Arctic Monkeys - Cornerstone

I thought I saw you in the battleship
But it was only a look a like
She was nothing but a vision trick
Under the warning light

She was close
Close enough to be your ghost
But my chances turned to toast
When I asked her if I could call her your name

I thought I saw you in the rusty hook
Huddled up in wicker chair
I wandered up for a closer look
And kissed who ever was sitting there

She was close
And she held me very tightly
Till I asked awfully politely
Please, can I call you her name?

And I elongated my lift home
Yeah, I let him go the long way `round
I smelt your scent on the seat belt
And kept my shortcuts to myself

I thought I saw you in the parrot`s beak
Messing with the smoke alarm
It was too loud for me to hear her speak
And she had a broken arm

It was close
So close that the walls were wet
And she wrote it out as in letraset
No, you can`t call me her name

Tell me where`s your hiding place?
I`m worried I`ll forget your face
And I`ve asked everyone
I`m beginning to think I imagined you all along

I elongated my lift home
Yeah, I let him go the long way `round
I smelt your scent on the seat belt
And kept my shortcuts to myself

I saw your sister in the cornerstone
On the phone to the middle man
When I saw that she was on her own
I thought she might understand

She was close
Well, you couldn`t get much closer
She said, "I`m really not supposed to but yes
You can call me anything you want"
