Lyrics

Bought on stolen wine
A nod was the first step
You know very well
What was coming next

Bought on stolen wine
A nod was the first step
You know very well
What was coming next

Did I really walk all this way
Just to hear you say:
"Oh, I don't want to go out tonight"?

"Oh, I don't want to go out tonight"
But you will for you must

I don't owe you anything, no
But you owe me something
Repay me now

You should never go to them
Let them come to you
Just like I do, just like I do

You should not go to them
Let them come to you
Just like I do, just like I do

Did I really walk all this way
Just to hear you say:
"Oh, I don't want to go out tonight"?

"Oh, I don't want to go out tonight"
But you will for you must

I don't owe you anything, no
But you owe me something
Repay me now

Too freely on your lips
Words prematurely sad
Oh, but I know what will make you smile tonight

Life is never kind
Life is never kind
Oh, but I know what will make you smile tonight
