stragglers moon lyrics – fratellis

she can’t help it, the girl can’t help it
she can’t help it, the girl can’t help it
she can’t help it, the girl can’t help it
she can’t help it, the girl can’t help it

you can find her scratching around in the dark
just another candle chasing a spark
you can find her screaming along with the ghosts
reminds you she’s the one that you needed the most

and then you’re out there on your own again
no one believes you when you lie
i still see all the old girls now and then
catching the moonlight as they cry

she can’t help it, the girl can’t help it
she can’t help it, the girl can’t help it
she can’t help it, the girl can’t help it
she can’t help it, the girl can’t help it

the wrong way round’s the right way up when she calls
you can laugh but it wont mean nothing at all
yes you can find her scratching away in her room
stumbling ’round by the light of the stragglers moon

and then you’re out there digging holes again
six million people can’t be wrong
someday you’ll buy the perfect song and then
you can get back where you belong

and then you’re out there on your own again
no one believes you when you lie
i still see all the old girls now and then
catching the moonlight when they cry
