Song Meaning
Verse 1
She cooks you sweet potato you don't like aubergine
She knows to boil the kettle when you hum bars from grease
She senses you are lonely but still she can't be sure
And so she stands and waits stands anticipating
Verse 2
How can she become the psychic that she longs to be to understand you
How can she become the psychic that she longs to be to understand you
Verse 3
He brushes thoroughly
He knows she likes fresh breath
He rushes to the station
He waits atop the steps
He's brought with him a mars bar
She will not buy nestle
And later he'll perform
A love-lorn serenade, a trade
Verse 4
How can he become the psychic that he longs to be to understand you
How can he become the psychic that he longs to be to understand you
Verse 5
So give her information to help her fill her holes
Give an ounce of power so he does not feel controlled
Help her to acknowledge the pain that you are in
Give to him a glimpse of that beneath your skin
Verse 6
Now my inner dialogue is heaving with detest
I am a martyr and a victim and I need to be caressed
I hate that you negate me, I'm a ghost at beck and call
I'm failing and placating, berate myself for staying
Verse 7
I'm a fool
I'm a fool
Verse 8
He greets his stranger meekly a thing that she accepts
She sees him waiting often with chocolate on the steps
He senses she is lonely she's glad they finally met
They take each other's hands walk into the sunset
Verse 9
(Do you like sweet potato?)
