I'm Living In a Cupboard

 

Well, I'm living in a cupboard, and I can't get through
  The lines are down and I really need to talk with you
  Can you tell me to do
  'Cos I'm living in a cupboard and the lights are low
  I'm expecting salvation, can you tell me please when I'm free to go?
  I really need to know
    The air has a smell of Uranium
    There's a camera in my cranium
    When you're living in a cupboard
    There's just no room to grow

  Well I'm living on a train, 'cos I can't take the pain
  I'm moving on again, I just want to get close to you
  Don't say we are through
  I'm living on a train, lost my ticket again
  Now I'm out in the rain, but I never lost sight of you
  Don't you know, my feelings are true
    The Kokomo hum is rising
    There's a B52 coming over the horizon
    When you're living on a train
    The sky's so big and blue

      All I wanted was to settle down in a cottage by the sea...
      Now the kids want ferrets and cats and rats
      But we're living in a lamppost
      And all we're allowed in a broken-down TV...

  Well I'm living in a test tube, growing a beak
  I just hope my neighbour doesn't turn out to be some kind of freak
  'Cos we're living cheek to cheek
  We'll I'm living in a test tube, stuck in the mould
  My fingers are tiny, I hope I don't die before I'm three weeks old
  I'm not very bold
    I know my courage will rise again
    When I get out of this liquid nitrogen
    When you're living in a test tube
    You learn to do as you are told

  Now I'm living in a song, and it's not very long
  But it's broad at the shoulders and it's lonely eye is focused on you
  And all that you do
  I'm living in your song, and you're never alone
  I'm coming back home, I'm so glad I made it through
  Maybe you are too
    I know the world will all make perfect sense
    When we realise were living in a big blue tent
    But now were living in a song
    And I hope it doesn't take very long...

      All I wanted was to settle down in a cottage by the sea...
      Now the kids want ferrets and cats and rats
      But we're living in a lamppost
      And all we're allowed is a broken-down TV...
