Fluorescent Adolescent by Arctic Monkeys

You used to get it in your fishnets
Now you only get it in your night dress
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness
Landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole
Nothing seems as pretty as the past, though
That Bloody Mary's lacking in Tabasco
Remember when he used to be a rascal?
Oh, that boy's a slag
The best you ever had
The best you (1)________ had
Is just a memory and those dreams
Weren't as daft as they seem
Not as daft as they seem, my love
When you dreamed them up

Remember when the boys were all electric?
Now, when she tells she's (2)__________ get it

Oh, (3)________ boy's a slag
The best you ever had
The best you ever had
Is just a memory and (4)__________ dreams
Weren't as daft as they seem
Not as (5)________ as they seem, my love
When you dreamed (6)________ up, (oh, flo)

Where did you go?
(Oh...)

You're falling about
You took a left off Last (7)__________ Lane
You were just soundin' it out
But you're not coming back again

You're falling about

You were (8)________ soundin' it out
But you're not coming back again
You used to get it in your fishnets

Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness
Landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole
Is everything as pretty as the past, though
That Bloody Mary's (9)______________ in Tabasco
