If there’s a hitch you’ll work it out
The light is what you’re all about
The day is bright, and the
glare makes my eyes sore,
headache and what’s more,
I don’t know which way to go

So you’re a strange Pygmalion
And just a bit Australian
Seems criminal, call the
CIA hotline
Cuz everything’s not fine
And I don’t know which way to go…

In the night, your worship lies,
in the tongues of blinded eyes

It’s enough that your trace
doesn’t light my way,
but don’t you give me static
or I’ll lock you in the attic

So now’s the night’s receding time
And all my fears feel justified
The light of day, get you
out of my head, girl
the night was a fine world
don’t show me which way to go

In the night your worship lies,
far from light and prying eyes,
so hear my song as you decide

Well it’s enough that your trace
doesn’t blind my way
And if I seem lost,
well, I’m glad you came
And I don’t know why
but the draw remains

But don’t you give me static
my response is automatic
if you’re in it to fan it, girl,
I will lock you in the attic
