"Based on a Two Storey".
The tale of transition between two relationships, told from the perspectives of three people involved, as well as one who probably shouldn't have been involved.

Words and music by Adam Scholey.

Oh, she's all alone,
She's not the type of girl that looks right stood on her own,
See, he's still backstage,
Wonder how hard pushed I would be to bring about change?

She looks faithful and loyal,
But given a few weeks we can all lead her off the boil,
I'll just go for this 'cos life's too short,
And he'll stop crying himself to sleep in a few years I would've thought,

'Cos sometimes just one night is all this life can take,
To show exactly how severe were our mistakes,
People take advantage like at Wimbledon,
Except the ball was in her court and I wasn't having much fun,

Oh, she's not satisfied,
She never seems happy no matter how the boy tries,
What fun to help her shake things up,
Well look who just strolled over,
Tonight we might be in luck,

Well hi, how are you?
Have you two just met?
She seems to like your attention but she's already taken don't forget,
You need a game plan, a guaranteed win,
Here I'll help out, pass me your phone and I'll put her name and number in,

'Cos once the cows come home his script seems awful stale,
From all the times the light of day has seen it sail,
Stock up on mops and sick-buckets and cliché towels,
'Cos while she keeps on hearing the right words,
He's wearing holes in all of his vowels,

Oh, you've turned away,
From everything we've built the last 359 days,
And I just can't find the words,
To show you how much I care despite this poorly-written verse,

I don't think I hurt you, not that I know of,
Ok I may not be flawless but perfection only lies with God,
I always did my best to take away your pain,

And I'd have promised you the Earth if Venus hadn't have complained,

'Cos it's designed so we grow ever more worldly,
With every brand new stitch on life's rich tapestry,
Eventually gradients of each new learning curve,
Are so diminutive we start to represent using single-figure surds,

And my mind sometimes throws me back to July,
With beachy drives and chalets when our fireworks lit the sky,
And when Summer ended things were still sublime,
You had the world, we shared your bed and I'd never felt so alive,
Until it died,
I died inside,

I know that we would never work,
I couldn't cope with your demands,
But if you ever needed direction,
I would guide you by the hand,
I know that we would never work,
I'm just too little of a thrill,
But if you ever need a shoulder,
I'm two minutes down the hill.
