lyrics

YOU WERE A CARROT
YOU WERE A TIGER
I WASN’T VERY GOOD TO YOU
ITS SOMETHING THAT I STRUGGLE WITH
I CARRY YOU AROUND
LOCKED INSIDE MY HEART
COVERED IN CHOCOLATE
THE ONE THE ONLY GARBOTT

I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WELL ENOUGH
BUT WHEN I THOUGHT OF YOU
IT WAS ONLY LOVE
SING A SAD SONG WHEN YOU’RE GONE
I’LL CARRY YOUR COFFIN AND PRETEND TO BE STRONG

YOU WERE LIKE A CAT
CURLED UP ON LAP
IF I WASN’T SO MESSED UP
I MIGHT HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT
ONLY A FEW NIGHTS
BUT ENOUGH TO LAST A LIFETIME
ENOUGH TO LEAVE A HOLE
IN MY SOUL WHERE YOU USED TO GO

I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WELL ENOUGH
BUT WHEN I THOUGHT OF YOU
IT WAS ONLY LOVE
SING A SAD SONG WHEN YOU’RE GONE
I’LL CARRY YOUR COFFIN AND PRETEND TO BE STRONG

IF YOU WERE MINE
AND I’D LOST YOU DOWN THE LINE
I DON’T THINK I COULD LIVE
CAUSE LIVINGS HARD ENOUGH
I WISH I’D SEEN YOU
BEFORE YOU HAD TO GO
OH YOU LEFT WITH SO MANY THINGS UNSAID

I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WELL ENOUGH
BUT WHEN I THOUGHT OF YOU
IT WAS ONLY LOVE
SING A SAD SONG WHEN YOU’RE GONE
I’LL CARRY YOUR COFFIN AND PRETEND TO BE STRONG
