I've got a reputation
Of being a man with a gift of words
A romantic poetic type
Or so they say
But I find it hard to express
The way I feel about you
Without getting involved
In the old clichés
In the old clichés
It's an old cliché

This song's begun so many times
But never in a way
That you won't consider
To be an old cliché
I want to say that I need you
I miss you when you're away
And how it seemed like fate
Oh here we go
The same old clichés
It's the same old clichés

It's not that I'm embarrassed or shy
Well you know me too well
But I want to make this song special
In a way that you can tell
That it's solely for you
And for nobody else
For my best friend my lover
When I need help
Cliché
Cliché

Everything I want to say to you
Is wrapped up in an old cliché
I'd waited so long to find you
I'd been through the heartbreak and the pain
But of course you already know that
'Cause you've been through the same
That's why I'm trying to say
With my deepest sincerity
That's why I'm finding it comes down
To basic simplicities
The best way is with an old cliché
It's simply the best way is with an old cliché
Always the best way is with an old cliché
I'll leave it to the best way
It's an old cliché
I love you

It's not that I'm embarrassed or shy
Well you know me too well
But I want to make this song special
In a way that you can tell
That it's solely for you
And for nobody else
For my best friend my lover
When I need help

Simply the best way is with an old cliché
Always the best way is with an old cliché
Simply the best way
It's an old cliché
Simply the best way
It's an old cliché


Live 1999

I've got a reputation
Of being a man with the gift of words
A romantic poetic type
Or so they say
But I find it hard to express
The way I feel about you
Without getting involved
In the old clichés
It's an old cliché
It's an old cliché

This song's begun so many times
But never in a way
That you won't consider
To be an old cliché
I wanna say that I need you
I miss you when you're away
And how it seemed like fate
Ah here we go
The same old cliché
It's the same old cliché

It's not that I'm embarrassed or shy
You know me too well
But I want to make this song oh special
In a way that you can tell
That it's solely for you
And for nobody else
For my best friend
For my lover
For when I need help
Cliché
Cliché cliché

Everything I want to say to you
Is wrapped up in an old cliché
I'd waited so long to find you
Been through the heartbreak and the pain
But of course you already knew that
'Cause you've been through the same
That's why I'm trying to say
With my deepest sincerity
That's why I'm finding it comes down
To basic simplicity
The best way
Is with an old cliché
It's simply the best way
Is with an old cliché
Always the best way
It's an old cliché
I'll leave it to the best way
It's an old cliché
I love you
