Let to My Own Devices Songtext

I get out of bed at half past ten
Phone up a friend who's a party animal
Turn on the news and drink some tea
Maybe if you're with me, we'll do some shopping

One day I'll read or learn to drive a car
If you pass the test, you can beat the rest
But I don't like to compete or talk street, street, street
I can pick up the best from the party animal

I could leave you, say goodbye
Or I could love you if I try
And I could
And left to my own devices, I probably would

Pick up a brochure about the sun
Learn to ignore what the photographer saw
I was always told that you should join a club
Stick with the gang if you want to belong


I was a lonely boy, no strength, no joy
In a world of my own at the back of the garden
I didn't want to compete or play out on the street
For in a secret life, I was a round head general

I could leave you, say goodbye
Or I could love you if I try
And I could
And left to my own devices, I probably would
Left to my own devices, I probably would, oh, I would

I was faced with a choice at a difficult age
Would I write a book or should I take to the stage?
But in the back of my head, I heard distant feet
Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat

It's not a crime when you look the way you do
The way I like to picture you
When I get home, it's late at night
I pour a drink and watch the fight

Turn off the TV, look at a book
Pick up the phone, fix some food
Maybe I'll sit up all night and day
Waiting for the minute I hear you say


I could leave you, say goodbye
Or I could love you if I try
And I could
And left to my own devices, I probably would

Come on baby, say goodbye
I could love you if I try
And I could
And left to my own devices, I probably would

Left to my own devices, I probably would
Come on baby
Left to my own devices, I probably would
