Central Reservation

(Beth Orton)

Lyrics

Running down the central reservation
Last night's red dress
And I can still smell you on my fingers
And taste you on my breath

Stepping through brilliant shades
All the colour you bring
This time, this time this time
Is whatever I want it to mean

If this is where memories are made
I'm Gonna like what I see
Everything I ever took for granted
I'm gonna let it be

I step through every shade
All the colour you bring
This time this time this time
Is whatever I want it to mean

And everything and nothing is
 As sacred as we want it to be
 When its real make it real
Compared to what

 Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

It's like living in the middle of the ocean
With no future no past
And everything that's good about now
Might just glide right past

I'm stepping through brilliant shades
All the colour you bring
This time this time this time
Is fine just as it is

And everything is sacred here
And nothing is as sacred as we want it to be
When its real
Compared to what

 Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh oh oh oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
 Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Bada ba bada ba bada ba ba bada ba ba bada ba badaba

The Then Again Version Lyrics

Running down the central reservation
Last night's red dress
And I can still smell you on my fingers
And taste you on my breath

Stepping through brilliant shades
All the colour you bring
This time this time this time
Is fine just as it is

Today is whatever I want it to mean
Today is whatever I want it to mean

Is this is where memories are made
Well dream do come true
Everything I ever took for granted
I wanna see it through

I step through every shade
Any colour you bring
This time this time this time
Is fine just as it is

Today is whatever I want it to mean
Today is whatever I want it to mean
(whatever I want it to mean)
(whatever I want it to mean)

It's like
It's like
It's like living in the middle of the ocean
With no future no past
And everything that's good right now well
I don't wish for it to last

I'll step through brilliant shades
Every colour you bring
This time this time this time
Is fine just as it is

And today is whatever I want it to mean
Today is whatever I want it to mean
Today today is whatever I want it to mean
Today is whatever I want it to mean

 Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
