Kate Nash - Don't You Want To Share The Guilt

rate me


BBQ food is good<br>

You invite me out to eat it, I should<br>

Go, but I'm feeling kind of nervous<br>

And not quite myself<br>

So I'm running late on purpose<br>

And I know this won´t help<br>

How things have become between us<br>

But if I go you'll give me hell<br>

And that I don´t know how to fix it<br>

Is making me unwell, well<br>

I arrive at your house<br>

But you've just got up<br>

And you are wearing a towel<br>

And your eyes look dark<br>

I help to dry your body<br>

And I see your cut<br>

So I give you a plaster<br>

And we cover it up<br>

I say "Have you been crying?"<br>

And you say "Shut Up"<br>

So we sit in the garden<br>

And touch the grass<br>

With our hands<br>


The sun is going down now<br>

And it's been okay<br>

You tell me all these things you did<br>

While I was away<br>

And this worries me somewhat<br>


You say you're fine<br>


Can you hear it?<br>

Does it speak?<br>

Will I feel it?<br>

Will it hurt?<br>

Am I near it?<br>

I dont know<br>


I dont know how more people haven´t got mental health problems<br>

Thinking is one of those stressful things I've ever come across<br>

And not being able to articulate what I want to say drives me crazy<br>

I think I should try and read more books<br>

And learn some new words<br>

My sister used to read the dictionary<br>

I'm going to start with that<br>

I'd like to travel<br>

I want to see India and the pyramids<br>

A whale and that race with all the bicycles in France<br>

I'm not sure about rivers, they scare me<br>

But I love swimming, I'm good at it<br>

And when I swim I think about numbers<br>

And count the laps<br>

When I was younger I saw a house burnt down<br>

And I walked past it everyday for the next six years<br>

Derelict, black, chalky and dangerous<br>

I wondered if squatters lived there<br>

I'm still not sure but I know there were never any parties cuz it was shit<br>

After a while the council got round to tidying out the town<br>

Making it less offensive here and there<br>

They said it was an eyesore so they let tore it down<br>

Behind the house was a wall with a few bits of crappy graffiti and the word 'Cunt' written on it in giant letters<br>

And now I walk past that<br>


I like sitting in the park<br>

And I like walking through it<br>

I like taking my dogs there<br>

And friends, and I like being alone<br>

I like flowers and simplicity<br>

I like compassion and thoughtful gifts<br>

I like being able to shout<br>

But I wish I could be quiet<br>

When I'm quiet people think I'm sad<br>

And usually I am<br>


Sometimes when I'm at a busy train station<br>

Somewhere big with the noisy trains like King´s Cross<br>

I feel like putting down my bags and shouting things out because I've got something to say<br>

Don't you want to share the guilt?<br>

Don't think, just try and sleep<br>
