style council – long hot summer lyrics


i play out my role
why i’ve even been out walking
they tell me that it helps
but i know when i’m beaten
all those lonely films
and all those lonely parties
but now the feeling is off-screen
an’ the tears for real not acted, anymore

i’m all mixed up inside
i want to run but i can’t hide
and however much we try
we can’t escape the truth and the fact is

don’t matter what i do
it don’t matter what i do
don’t matter what i do
don’t matter what i do
don’t matter what i do
’cause i end up hurting you

one more covered sigh
and one more glance you know means goodbye
can’t you see that’s why
we’re dashing ourselves against the rocks of a lifetime

(in my mind different voices call)
what once was pleasure now’s pain for us all
(in my heart only shadows fall)
i once stood proud now i feel so small
(i don’t know whether to laugh or cry)
the long hot summer just p-ssed me by
