Karaoke Plays - Maximo Park

You write a list of things to do
To occupy your time that you could use
But in my mind it's never final
And when you sleep I try not to wake you as I leave

Oh, I waited up for you
But you didn't come back home
Oh, I waited up for you
Couldn't you come back home?

If someone gets run down
Karaoke plays somewhere in the background
But there is no explanation
What makes a grown man cry
Karaoke plays
If someone gets run down

We never did want the dawn to break
Decided from the sheets in which we laid
You know I changed my ways forever
The North Sea crashes through your dreams as I leave

Oh, I waited up for you
But you didn't come back home
Oh, I waited up for you
Couldn't you come back home?

If someone gets run down
Karaoke plays somewhere in the background
But there is no explanation
What makes a grown man cry
Karaoke plays
If someone gets run down

I came home, there were radio waves
I heard voices through the radio waves
I came home, you were nowhere to be found
The lights were on and the radio played
I came home, there were radio waves
A children's cry out through the radio waves
Every night we've got so much to say
I wanna hear all the things you did today

If someone gets run down
Karaoke plays somewhere in the background
But there is no explanation
What makes a grown man cry
Karaoke plays
If someone gets run down
