The Wombats

"Mosquito on the Wall"

[Verse 1]
I'm the mosquito on your wall and the doubt in your mind
The 17 missed calls and the key you can't find
Desperation does as desperation feels

[Verse 2]
I'm the alarm that doesn't sound and the cork in your wine
Your snapped heel on the town and all transactions declined
You were the one song that I could not perform

[Pre-Chorus]
You used to be my shelter from the storm

[Chorus]
And its cold out on the West Coast and it's lonely by the sea
And the unemployment's rising and the pigeons never leave
And you said we were forever as you held me to your chest
I was not your piece of clay, dear
I was your lump of lead

[Verse 3]
I'm the speed camera in the tree and the fine you can't pay
The spinning beach ball on your screen and the crap excuse when you're late
You were the only book to ever put me in a trance

[Pre-Chorus]
Yeah, you used to be my amber spyglass

[Chorus]
And it's cold now on the West Coast and it's lonely by the sea
And the unemployment's rising but we're still somewhat upbeat
And you said we were forever as you held me to your chest
But I was not your your piece of clay, dear
I was your lump of lead

[Bridge]
No slow dancing in the dark
No lifeless kisses in my car
No awkward chats to family
No Type A personalities
No same two albums on repeat
Endlessly rolling in the deep
Spending each Friday night at home
I have more fun when I'm alone
I have more fun when I'm alone

[Chorus]
And it's cold now on the West Coast, yeah, it's lonely by the sea
And the unemployment's rising and we're still off to Tenerife
Because we know we're not forever
We'll do no more than try our best
We'll never be their piece of clay, dear
We'll be their lump of lead
Lead
