Once Around the Block
Badly Drawn Boy Lyrics


You quiver like a candle on fire
I'm putting you out
Maybe tonight we could be the last shout
But I'm fascinated by your style
Your beauty will last for a while

You're feeling instead of being
The more that I live on the outside
There's nothing to give
I'm infatuated by your moves
I've got to search hard for your clues

I want to repair your desire
And call it a gift
That I stole from just wanting to live
How I see the vision through your eyes
Your innocence no longer fuels surprise

Trying to outrun your fear
You're running to lose, heart on your sleeve
And your sole in your shoes
Take a left,
A sharp left
And another left, meet me on the corner
And we'll start, again.

Maybe tonight we could be the last shout
But I'm fascinated by your style
Your beauty will last for a while

You're feeling instead of being
The more that I live on the inside
There's nothing to give
I'm infatuated by your moves
I'm got to search out for your clues

I want to repair your desire
And call it a gift that I stole from
just wanting to live
Now I see the vision through your eyes
Your innocence no longer fuels surprise

Trying to outrun your fear
Your running to lose, heart on your sleeve
And your soul in your shoes
Take a left, a sharp left
And another left, meet me on the corner
And we'll start again

It took me sixteen years to find this song. I used to have it going round in my head and I'd hum it to bemused people, it was driving me mad, the lost song. Finally heard it playing in a shop and practically jumped on the counter to demand what was playing. What an absolutely amazing song :)

Dude the same thing happened to me

Mark Richards

Exactly the same thing happened to me, but I kept humming it to people to see if they could tell me what it was but they couldn't. Then one day I'm watching come dine with me and it starts playing so used soundhound to recognise it, I can't tell ya how long it took me to find this but glad I did.

Audrey Howat

Me too. I kept hearing it, in shops, googled the "Dooby doop doooby do aah" song. Glad I found it.

I played this song when I walked back from seeing a girl I really liked for what I didn't realise was the last time. This song gave me hope and made me feel cheery, thinking I'd see her all through summer. But I didn't, and the end of one chapter is the start of another. I learnt self respect in the end :) and I'm happy now, this song is my bookmark
