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
