Lyrics

Well I take off my clothes with you
But I'm not naked underneath
I was born with trousers on
Just about like everyone

I'm so lonely I could melt
And be forgotten instantly
I love you very patiently
Honey, please don't finish me

Birds in perspex come alive
Come alive

Calliopes and xylophones
Play backwards in a broken stream
No one gives you anything
Unless, of course, you ask for it

Birds in perspex come alive
Come alive

Perspex Island, she's my girl
Away above the chimney tops
And when the sun goes down on her
So beautiful, my heart just stops

Birds in perspex come alive
Come alive
Come alive
Ahh ahh
Ahh ahh (birds in perspex come alive)
Ahh ahh (birds in perspex come alive)
Come alive (birds in perspex come alive)
Come alive (birds in perspex come alive)
