Lyrics

SUIT OF ARMOUR

I would have sat there for a long time tugging my hem down to my knees
Pressing my wine glass to my lips 'til I got a little tipsy.
Ah, but that's just me.

Clever you, you wore a suit of armour, silly me, a damsel in this dress
You were chivalry at cocktails, I was misery in high heels
The things we do for our friends

Clever you, you wear a suit of armour. It gets you through the battles of the day
Decorated warrior, hidden dreamer, waiting for something to take you away


Take you away (Take you, take you away.)
Away (Take you, take you away)
Take you away. (Take you, take you away.)
Away. (Take you, take you away.)
Take you away. Away. (Away)

You can tie on a mean Windsor, I wave a thick mascara wand
We will put our best feet forward, win them with our smiles, then we're gone, gone, gone

Clever you, you wear a suit of armour It gets you through the battles of the day
Decorated warrior, hidden dreamer, waiting for something to take you away

Take you away (Take you, take you away.)
Away (Take you, take you away)
Take you away. (Take you, take you away.)
Away. (Take you, take you away.)
Take you away. Away. (Away)

Take you away (Take you, take you away.)
Away (Take you, take you away)
Take you away. (Take you, take you away.)
Away. (Take you, take you away.)
Take you away. Away. (Away)

I would have sat there for a long time.
