GRAHAM PARKER & THE RUMOUR lyrics - Paralyzed

GRAHAM PARKER & THE RUMOUR
"Paralyzed"

I'll wait for someone to tell me what I already know
And I'll wait for my grip to fail me then I'll just let it go
She's so hard to please so I just freeze
Nailed down by whispers, looks and sighs
And I'm so paralysed, I am so paralysed

I wait for you to disown me when you leave I won't look
I wait for someone to phone me with the phone off the hook
I get up to leave but I just deceive
You all the time pretending I'm
So paralysed I'm so paralysed
I'm so paralysed I'm just paralysed

I wait for mistakes to happen so I can't put them right
I wait for someone to latch on, but no-one's that bright

I say it can't be done, let's turn and run
Completely normal in my own eyes
To be so paralysed

Got the fear of falling from a great height
Can't open my parachute stiff with fright
I woke up naked in the high street
With lead boots on both feet

I was paralysed I'm so paralysed
I'm so paralysed

She's so hard to please so I just freeze
Nailed down by whispers, looks and sighs
And I'm so paralysed, I am so paralysed
Got me so paralysed, I'm so paralysed
I am so paralyse, I am so paralysed
