Текст песни:

Turn off the light when you leave
Switch off that evil sound
I’m trying hard not to breathe
Till I’m on solid ground
Sometimes that’s just how it goes
Take it from someone who knows
Eyes wide, tongue tied
She replied, «I'm lost inside»
I’m not your miracle man
I’m not your spirit guide
Before this whole thing began
I had some sense of pride
Just one more night with your lips
Your company is hard to eclipse
Weak knees, yes indeed
Guaranteed, make my heart bleed
Give me a reason to breathe
Don’t let my sun go down
I’ll make you sad and receive
I’ll be your sacred ground
Be my Medusa in Chains, petrified
Only your beauty remains
Tell me, baby, one more time
Won’t you be a friend of mine?
Put out your e-cigarette
Take off your sequin shawl
Just try your best to forget
That I once made you crawl
Just one more sway of your hips
I love the way your confidence slips
You should be outlawed, dear God
Every single breath, I applaud
Give me a reason to breathe
Don’t let my sun go down
I’ll make you sad and receive
I’ll be your sacred ground
Be my Medusa in Chains, petrified
Only your beauty remains
Tell me, baby, one more time
Won’t you be a friend of mine?

  • Well I met her in a bar, the men with big guitars were playin And I listened with my ears but I couldn’t hear what she was sayin And I guess she talked with her mind But didn’t want to seem to unkind so I just laughed And kept my eyes peeled to the door………. Wondering what I was there for But it’s alright, it’s alright It’s alright, it’s alright I got my nuts from a hippy in a camper van on Saturday night Well I asked if she believed in Adam and Eve the fable And I guess she would’ve given me an answer if only she was able And she danced like a medicine man Drew a crazy picture on my hand and told me She wanted to change my point of view Asked me where I was going to Well she whispered in my ear we got to get us out of here to the country I asked her for a ride she took me aside said «try me» I thought I’m gonna wake pretty soon In the middle of a Sunday afternoon just dreamin And it was warm in the back of her van When she made me a real man
  • Well she came round here and nobody could speak her name And she talked in circles like she needed someone else to blame And everybody prayed she would go back from where she came The sun didn’t shine and for forty days all it did was rain Well the lights burned out, and the circus they got out of town And the priest’s last rites were the only words that could be found The loverboys couldn’t tell the time ’cause the phones were down The poets couldn’t find the words to describe the sound Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Came, she saw, she made them cry Lost their hearts but don’t know why Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Spoke the words and begged to die Sold her dream for you and I Well the good girls danced with the devil in the open yard (Jeannie, Jeannie, oh Jeannie, Jeannie) But the blood from their thighs was the only thing that made him hard (Jeannie, Jeannie, oh Jeannie, Jeannie) She couldn’t read the signs on the wall where they had her scarred She was the one time lover of a victim of the avant-garde Well it was said she was raised by the praise of a furious man (Jeannie, Jeannie, oh Jeannie, Jeannie) But she couldn’t tell you how or when that it all began (Jeannie, Jeannie, oh Jeannie, Jeannie) A woman has to feel alive any way she can She don’t plead dumb or pretend that she don’t understand Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Came, she saw, she made them cry Lost their hearts but don’t know why Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Spoke the words and begged to die Sold her dream for you and I Well she came round here and nobody could speak her name And she talked in circles like she needed someone else to blame And everybody prayed she would go back from where she came The sun didn’t shine and for forty days all it did was rain Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Came, she saw, she made them cry Lost their hearts but don’t know why Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Spoke the words and begged to die Sold her dream for you and I
  • [Verse 1] Well, once I was persuaded to open up my head I told them how it was and went and got it wrong instead I said, would you believe me if you only knew I'd been stealing everything, this conversation's through [Pre-Chorus] And the boy cried, hang him at three I saw him on the front page, laughing at me He worked in a fairground in a tall hat He's a liar, he's a liar, a good one at that [Chorus] Say what you wanna, say what you will Write your number on my telephone bill Walk like a monkey, kick like a mule I could be a beggar, but I'd rather be just as cruel [Verse 2] So I told them all I could about what could they expect But I lost my sense of smell and I gained my self-respect They told me I was curious, I told them they were slow And they asked me where I get this stuff, I told them I don't know [Pre-Chorus] And the boy cried whopie-deedee There's a women with a mustache who won't let me be Though she was born on a Monday, she's a hundred and four She's a liar, she's a liar, a little bit more [Chorus] Say what you wanna, say what you will Writes her number on my telephone bill Walk like a monkey, kick like a mule I could be a beggar, but I'd rather be just as cruel [Guitar solo]
  • Well just slow down come on Lupe Brown Tell Desdemona that I'm ready to leave Well she's nothing much to look at and she's hard to believe Don't go down throw your arms around Every little psycho that you happen to see Well you meant everything to them But you meant nothing to me Well you're girlfriend made me itch And though I'll keep you in mind I would be happy to switch I don't know where you got that voice I would sell you to London if you gave me the choice Check those old clothes and those red bows Though you're a scrawny pup I Would be happy just to cheer you up, oh yes Well just slow down come on Lupe Brown Tell Desdemona that I'm ready to leave Well she's nothing much to look at and she's hard to believe Don't go down throw your arms around Every little psycho that you happen to see Well you meant everything to them But you meant nothing to me You got nothing I wish to steal Cause I got nothing to give you on account of Lucille She don't walk like a cripple should Well she's Columbia's finest oh she's better than good Wednesday's DJ's came in side ways Yelling for the mother of the sister And the brother of Orla the tease Well just slow down come on Lupe Brown Tell Desdemona that I'm ready to leave Well she's nothing much to look at and she's hard to believe Don't go down throw your arms around Every little psycho that you happen to see Well you meant everything to them But you meant nothing to me
  • I'm trying to keep my brains from getting dry There's only way I know I'm gonna bolt shut the windows Barricade the doors Let all of my judgements go I'll take the meat from the table Talk straight while I'm able Untill I'm nothing less than a crime Until my heart stops beating I will drink myself too much wine Well I know I'm getting nowhere Creeping up the backstair Telling myself I'm in pain Even I don't believe me I'm threatening to leave me Till only my dumbness remains Well even schoolgirls deride me There's something dead inside me I'd give away my blood for a sign Until my ship comes in I'm gonna drink myself too much wine Too much wine, too much wine I'll be your best kind of friend I'll be submissive to the end of the line And when the clock strikes seven They can cut me down in my prime I'll be your last witchdoctor I'll be anything for too much wine I'm trying to keep my brains from getting dry There's only way I know I'm gonna bolt shut the windows Barricade the door Let all of my judgements go I'll take the meat from the table Talk straight while I'm able Untill I'm nothing less than a crime Until my heart stops beating I will drink myself too much wine Too much wine, too much wine Too much wine I'll be your best kind of friend I'll be submissive to the end of the line And when the clock strikes seven They can cut me down in my prime I'll be your last witchdoctor I'll be anything for too much wine Too much wine, too much wine I'll be your best kind of friend I'll be submissive to the end of the line And when the clock strikes seven They can cut me down in my prime I'll be your last witchdoctor too much wine I'll be anything for too much wine I'll be your last witchdoctor too much wine I'll be anything for too much wine I'll be your last witchdoctor too much wine I'll be anything for too much wine
