When the Note of the Engine Changes (Sam Whimpenny)

Oh no
Will you forget that I said it
I’ve given the game away
Well I can read in those great green eyes
You’re not shocked what I say

It may be January sunshine
It could well be alcohol
It could be the way you look at me

But when the note of the engine changes
It’s never subtle I know
And when the note of the engine changes
We are in trouble
At least I hope so

You smile
But you’re not at all certain
I know I’m not number one
Yet
It’s not commitment I’m after now
Just a chance to give you some love
I may sound slightly romantic
I don’t really mean it that way
It’s just unstable semantics
Words can mean anything, they say

But when the note of the engine changes
It’s never subtle I know
And when the note of the engine changes
We are in trouble
At least I hope so

I had to know
Which way the flags would blow
And yes I know
We’re gonna make it somehow you can take it from me that

When the note of the engine changes
It’s never subtle I know
And when the note of the engine changes
We are in trouble
At least I hope so
