Bloc Party. Mercury

My mercury’s in retrograde

This is not the time, the time to start a new love

This is not the time, the time to sign a lease

Try not to worry about whats forgotten

Try not to worry about whats been missed

Scars on shins and scars on my knuckles

Today I woke up in a basketball court

Jonjo’s in Sydney and he aint returning

Im sitting in soho trying to stay drunk

In any bar in the world

From Silverlake to Williamsburg

You could pick another stranger

And fall in love

My mercury’s in retrograde

This is not the time, the tie to start a new love

This is not the time, the time to sign a lease

Try not to worry about whats forgotten

Try not to worry about whats been missed

Bleeding gums and veins protruding

You’re starting to hate all of your clothes

Neumayrs in LA and she aint returning

Im sleeping with people I don’t even like

My mercury’s in retrograde

When I say you last night

I wanted to say, run away with me

Away from the cynics

That this could be the start of

Something truly real…

But all that I could say was “hey”

My mercury’s in retrograde
