lyrics

If I
Were a Detective
I would be happier
Than I am now

‘Cause I
Would not be expected
To just take this lying down

I’ll do what I can
And my job would be my life
I’ll do what I can
But I could not keep my wife

‘Cause she left some time ago.

I really thought my life was homing in on
Some kind of resolution
Some kind of bold, stark solution
A neat Baker Street end
With a Paul Auster bend
Or a plausible lie
That I could tell my friends

Oh I think I could be
The one happy
Detective
‘Cause I would search for everyone else

I'd do what I can
And my job would be my life
I'll do what I can
But I never get it right

‘Cause she left some time ago.

I do what I can
And my job would be my life
I do what I can
But I never get it right

‘Cause she left some time ago
And she's with a better man
Than me.
