Lyrics

When I first saw you Something stirred within me You were standing sultry in the rain If I could've held you I would've held you Rip it up and start again Rip it up and start again Rip it up and start again I hope to God you're not as dumb as you make out I hope to God I hope to God And I hope to God I'm not as numb as you make out I hope to God I hope to God And when I next saw you My heart reached out for you My arms stuck like glue to my sides If I could've held you I would've held you But I'd choke rather than swallow my pride Rip it up and start again Rip it up and start again Rip it up and start again I hope to God you're not as dumb as you make out I hope to God I hope to God And I hope to God I'm not as numb as you make out I hope to God I hope to God And there were times I'd take my pen And feel obliged to start again I do profess That there are things in life That one can't quite express You know me, I'm acting dumb-dumb You know this scene is very humdrum And my favorite song's entitled "Boredom" Rip it up and start again I said rip it up and start again I said rip it up and rip it up and rip it up and rip it up Rip it up and start again
