the rat within the grain lyrics – damien rice

this would not have happened
if i hadn’t missed my plane
i’ve would have been there when they told you
i’m the rat within the grain

within this big misunderstanding now
i’m being misunderstood
i think’in someones trying to f*ck with me
and set fire to my wood

i wouldn’t want you to want
to be wanted by me
i wouldn’t want you to worry
you’d be drowned within my sea
i only wanted to be wonderful
and wonderful is true
in truth i only really wanted
to be wanted by you

it’s a stupid situation now
where everything goes wrong
if you can’t tell if i am lying
then you do not belong

in my bed
go rest your head
upon the bones of a bigger man
he can cover you with rock wool
and you can close up like a clam

i wouldn’t want you to want
to be wanted by me
i wouldn’t want you to worry
you’d be drowned within my sea

i only wanted to be wonderful
and wonderful is true
in truth i only really wanted
to be wanted by you

so go play with your piano
write a mediocre song
out the sh*ll of mediocrity
and pretend there’s nothing wrong

i never thought you where a chicken sh*t
i never thought of you at all
until you asked me to be part of it
now you’re showing me your wall

i wouldn’t want you to want
to be wanted by me
i wouldn’t want you to worry
you’d be drowned within my sea

i only wanted to be wonderful
and wonderful is true
in truth i only really wanted
to be wanted by you

la la la la ……………

in truth i only really wanted
to be wanted by you
