uptight lyrics – the cribs

uptight

tonight it seems unsure
if i’d made it up but then
we got nine hours or more
it makes no difference
cos that thought drifts right in
on a foehn wind
and tries to take me back
so i might have to go
oh no

no-one has to tell me
i know i have to let it go
but it’s so nice
being uptight
so sorry that i never will be
the kind of guy you’d like
but it’s so nice
being uptight

been treated like a sister
but here’s something she don’t know
in her bas*m*nt hangs a picture
that f*cked my heart up
a memory takes my hand
a real gentleman
in every way but one
that i don’t wanna know
oh no

no-one has to tell me
i know i have to let it go
but it’s so nice
being uptight
so sorry that i never will be
the kind of guy you’d like
but it’s alright
being uptight

got a name, all that remains
some day you know this back will break
we’re not a million miles away
some day you know this back will break
