woman in the world wanted me
