about

Lost recording, found and tidied up. I think this is the oldest song in the French Defence recorded catalogue... from 1997 maybe?

lyrics

Is this real, or am I just dreaming?
You’re here with me, but is this a good thing?
It’s not what it seems, try to believe me
You are not in control of your senses
Try to realise

You’re too extreme when you’re defenceless
I wish we were clean instead of headfirst
Surely you’ve seen the previous cases
You are not in control of your senses
Try to realise

It wouldn’t work – you don’t want me
Don’t be absurd
It’s just the drink – you don’t want me
Later you’d think I’d taken advantage of you

What do you take me for?
You can’t be serious
Cause you’re swigging it back and you’re desperate for someone tonight
Please, please not tonight
Try to realise

It wouldn’t work – you don’t want me
Don’t be absurd
It’s just the drink – you don’t want me
Later you’d think I’d taken advantage of you

OK, I want you
But I can’t do this to you
Cause I know you’d just use me to fill up this hole that you’ve created...
