Текст песни:

She can't help it, the girl can't help it

You can find her scratching around in the dark
Just another candle chasing a spark
You can find her screaming along with the ghosts
Reminds you she's the one you needed the most

And then you're out there on your own again
No one believes you when you lie
I still see all the old girls now and then
Catching the moonlight as they cry

She can't help it, the girl can't help it

The wrong way round's the right way up when she calls
You can laugh but it won't mean nothing at all
Yes you can find her scratching away in her room
Stumblin' round by the light of the stragglers moon

And then you're out there digging holes again
Six million people can't be wrong
Some day you'll buy the perfect soul and then
you can get back where you belong

And then you're out there on your own again
No one believes you when you lie
I still see all the old girls now and then
catching the moonlight when they cry

  • Well the room was pink and the signs were serious Paperback dolls being slammed delirious Feeling like a joke in the bar underneath And it was Saturday night in the year of the good thief Well I tumbled up the stairs the wrong way ’round I hit my head on the ceiling when my feet hit the ground And then the big dumb blonde in the gold fish bowl Cried Ella’s in the band but she’s got no soul! My friend John was a serious one Buttoned up the back and a job half done Lazy old boy when the good girls turn His teeth get itchy and his rubber soles burn When will he ever learn? Well the night was spent and my money was young And then I had to get home before my neck was wrung And everybody danced in the same old way And if I’m feeling old and desperate I’ll be back some day My friend John was a serious one Buttoned up the back and a job half done Lazy old boy when the good girls turn His teeth get itchy and his rubber soles burn When will he ever learn?
  • Well, little girl You can roll your eyes at the very sight of me Do everything in spite of me But, baby, don't you lie to me I'll take your mood swings I'll dig a hole in your dishonesty I will kneel down in your company But, baby, don't you lie to me I'll be your red cheek lover And your man of regret There'll be no desert too dry and no ocean too wet I'll be your punchbag substitute I'll sharpen your claws When you come tumbling down you're still in my thoughts There's just one thing, baby, I can never abide No matter how much you beg No matter how hard you try You can tell me that I'll never be free Baby, don't you lie to me Well, little sister I can handle the thought of you despising me Dancing on my grave and baptizing me As long as, baby, you don't lie to me I'll pay my till, You have broken my will, I'll be no enemy You'll never hear so much as a complaint from me As long as, baby, you don't lie to me Well, you can take my house Don't take my pride Take all my valentines cards and tear them open wide Chase my friends, ruin my name I won't ever fight back I'll be easy to blame Well, there's just one thing, baby, I will always despise It's not the crack of your whip or the hatred in your eyes I got only one reasonable plea Baby, don't you lie to me Burn my house, throw me out Pull me down, sell my clothes I'll dig you out of a hole With your ignorant shows I'll be anything you need me to be Baby, don't you lie to me Every time your lips move, baby Someone, somewhere's bound to cry I don't even think you're quite aware of how or why Life for you could be so easy If you'd only shut your mouth Every time you feel those words come Runnin' out, runnin' out, runnin' out Ahhhhhhh! There's just one thing, baby, I can never abide No matter how much you beg No matter how hard you try You can tell me that I'll never be free Baby, don't you lie to me Drag my reputation all on the courthouse stones Break my heart up into pieces, honey, shatter my bones You can kill me with your repartee Baby, don't you lie to me Well, there's just one thing, baby, I will always despise It's not the crack of your whip or the hatred in your eyes I got only one reasonable plea Baby, don't you lie to me Burn my house, throw me out Pull me down, sell my clothes, I'll dig you out of a hole With your ignorant shows I'll be anything you need me to be Baby, don't you lie to me
  • [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]
  • This place was once a home, But now you're gone. Gone like the sun, You took away, It was coming so they say. This boy and his heavy heart, Were feeling small. Kicking around the leaves, It seems, We're so vacant after all. There's nothing more to say, Let me sleep these dreams away, We'll check out soon. Me and the Belle, She knows me so well, She don't want my soul, She's not in control. Oh, find me place, A discounted space, A hole in the ground, Nobody's favourite now. This night, This pretty light, With my best friends. Keeping the hounding dogs away, From my window night and day. This place was once a home But now it's still All of the stars are sleeping low On my broken windowsill Won't you let me be Just the old has-beens and me I'll check out soon Rolling in style Be gone for a while A million and one Has-beens in the sun Pretending to care Going nowhere Floating around Nobody's favourite now Well there's nothing more to say Let me sleep these dreams away And won't you let me be Just the old has-beens and me We'll check out soon Rolling in style Be gone for a while A million and one Has-beens in the sun Pretending to care Oh going nowhere Just floating around Nobody's favourite... now
  • She said, "I know that there will come a time When I get nothing from the blood and the wine" I'm gonna sell this soul of mine I'm gonna sell this soul of mine You'll find me a silver chain They'll deny me and whisper my name I'm gonna sell this soul of mine I'm gonna sell this soul of mine I'll carry myself half way blind Through each and every doorway I can find I'm gonna sell this soul of mine I'm gonna sell this soul of mine I'm gonna lose my lonely mind for you Well there's an answer if only I knew It'll carry my heart home to you I'm gonna sell this soul of mine I'm gonna sell this soul of mine I'm digging the dirt for a sign And pray to let my little light shine I'm gonna sell this soul of mine I'm gonna sell this soul of mine I'm going to lose my lonely mind for you I'm going to lose my lonely mind for you Tell one last beautiful lie for me Make all your promises rhyme for me Keep me in line but do it honestly Make it real, make it slow, stay alive for me Come on, babe where the line goes dead I'll be fire, I'll be rain, I'll be joy, I'll be dread Come on, baby don't be shy All I want is you and I Out on the street I'll be every face There'll be no man alive That can take my place Give it up, let it go The sooner you do the sooner I'll go I'm digging the dirt for a sign And I'll pray to let my little light shine And set my heart on the line I'm gonna sell this soul of mine I'm gonna sell this soul of mine I'm going to lose my lonely mind for you I'm going to lose my lonely mind I'm going to lose my lonely mind for you
