Fly

If I could be a fly on the wall in your mind
would we survive a day?
If you could be a fly on the wall in mine
How long before you fly away?

If I could be a fly on the wall in your mind
Would we survive a day?
If you could be a fly on the wall in mine
Would you fly away?
Would you fly away?

She's even more mysterious asleep
What is she dreaming about?
I dreamt she left the bed and packed her stuff
Took an aeroplane out
And there between the lines she wrote
To say why she was going
Was every card held to my chest
How could these have been showing?

If you're in my head is the mystery dead
What are you doing behind the eyeballs?
I was running down to the underground
Were you pursuing?
Are you a fly on the wall?
How was every stray emotion scratched onto my forehead
For your reading?

Seemed liked a pretty good idea at the time
To get beneath the skin
If I could be a fly on the wall in your mind
I'd probably do myself in
We set up in business, contributed one heart each
I dreamt that yours was creeping slowly
Out of reach

If you're rattling round, what do you think you've found?
You don't belong here
We don't get to know it all
Tell me how can I just smile and lie like nothing's wrong here?
Are you a fly on the wall?
How was every stray emotion scratched out on my forehead
For your reading?

And if you're in my head is the mystery dead
What you doing?
You got no place here at all
I was running down to the underground
Were you pursuing?
Are you a fly on the wall?
How was every stray emotion scratched onto my forehead
For your reading?
