out of my league
(marr, sumner)



i’m always late but i caught you in time

to escape from the scene of the crime

louder than cymbals, all out of rhyme

i give up ’cause i don’t know the time



i can’t decide, won’t you rescue my pride

tell me the truth

i have a picture of you

you have a picture of me



we could steal away in the night

or catch the earliest flight

we’ve fallen in, so let’s swim



you’re out of my league

but i’m depending on you

you’re all that i need

so why don’t you say that it’s true



you’re out of my league

but i’m depending on you

you’re all that i need

so why can’t you say that it’s true



you’re out of my league



like a picture hung on a wall

not a word to speak, lost for a cause

you could give me so many things

but without your love, all of it stinks



my only crime is the state of my mind

on loan to you

i have a picture of you

you have a picture of me



we could steal away in the night

or catch the very first flight

we’ve fallen in, so let’s swim



you’re out of my league

but i’m depending on you

you’re all that i need

so why don’t you say that it’s true



you’re out of my league

but i’m depending on you

you’re all that i need

so why can’t you say that it’s true

comment
this jaunty, bittersweet song has a lovely bridge and several beautiful instrumental passages, its mellifluous piano framed inside a munificent sea of synths. although somewhat lightweight and inconsequential, judging by the performance of it on later with jools holland it probably would have come into its own as a live song. marr and sumner thought highly enough of it to include it on the best of in 2006.
