Alex Turner – Piledriver Waltz

I etched a face of a stopwatch
On the back of a raindrop
And did a swap for the sand in an hourglass

I heard an unhappy ending
It sort of sounds like you leaving
I heard the piledriver waltz
It woke me up this morning

You look like you’ve been for breakfast
At the heartbreak hotel
And sat in the back booth
By the pamphlets and the literature
On how to lose
Your waitress was miserable
And so was your food
If you’re gonna try and walk on water
Make sure you wear your comfortable shoes

Mystery’s flashing amber
Go green when you answer
But the red on the rest of the questionnaire
Never changes

I heard the news that you’re planning
To shoot me out of a cannon
I heard the piledriver waltz
It woke me up this morning

You look like you’ve been for breakfast
At the heartbreak hotel
And sat in the back booth
By the pamphlets and the literature
On how to lose
Your waitress was miserable
And so was your food
If you’re gonna try and walk on water
Make sure you wear your comfortable shoes

Ohh, piledriver

IF YOU MOTHER OR FATHER IS STILL ALIVE, PLEASE SAY I LOVE YOU TO THEM. BECAUSE WHEN THEY ARE NO MORE AROUND, YOU WILL HAVE MISSED THE CHANCE. I MISS IT WITH MY DAD. REALLY REGRET IT NOW. I WAIT FOR THE DAY I CAN MEET HIM IN HEAVEN AND TO HOLD HIS HAND AND TO SAY, “I LOVE YOU DAD”.
