- LyricsIf you're a new band breaking be aware cause she won't be far behind
But if you've got no airplay she won't care and you better move aside
She'll be down south top ten in her mouth in the blink of an eye
She'll be top draw on the backstage floor till the new band arrives
Ooh she's got standards but your call if your at twenty five
- LyricsI don't see how another days gonna make us change our minds
So why don't we go separate ways and save us a bit of time
We can't go on trying living behind this worn out and thin disguise
I don't want to try talking it out I don't need another fight
It just won't work when
- LyricsOne, just one and then I'll go
Though it's on the cards
That an argument is imminent I know
But it's not like I'll get carried home
It's just that I believe that she don't think
