Written in February 2011.

Recorded in Hillingdon in March 2011.


I don't want to be your fantasy,
I want to be your beautiful reality.
There's no pretence on this side of the fence,
There's pretty much transparency - to me it makes sense.
I want no eggshells in my path,
I'm simply not that keen on eggy aftermath.
Let's keep it straight, right from the start.
I want it genuine if it involves my heart.
Don't waste my time and make my brown eyes blue.

Romance should definitely play a part
And a wild imagination ain't a poisoned dart
But a pedestal is uncomfortable,
Impractical, immovable - you're likely to fall.
I'm often great, this much is true
But I'm certainly not perfect and n-neither are you.
If you take on board the fact I'm flawed
There'll be firmer foundations for me to be adored.
I recommend a realistic view.

I'm not always going to make you burst with joy
And you certainly won't ever be the ultimate boy -
There'll be tears and shouts and falling outs
And on more than one occasion we will surely have doubts,
But this certainly doesn't mean we've somehow failed a test.
Be prepared for dodgy patches if you're going to invest.
An open mind is best I find
So expect a few surprises once you're Valentined
And if it's worth it we will make it through.

So let's give it a go, you never know,
This might be quite fantastic, get your baggage in tow.
You show me yours I'll show you mine
And maybe some time later we'll be doing fine.
If you've fallen for the me that's me,
And not the someone I'm somehow supposed to be,
What we share might get us there
And maybe with our flaws we'll make the perfect pair
And p'raps our true love will be true.
Don't waste my time and make my brown eyes blue.
I recommend a realistic view
And if it's worth it we will make it through.
