lyrics

The first time that I saw you,
I could hardly open my eyes.
So pleased to meet you Charlotte,
On this inner circle ride.

And girl you'd better keep hold of your ticket,
They might check it, they might check it.
Or you'd get stuck on this platform with me,
I'm a single, you're my new discovery.

Eyes look left and eyes look right,
I'm sitting here with Michael.
We're going home, we were out last night,
Go round one more time, right cool.
See that girl, I know her name,
We've never met, but I know,
That we'll sit here and play eye-games,
'Til one of us has to go.

It's all in your head it's all in.
Your head knows better.
It's all in your head it's all in.
Your head knows better than this.
It's all in your head it's all in.
Your head knows better.
It's all in your head it's all in.

Darting eyes on the underground,
When you've written me off then you hear the sound,
Of my voice in your ears, and your conscience it cheers, pushing your forwards,
Encouraging to take that chance,
On this subterranean romance

Darting eyes on the underground,
When you woke up today you never thought you'd have found,
A smile matching yours, an escape from the tears, I haven't felt this in years,
And I'm so glad that you caught my glance,
Now this carriage is filled with our romance.

You got off.
You got off last stop.
You got off.
You got off at the last stop.

Won't you stay with me my west end darling?
And I will hold you close, I'll keep you warm all morning.
We can stay on this track with commuters and drunks in the back.
But when they all depart you'll leave me,
I know you've got no problem with breaking my heart.

Darting eyes on the underground,
When you've written me off then you hear the sound,
Of my voice in your ears, and your conscience it cheers, pushing your forwards,
Encouraging to take that chance,
On this subterranean romance

Darting eyes on the underground,
When you woke up today you never thought you'd have found,
A smile matching yours, an escape from the tears, I haven't felt this in years,
And I'm so glad that you caught my glance,
Now this carriage is filled with our romance.
