Track 9 from Some Velvet Morning's debut long player from 2007, nominated for XFM's album of the year.

lyrics

I think I'll settle down
I'm getting tired of all this running round.
My body says it time
It's time I find myself a quiet life.

But I step outside like a newborn child, & I wanna play.
Oh I've tried to be good and I wish that I could.
But sometimes it don't work that way.

All I keep thinking about is "what I'll be missing?"
I turn around when I hear a new sound, I can't settle down.

It's time to take account
Assess my assets, maybe go without
Tighten up the strings
Look for pleasure in the simple things

So I close my eyes but it gets inside, no matter what I do
Oh your touch feels right but please don't tell my wife
Lets keep this just between me & you

All I keep thinking about is "what I'll be missing?"
I turn around when I hear a new sound, I can't settle down.

I've pissed my time against a wall & look at me now
What have I got, nothing at all
Just memories and please don't those from me

All I keep thinking about is "what I'll be missing"
I turn around when I hear a new sound, I can't settle down.
