lyrics

You like the books that I've read and talking about what they meant
You wear the colours I like, in the fabrics and fashions all twirling in the night

Should I like you now?
Given half a chance, I'd watch you dance

You like that band I know, mate's the guitarist, got tickets to the show
See you there, the one that stares

You've heard of that director before, liked his last work, can't wait for more
Yeah, we must be a match
But it don't work like that

Yeah, I think we met long ago, I'm trying to remember, tell me more
Yeah, it's all coming back, you can call me Jack
