Arctic Monkeys Despair In The Departure Lounge Lyrics

He’s pining for her

In a people carrier

There might be buildings and pretty things to see like that

But architecture won’t do

Although it might say a lot about the city or town

I don’t care what they’ve got keep on turning them down

It don’t say the funny things she does

Don’t even try and cheer him up, because

It just won’t happen

He’s got the feeling again

This time on the aeroplane

There might be tellys in the back of the seats in front

But Rodney and Del won’t do

Although it might take your mind off the aches and the pains

Laugh when he falls through the bar

But you’re feeling the same

‘Cause she isn’t there to hold your hand

She won’t be waiting for you when you land

It feels like she’s just nowhere near

You could well be out on your ear

This thought comes closely followed by the fear

And the thought of it

Makes you feel a bit

Ill

Yesterday I saw a girl

Who looked like someone you might knock about with

And almost shouted

And then reality kicked in within us

It seems as we become the winners

You lose a bit of summat

And half wonder if you won it at all

And don’t say ‘owt ’cause you’ve got no idea

And she’s still nowhere near

And the thought comes closely followed by the fear

And the thought of it

Makes you feel a bit

…Ill

Despair in the departure lounge

It’s one and they’ll still be around at three

No signal and low battery

What’s happened to me
