false alarm lyrics – kt tunstall

i’m trying to put this thing to bed
i’ve drugged it in its sleep
there isn’t many memories
i’m comfortable to keep

this ball keeps rolling on
it’s heading for the streets
keep expecting you to send for me
the invitation never comes

[chorus:]
each time i turn around
there’s nothing there at all
so tell me why i feel like
i’m up against a wall
but maybe it’s a false alarm
every answer sounds the same
just colours bleeding into one
that hasn’t got a name
maybe i can’t see
maybe it’s just me

now the curtain’s coming up
the audience is still
i’m struggling to cater for
the sp*ce i’m meant to fill

and distance doesn’t care
no, distance doesn’t care

[chorus]

i’m trying to put this thing to bed
i drugged it in its sleep
remember what you said
are you comfortable to keep it?

keep it
