Elbow lyrics : "starlings"

How dare the Premier
Ignore my invitations?
He'll have to go

So, too, the bunch
He luncheons with
It's second

On my list
Of things to do

At the top
I'm stopping by
Your place of work

And acting like
I haven't dreamed
Of you and I

And marriage
In an orange grove
You are the only thing

In any room
You're ever in
I'm stubborn

Selfish and too old

I sat you down

And told you how
The truest love
That's ever found

Is for oneself
You pulled
Apart my theory

With a weary
And disinterested sigh

So yes I guess
I'm asking you
To back a horse

That's good for glue
And nothing else
But find a man

That's truer than
Find a man
That needs you

More than I

Sit with me a while

And let me
Listen to you
Talk about

Your dreams
And your obsessions
I'll be quiet

And confessional
The violets
Explode inside me

When I meet your eyes
Then I'm spinning
And I'm diving

Like a cloud
Of starlings

Is this love?
