in a room lyrics – house of love

when i get there i’ll be ready
with a map and a pen – duty is a creed
there are lessons for the lonely
when i’m drunk in a room
that’s when i think of you
oh my baby – she went awol
drove to a shop, never to return
and it broke me, like a flower baked in the sun
a hot spanish sun

but i can’t slow down
no i can’t slow down
no i can’t

what a story, not a volume
just a tacky little ode in the corner of my mind
maybe preston in the winter
drinking in the night – the cold english night

but i can’t slow down
no i can’t slow down
no i can’t slow down
no i can’t

so find out who you are
use a train, take a car
you’ve got arms and you’ve got money
so find a finger and find out who you are

and there’s a figure, he’s so evil
with a black little eye and a pure white mind
and i’m so sorry when i see this
there’s a lesson in the blood
the cold english blood

but i can’t slow down
no i can’t slow down
no i can’t slow down
no i can’t slow down
no i can’t slow down
no i can’t slow down
slow down

no i can’t slow down
no i can’t slow down
no i can’t slow down
no i can’t slow down
no i can’t slow down
slow down
