lyrics

Skirting round the edge of something stealing the scene
and yes I may be smiling but it's not what it seems
Can you tell I've not been sleeping, I'm not even having fun in dreams

Days are feeling long but years are going so fast
and has my life begun yet, well I'm not sure it has
Then I saw her, turned out that we'd met before but memories didn't last

She said I'm Susie I'm a seamstress, I'm designed to blow your mind
I've had my eye on you since we went dancing last July
She grabbed my hand and squeezed it tight and took me to one side
And said this will be the best day of your life

Walking many miles through life with cuts on my feet
Looking for the thing that's gonna make me complete
Dangling like an equine carrot, tantalising view but never reached

Little voice inside my head with plenty to show
Why you always got to pick from fruit hanging low?
Likes of Susie never would sit comfortably in my portfolio

She said I'm Susie I'm a seamstress, I'm designed to blow your mind
I've had my eye on you since we went dancing last July
She grabbed my hand and squeezed it tight and took me to one side
And said this will be the best day of your life
