Tears For Attention 
    (Difford/Tilbrook) 
      Tears for attention, heard all through the night 
      What is it you want from me, the last seconds of the fight 
      Kisses of corruption, tempt the spider from his web 
      Caught between the white sheets that have fallen from your bed 

      Heart for inspection, check the beat against the pain 
      The fight that came to break us up puts us back together again 
      Twitches of excitement give away my secret thoughts 
      Love was a book at bedtime, now that book has learned to talk 

      I get tears for attention 
      Kisses of corruption 
      With you 
      When Iím with you 

      Tears for attention dry upon a smiling face 
      Apologies and promises bring love back together again 
      Kisses of affection, lips that touch without a trace 
      The idea of conception puts the smile back on my face 

      I get tears for attention 
      Kisses of affection 
      And I do when Iím with you
