MARILLION


Quartz Lyrics

I can imagine nothing more tedious
Than trying to have fun with you again
Maybe it's just something in my mind
But I hate feeling like I'm trying all the time
It's a kind of lie when we pretend that we're still friends

I'm sure you're not exactly short of people to
Hang out and laugh at your jokes
Tell you you look great, you wouldn't want me around
Making it all feel forced"and put down

And every time I smile to wonder if I'm laughin' at you
And with every little grin you don't want to be wonderin'
Just exactly what it is I'm taking pleasure in

Although I always said
We were basically the same and all one
All one, it's so easy to persuade myself
I'm clockwork and you're quartz

I guess that irony
Will surely be
The death of me

And every time I smile do you wonder if I'm laughin' at you?
And with every little grin you don't want to be wonderin'

Although I always said
We were basically the same and all one
All one, it's so easy to persuade myself
I'm clockwork and you're quartz

You're only happy when you're oiled and jeweled
You're only happy when you wind me up and I know
You're so reliable it isn't true
And it's so easy for me to break down?

If I could jump a ride between the skin and silicon then
We could join hands and understand, Hallelujah
But I listen to the ticking, I guess we're worlds apart
It's so hard, so hard

I know there's no going back
And you know there's no going back

You're only happy when you're oiled and jeweled
You're only happy when you're oiled and jeweled
You're never happy

I need maintenance, I need patience
I'm not foolproof, I'm not waterproof
I'm not shockproof, bombproof, bulletproof
Fireproof, leak-proof, childproof, stain-proof, pressure-proof

I know I told myself
We're all basically the same and all one all one
You know, sometimes I just can't help myself
I'm clockwork and you're quartz
I'm clockwork and you're quartz

I know I never get the balance right
And turn up half an hour late night after night
And being totally dependable is so very commendable
Although you're never wrong
One of these days you're just gonna stop
