That's Where You're Wrong

Pussyfooting setting sun
Make a wish that weighs a tonne
There are no handles for you to hold
And no understanding where it goes

Jealously in technicolor
Fear by name than love by numbers
Streetlamps amber wanderlust
Powder in a blunderbuss

She looks as if she's blowing a kiss at me
And suddenly the sky is a scissor
Sitting on the floor with a tambourine
Crushing up a bundle of love

Don't take it so personally
You're not the only one
That time has got it in for honey
That's where you're wrong

All the old flames fastened on
Make a wish that weighs a tonne
There are no handles that you can hold
And no understanding where it goes

She looks as if she's blowing a kiss at me
And suddenly the sky is a scissor
Sitting on the floor with a tambourine
Crushing up a bundle of love

Don't take it so personally
You're not the only one
That time has got it in for honey
That's where you're wrong
That's where you're wrong
That's where you're wrong

Song facts

"It were all about having the words not get in the way of this one. That were one of the last ones we did when we were in London before Christmas. We did it in one day. It's a bit like '505' – that tune on the second album, where it's just two chords all the way through and we'd wanted to do a tune like that again for a while. There's loads of good examples of that like that LCD Soundsystem 'All My Friends' tune. It's just the two chords that build and build. But for a while I didn't have words for that – I was just singing 'Edge and Bono'. There's a demo of it somewhere where it's mostly 'Edge and Bono'. I dunno what else to say about that one. It were a bit of a late runner that one but it worked out." - Alex Turner
