Kate Nash - Early Christmas Present

How could you let her touch you
In a place you didn't want touched
How could you let her get so close to you
That she could kiss your neck
And kiss it gently
And kiss it gently
And kiss it gently

How could you take her number from her
When you met her in that bar
How could you offer her a drink
And then the front seat of your car
And kiss her gently
And kiss her gently
And kiss her hard

How could you lie to me right to my face?
How could your best friend's ex-girlfriend's
Younger sister's mate, know before I did?
Before I did
Before I did

How could you string me along for so long
For just over eleven months
How could I be so stupid and sublime
You know I think I had a hunch
About this anyway
About this whole thing
About this girl

I thought that it was just a phase
You were so distant and so cold
I thought that it was just your age
And the fear of getting old
You acted different
You were so different
You were impatient

And you lied to me right to my face
And your best friend's ex-girlfriend's
Younger sister's mate, knew before I did
Before I did
Before I did

'Cause if you run into the eye of the storm
To get round the back
You better hit the floor
'Cause screaming
No, I can't take it
I can't take it
I can't take it anymore
'Til your eyes and your mouth is sore
Doesn't help anyone
Doesn't do anything
But you'd do something else
If you only could

And I wish I could grow up
Wish I could be well behaved
But every time I look him in the eye
I send him to the grave
And that pretty, pretty girl
With her nice neat lips
With your eyes on her chest
And your hands on her hips

This itch, this burn
This pain, this strain
Dealing, turned out
That we don't need to
Help it go away
So that's what
Leaving me
The gift you gave him

I can't take it
I can't take it
I can't take it anymore
I can't take it anymore
I can't take it anymore
I can't take it anymore
I can't take it anymore
I can't take it anymore
I can't take it anymore
I can't take it anymore

How could you let her touch you In a place you didn't want touched? How could you let her get so close to you That she could kiss your neck And kiss it gently And kiss it gently And kiss it gently? How could you take her number from her When you met her in that bar? How could you offer her a drink And then the front seat of your car And kiss her gently And kiss her gently And kiss her hard? How could you lie to me right to my face? How could your best friend's ex-girlfriend's Younger sister's mate, know before I did? Before I did Before I did? How could you string me along for so long For just over eleven months? How could I be so stupid and so blind? You know I think I had a hunch About this anyway About this whole thing About this girl I thought that it was just a phase You were so distant and so cold I thought that it was just your age And the fear of getting old You acted different You were so different You were impatient And you lied to me right to my face And your best friend's ex-girlfriend's Younger sister's mate, knew before I did Before I did Before I did Cause if you run into the eye of the storm Take it round the back...you better hit the floor Cause screaming NO! I can't take it, I can't take it I can't take it anymore till your eyes and your mouth is sore Doesn't help anyone, doesn't do any good But you'd do something else if you only could And I wish I could grow up, wish I could be well behaved But every time I look you in the eye I send you to the grave And that pretty pretty girl, with her nice sweet lips With your eyes on her chest and your hands on her hips This itch, this burn, this pain this draining feeling Turns out needs a cream to help it go away So thanks for leaving me the gift you gave! And NO! I can't take it I can't take it I can't take it anymore I can't take it I can't take it I can't take it anymore I can't take it I can't take it I can't take it anymore I can't take it I can't take it I can't take it anymore
