Ashley Chittock – Penny For My Thoughts
You seem so familiar
That's what I'm trying to say
Have I seen you here before?
Little lisp gave the game away
I'm afraid they'll turn the lights up
The predator becomes the prey
No time left to tell the truth now
I'm here and I'm gone today
A penny for my thoughts? Maybe not
But it's hard to resist, I feel like a millionaire
It's no-one else's fault after all
Is it just me
Or are you different in here?
I don't mean to offend you
But now you don't seem so sincere
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Is the big man right in my fear?
Because from my experience
This could easily be your career
I know you don't love me
I know you don't care
I know that it's not hard to see
There's nothing past the flair
You wanna know my thoughts?
Oh it's funny how that works
