Текст песни:

Saw the night give way Where the light was golden So I took my leave Of all that I was holding Darling come the day When your nightmares fall I’ll be on that first plane home And we’ll outrun them all Well I guess it’s sweet We still live like strangers in the street It’s the cruelest thing When the word is spoken I swear it’s a sin To see you heartbroken Darling come the day It’s too much to breathe I’ll hold this space for you And I won’t let you leave I will keep the beat We’ll still move like strangers in the street Darling come the time When you slip away I’ll be that whispered word That hangs around your doorway Our tale complete We’ll still dance like strangers in the street

  • [Verse 1: Jon Fratelli] Pull me up a chair and keep your money, there's no guarantees Won’t you please forgive me but you know cold blooded women make me sneeze And I’ll kick you out the door if for just one minute you lie And they’ll come crashing through the wall and leave you crawling til’ the minute you die Pour yourself a drink or three and maybe we’ll think clearer for a while You may be an embarrassment but I love the way your clothes are never in style Livings much too easy, dying would be some kind of bore Well, you swear that you’re original but I know I’ve seen those jealous eyes before [Chorus] So steal the watch from off my wrist Oh, and shake me by the hand We could disappear for days And they wouldn’t understand Gypsy blood will get you far And will not miss you when you go [Verse 2] Tear another hole in my brown shoes and we can all sleep for a while Well I told you once before, I love your braces and your hesitant smile But please don’t get me wrong, it's only right that you can stamp on my heart Well I’ve seen you and your friends some place, you know I just can’t tell you apart [Refrain] And though they'll hunt you like a dog they won’t take you alive 'Cause you made them piles of money stacked up, twenty stories high And the boys in every bar, they will not miss you when you go [Chorus] So steal the watch from off my wrist Oh, and shake me by the hand We could disappear for days, and they wouldn’t understand Gypsy blood will get you far, though it’s far away from me Look me up when you get home and maybe then we'll see [Outro] Though they’ll hunt you like a dog, they won’t take you alive 'Cause you made them piles of money Stacked up twenty stories high And the boys from every bar Well, they’ll miss you when you’re gone You can tell a heady tale And we'll all keep screaming on La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la-la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la
  • Well let’s get one thing straight before I lose my place Oh baby, yes I love your conversation, not just your face You got my undivided sympathy and all of my time And though I promised you an answer Truth’s no real friend of mine I never did get the meaning of reality checks I dreamed my way out of the bedroom with no time to reflect Oh you could cut me and I wouldn’t bleed, I’m not even sure If you could say I was with you or call you mine anymore You always throw your hands up like some good little girl Come on baby, this is not the end of the world Come on baby, this is not the end of the world Come on baby, this is not the end of the world Come on baby, this is not the end of the world Come on baby, this is not the end of the world There was a cold wear reality that you couldn’t take You never made a single friend or a dishonest mistake You were a Halloween denier of the second degree And that says more about your mother than it does about me ‘Cause I was always at your heels, I was there with a grin When you were crawling through the backstreets of the lies and the sin I was the poster boy for nothing and no sir candidate I would have swept you off your feet but I got lost in your gate You never trusted anything that staggered and swerved Come on baby, this is not the end of the world Come on baby, this is not the end of the world Come on baby, this is not the end of the world Come on baby, this is not the end of the world Come on baby, this is not the end of the world You never had a reason, you were hopelessly lost You never kept the names of all the people you crossed You always had my sympathy whenever you died But all I could deliver was a headache to the bride You always throw your hands up like some good little girl Come on baby, this is not the end of the world Come on baby, this is not the end of the world Come on baby, this is not the end of the world Come on baby, this is not the end of the world Come on baby, this is not the end of the world
  • 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?
  • Girl you have such tragic taste in men Your predilection For comedians Your great addiction Though they treat you well They bring you brief glimpses of hell What a bombshell Maybe all these fools are on the payroll In that case sleep well and let the good times roll But understand it’s just the simple slight of hand On the other hand One plus one makes three I guess that’s true to some degree But only if you squint the right way Oh, watch frame by frame on action replay Girl you work your magic now and then Without restriction First your rebirth then your crucifixion When you show your hand Your services are in demand Maybe all these fools are on the payroll In that case sleep well and let the good times roll But understand it’s just the simple slight of hand On the other hand One plus one makes three I guess that’s true to some degree But only if you squint the right way Oh, watch frame by frame on action replay You took a gorgeous risk Oh, I won’t deny the genius Of those words that you sometimes twist Got me round your little finger Such a disagreeable business Then you go all-out disco Side-winding out of the picture Gone instead, let’s have a drink It’s no ordinary date I’ve got nothing planned On the other hand One plus one makes three I guess that’s true to some degree Like four plus four makes nine Oh, it’s been proven every time But only if you squint the right way Oh, watch frame by frame on action replay
  • Well here lie the remains Of every girl I’ve loved The princesses of heaven and hell Who thought they knew me well There goes my wishbone Here comes my crooked friend Screaming at you I was dead True right down to the end I was in a fury With a judge and with a jury You could tell I was a wicked man Well there was no one on the wall But the stupid and the small But they always do the best they can Well here lies Mother Brown She always looked so young I was never too easy to please Always on my knees Well there goes my last hope Here comes my bullet train Shooting the hole in my head On the wrong right side of my brain I was getting ready I was shaking I was steady I was pleading to be left alive Well I was digging for the gold Just waiting to be told That my cheating heart would survive I was in a fury With a judge and with a jury You could tell I was a wicked man Well there was no one on the wall But the stupid and the small But they always do the best they can Well here lie the remains of Celine and Lady Death A romance stringed up in a hole Another uneven soul There goes my last wish Here comes my audience Pitchforks pointing my way And it’s no coincidence I was in a bind Of the body and the mind And my mother was the last to know When I told her I was rotten I was better off forgotten And she never even said no, no, no, no, no I was never thick But the thought it wouldn’t click So I never had the best excuse You couldn’t say that I was best So they put me to the test With a never ending soul abuse I was in a fury With a judge and with a jury You could tell I was a wicked man Well there was no one on the wall But the stupid and the small But they always do the best they can I was getting ready I was shaking I was steady I was pleading to be left alive Well I was digging for the gold Just waiting to be told That my cheating heart would survive
