Suspended In Gaffa

Out in the garden, there's half of a heaven
And we're only bluffing
We're not ones for busting through walls
But they've told us unless we can prove
That we're doing it
We can't have it all
(And I want it all)

He's gonna wangle a way to get out of it
She's an excuse
And a witness who'll talk when he's called
But they've told us
Unless we can prove that we're doing it
We can't have it all
(And I want it all)
(And I want it all)
We can't have it all
(And I want it all)
(I caught a glimpse of a god, all shining and bright)

Suddenly me feet are feet of mud
It all goes slow-mo
I don't know why I'm crying
Am I suspended in gaffa?
Not until I'm ready for you
Not until I'm ready for you
Can I have it all?

I try to get nearer
But as it gets clearer
There's something appears in the way
It's a plank in me eye
With a camel who's trying to get through it
Am I doing it?
Can I have it all now?
(And I want it all)

I pull out the plank
And say thank you for yanking me
Back to the fact
That there's always something to distract
But sometimes it's hard
To know if I'm doing it right
Can I have it all now?
(And I want it all)
Can I have it all now?
(And I want it all)
Can I have it all?
(And I want it all)
I can't have it all
(We all have a dream... maybe)

Suddenly me feet are feet of mud
It all goes slow-mo
I don't know why I'm crying
Am I suspended in gaffa?
Not until I'm ready for you
Not until I'm ready for you
Can I have it all?

I won't open boxes that I am told not to
I'm not a Pandora
I'm much more like
That girl in the mirror
Between you and me
She don't stand a chance
Of getting anywhere at all
(And I want it all)
Not anywhere at all
(And I want it all)
No, not a thing
(And I want it all)
She can't have it all
(Mother, where are the angels? I'm scared of the changes)

Suddenly me feet are feet of mud
It all goes slow-mo
I don't know why I'm crying
Am I suspended in gaffa?
Not until I'm ready for you
Not until I'm ready for you
Can I have it all?
