Karaoke Plays- Maximo Park

You write a list of things to do

To occupy the time that you could use

But in my mind it's never final

And when you sleep I try not to wake you as I leave



Oh, I waited up for you

But you didn't come back home

Oh, I waited up for you

Couldn't you come back home?



If someone gets run down

Karaoke plays somewhere in the background

But there is no explanation

What makes a grown man cry

Karaoke plays

If someone gets run down



We never did want the dawn to break

Decided from the sheets in which we laid

You know I changed my ways forever

The North Sea crashes through your dreams as I leave



Oh, I waited up for you

But you didn't come back home

Oh, I waited up for you

Couldn't you come back home?



If someone gets run down

Karaoke plays somewhere in the background

But there is no explanation

What makes a grown man cry

Karaoke plays

If someone gets run down



I came home, there were radio waves

I heard voices through the radio waves

I came home, you were nowhere to be found

The lights were on and the radio played

I came home, there were radio waves

A children's choire through the radio waves

Every night we've got so much to say

I wanna hear all the things you did today



If someone gets run down

Karaoke plays somewhere in the background

But there is no explanation

What makes a grown man cry

Karaoke plays
