Punchline

by Étienne Daho

[Verse 1]
I miss you more than I have so far, tonight
You weren't joking when you said you'd left nothing behind
Now I'm wandering round the flat and smoking where I like
It's never been as empty as it is tonight, and it's huge
Now I'm alone between it's walls
Hard to believe we used to think that it was too small

[Pre-Chorus]
I did what I thought had to do
Protect you, did my best to keep my beasts at bay
Too late I realised, that you'd never played your whole hand in
Well you delivered on my bluff and ran straight back to him

[Chorus]
Hard to believe
The joke was always on me
Your punch line was so low
You know just how to hit them home

[Verse 2]
I miss you more than I have so far, tonight
I can't see it out cause you're fogging up my mind
It was far too hard to sleep so I took myself outside
To screw you out on a summers night
The odds were good, but there's no leaving you behind
So I learned patience and placed all my bets on time

[Pre-Chorus]
I did what I thought had to do
Protect you, did my best to keep my beasts at bay
Too late I realised, that you'd never played your whole hand in
Well you delivered on my bluff and ran straight back to him

[Chorus]
Hard to believe
The joke was always on me
Your punch line was so low
You know just how to hit them home
You know just how to hit them home

[Chorus]
Hard to believe
The joke was always on me
Your punch line was so low
You know just how to hit them home
You know just how to hit them home
