Lyrics

Narcissus is a long boy...

I never set foot in the real world
Never talked to a real girl
Don't pick flowers for real girls,
Don't pick flowers for real women too

Never seen a dead body
Bodies all look alive to me
When they're made out of stone
And they're standing alone, in the sea

Narcissus is a long boy
Hum-a-day, hum-a-day, hum-a-day 

And when I tell you I love you
It means I love what you do to me
And to my imagination
At the real heart of me

Narcissus is a long boy
Hum-a-day, hum-a-day, hum-a-day

In the mirror you're always there
Strong and elegant in the air
In your element, in the air
Like an elephant hanging there for you
To come through

Narcissus is a long boy

Drinking wine
Drinking wine in a pub in Holland Park till it gets dark and then where do you go?
Drinking wine in a pub in Holland Park till it gets dark and then, what do you know?
Drinking wine white wine by yourself
Till you get there and then
Where do you go? Oh

Narcissus is a long boy yeah
Long boy, yeah
Narcissus is a long boy yeah
