Arctic Monkeys Lyrics

7. Cornerstone



Thought I saw you in the battleship 
but it was only a look a like 
She was nothing but a vision trick 
Under the warning light 
She was close, close enough to be your ghost 
But my chances turned to toast 
When I asked her if I could call her your name 

I thought I saw you in the rusty hook 
Huddled up in wicker chair 
I wandered up for a closer look 
And kissed who ever was sitting there 

She was close, and she held me very tightly 
Till I asked awfully politely, please 
Can I call you her name 

And I elongated my lift home, 
Yeah I let him go the long way round 
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt 
And kept my shortcuts to myself 

I thought I saw you in the parrots beak 
Messing with the smoke alarm 
It was too loud for me to hear her speak 
And she had a broken arm 

It was close, so close that the walls were wet 
And she wrote it out in letraset 
No you can't call me her name 

Tell me where's your hiding place 
I'm worried I'll forget your face 
And I've asked everyone 
And I'm beginning to think I imagined you all along 

I elongated my lift home 
Yeah I let him go the long way round 
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt 
And kept my shortcuts to myself 

I saw your sister in the cornerstone 
On the phone to the middle man 
When I saw that she was on her own 
I thought she might understand 
She was close, well you couldn't get much closer 
She said I'm really not supposed to but yes, 
You can call me anything you want
