Текст песни:

Talk with me in your vacant tones
Take my heart in your bare hands, keep it beating
I never wanted anything but this
I never saw myself fading or repeating

So help me God I was sold
A promise from a liar
Religion for a blindfold
Work it out
Work it out
Give me silver, give me gold

I don’t know if it’s devine
But I know that it’s mine
I don’t know if it’s devine
But I know that it’s mine

Stay with me til my talk gets strange
Stay with me til my eyes get low and heavy
I know this and this only as myself
I’ll sing that melody when I’m good and ready

So help me God I was sold
A promise from a liar
Religion for a blindfold
Work it out
Work it out
Give me silver, give me gold

I don’t know if it’s devine
But I know that it’s mine
I don’t know if it’s devine
But I know that it’s mine
I don’t know if it’s devine
But I know that it’s mine
I don’t know if it’s devine
But I know that it’s mine

I don’t know if it’s devine
But I know that it’s mine
Work it out
Work it out
Take me high, break me down
I don’t know if it’s devine
But I know that it’s mine
Hold me close
Let me go
This is all I need to know
I don’t know if it’s devine
But I know that it’s mine
Kneel down
Make no sound
Here comes your last time around
I don’t know if it’s devine
But I know that it’s mine
Take the smile
Off your lips
Where you go when time just slips

  • Baby doll, do you believe They'll catch you when you fall And when morning comes, the sun is gonna shine Don't forget your minor key's Your half lit cigarette 'Cause when morning comes, God knows that you'll be mine So let me in, I'm ready to beg and to sing for my sins Not leave it to chance and sweet coincidence That's just crazy and you know it's true Well they said you were long gone I just laughed and said alright Bring her home tonight And I heard you was graciously put on I just laughed and said good night guess it's alright Baby doll, the men who hang Like flowers in you hall Are asking when your love is gonna show And who knows why the love you need Will always pass you by Well I heard it's true your love is gonna grow So let me know, 'Cause I can stay, or honey I can go Just do whatever you tell me so And find my place there and there I'll stay Well they said you was burned out, I just laughed And said come on she's not burned, she's just gone And it took me too long till I found out Faces that you know the best, oh well I guess And they laughed when you said you was leaving Everybody knows you well Except for me can't you tell And you watched from the wings of the late show Roses by your feet of red For me you said Baby doll Baby doll Baby doll...

  • She said "I'm Rosie" Она сказала: "Я Рози". - I said "I thought you were Lucy" "А я думал, ты Люси". — She said "No Rosie, I told you so" "Да нет же, я Рози, я же тебе говорила! Was here with your sister Я была здесь с твоей сестрой, But she's going out the back Но она уже ушла". I wanna dance and have fun y'know Да мне все равно, я просто хочу потанцевать и повеселиться. Of all the shitty little places Забавно, что из всех мерзких мест, где я бываю, I meet you it's here Я встретил тебя именно здесь And I'm freaking out Да еще и веду себя донельзя странно. I heard you got a brand new name Слышал, ты тут неплохо известна, Selling Es in the dark Продаешь тайком колеса. But hey it's nothing to shout about Хотя, да, об этом лучше помалкивать. Don't just say yes to tease me Не соглашайся только для того, чтобы подразнить меня, Do your up most to please me Лучше постарайся мне угодить. I don't mean to be sleazy Я не говорю, что ты должна делать что-то непристойное — Being you can't be easy Понимаю, тебе и так нелегко, When you're creepin' up the backstairs Когда ты тихонько пробираешься по черной лестнице, Mother's nightmares Не можешь нормально войти в дом, Falling in the front door Потому что тебя караулит мать — My my Кошмар! Climbing in the window Давай, лезь в окно, Get dressed, let's go Одевайся по-быстрому, Take your brother's car keys Прихвати ключи от машины брата Bye bye И поедем. Well I see your yellow fingers Ну да, я вижу твои желтые пальцы, And your crucifix bones Твои кости — такие, будто тебя распяли All covered in cellophane И все покрытые какой-то пленкой. Was there when your best friend said И я слышал, как твой лучший друг сказал: "Sweetheart, I'm just here to get drunk again" "Милая, я пришел сюда только для того, чтобы снова напиться". I wouldn't move if I was you Знаешь, на твоем месте я бы остался, I wouldn't wanna caught when the lights go out Хотя не хотелось бы, чтобы меня схватили, как только стемнеет. She said "You think you're so special" Она сказала: "Думаешь, ты особенный?" — I said "Sunshine I'm just just bored "Да нет, солнышко, просто мне очень скучно, I'm just checkin' out" и я зашел сюда, посмотреть, что тут делается". Don't just say yes to tease me Не соглашайся только для того, чтобы подразнить меня, Do your up most to please me Лучше постарайся мне угодить. I don't mean to be sleazy Я не говорю, что ты должна делать что-то непристойное — Being you can't be easy Понимаю, тебе и так нелегко, When you're creepin' up the backstairs Когда ты тихонько пробираешься по черной лестнице, Mother's nightmares Не можешь нормально войти в дом, Falling in the front door Потому что тебя караулит мать — My my Кошмар! Climbing in the window Давай, лезь в окно, Get dressed, let's go Одевайся по-быстрому, Take your brother's car keys Прихвати ключи от машины брата Bye bye И поедем.
