lyrics

What’s the point in writing a book 
That'll never be as good as the greats? 
What’s the point in a sculpture then 
That’ll never end up in the Tate? 
What’s the point in a single 
That doesn’t smash the charts? 
What’s the point in a ballad 
That doesn’t break anyone’s heart? 
What’s the point in hanging around 
Without taking part? 
What’s the point in living a life 
That isn’t higher art?
Oh I could tell you what the point is 
But I wouldn’t know where to start

It’s the little things, yeah 
The little things we share 
The little things make it all worthwhile 
All the different strokes and styles 
That make variety 
That maybe you can’t see 
If you expect everything to be 
Competing for immortality 
It’s the little things, y’know 
Things that make you glow 
Things like a common memory shared 
Things you’d see if you really cared 
To look for 
Those little things
 
What’s the point in a movement 
That doesn’t win elections? 
What’s the point in a protest song 
That doesn’t change perceptions?
What’s the point in a movie 
That’s apolitical? 
What’s the point in an illustration 
That’s really literal? 
What’s the point in going out with someone 
If you don’t get the perfect kiss? 
Whats the point in going out at all 
If you don't get completely pissed?
Well I’ll tell you what the point is 
And why I’m singing this:

It’s the little things, I mean 
The little inbetweens 
Unexpected twists, exquisite wrists 
The kinds of things you’d probably miss 
If you expect your life to be 
A constant jamboree 
Of revolution, revelation, 
Romanticism and creation 
The little things, y’know 
Things that make you glow 
A favourite taste, a favourite smell 
A favourite sound, well, who can tell 
Where you’ll find 
The little things

Well I could tell you why we’re here 
If you give me half a year

It's the little things, I said 
The little greens and reds 
Eyelashes and fingertips 
Water, grapes and chilli dips 
Saxophone and harps 
Quavers, flats and sharps 
Jumps and screams and surreal dreams 
Neon lights and mountain streams 
The little things, y’know 
Things that make you glow 
So don’t feel down if regret still rings 
When all you’ve ever done is little things 
For the world is changed 
By little things 
The world is changed 
By little things
