When you're arguing with your partner and he hasn't got a clue what it's all about. This is what's going on in his head...


There will come a moment when
You can kick me out and then
We can both agree that we are done
Handing me my coat and hat
You say now that’s where we’re at
But I think it’s you jumping the gun

Right now
Is not the time to settle scores
Just wait
Cos I know you will have second thoughts
It’s true
Maybe we’ve been here once or twice
You know
Don’t say I’m wrong now, that won’t make it right

So I have a drink or two
I always come back home to you
Nearly always, most times if not some
And so what if I take some cash
If any’s left I put it back
So I’d say it’s you jumping the gun

Get this in your head and we can go and have a laugh
The way to find enlightenment is down a tempting path
Never mind whatever’s out there hanging round for you
It’ll still be there when you eventually come to

Here’s your last chance, let me speak
Bring my bag in off the street
If there’s a time to talk then this one
Think how boring life can be
With people more like you than me
Can’t you see it’s you jumping the gun
