The Streets release new single You Are Not The Voice In Your Head (with lyrics)

The Streets have released new single You Are Not The Voice In Your Head ahead of their UK and Ireland tour next month.

The track has direct similarities to one of Skinner’s best, 2004’s Could Well Be In and features trademark conversational lyrics which we simply had to transcribe.

Read the lyrics and listen to the track here:

I look at my watch for the time this second, but then at my phone to confirm its true
She comes back in from the bathroom smelling, the same as before but I guess a bit new

“There’s no such thing as a joke” she says, “there’s only jest with the truth”
But she accepts the apology I never said, and I get on with attempting to be cute

Her eyes look photo-shopped catch light wet
Can see the reflection back behind my head

Every time her eyes closed I dreamed a whole thread, but reality was better than the truth
I said, “I hope girls will start to instead, because now men can’t try the first move”

I knew it wasn’t clever, it was wrong saying out
Her eyes rolled like a fruit machine not paying out

She said, “Don’t be that guy when we’ve only just met, don’t try the trousers of what doesn’t suit you”

You are not the voice in your head, you’re the one who listens to it

She checked her feed and I grabbed at the menu and I felt like a child letting go of a balloon
I said, “It’s just too hard to know how to tred, I mean, more time guys are just trying to keep it moving, no more time guys become an all-over rash, and it takes you by shock if it’s just fucking ew”

I was leaning in to try and get a little bit friendly, we were shooting up the bar with arrows of cupid
Wondered whether she felt like she was sitting in the bath and then moved and was cold and was covered in goosebumps

Said it me and her threw our problems on a stack
I would see hers and I’d want mine back

You are not the voice in your head, you’re the one who listens to it
You are not the voice in your head, you’re the one who listens to it

In the real world girls are making moves, someone needs to if we want the race to continue
I pointed but we almost kinda near enough touched, she remained still and didn’t duck and we didn’t touch

“You’re all lost, you’re eating sweets at the seaside, women need to be free so we can free you guys
You kiss the toy then avoid what’s important, you miss the point like you miss the toilet”

Awkward, thirsty, tryna corner her she caught me at my worst like the boy in my corner shop

“How the hell’s a man supposed to know why you are saying things when it is against the rules to find out straight, despite what it might seem, like it’s fucking implicit”

What someone thinks about you is none of your business

You are not the voice in your head, you’re the one who listens to it
You are not the voice in your head, you’re the one who listens to it
