lyrics

It’s now been a year since I went and blew it,
I’ll get straight to the point, here’s the fat, now chew it
- I bet you don’t even spare a second thought for me.

Forget the metaphors, I’ll just say it plainly;
despite the pain you caused, there ain’t no more distain,
I just thought you deserved a song, you see.

I might’ve been a girl, but you’re just plain old fashioned ghoulish,
and if that’s not the case then you know damn well that I’m foolish.
But you, you always had your silver tongue.

But despite your pricy words, it was rusting and you knew it
and all your lovers ducked whenever you drew it.
Yes, “lovers”, plural, I know you had more than one.

Chorus:
‘Cause you’re just like me,
You try your luck at every hand.
But I know the trouble, all of the trouble I am.
I know the trouble, all of the trouble I am.

So tell me what’s your game, what the hell’s your motive?
You went by pretty fast, but then again I just suppose it’s
definitely got something to do with me.

But I’m not in to all of that damn self deprecation,
I just thought I’d fall for a chance to have a taste of
that love, that love… that love…

But such naivety of thought deserves the backing of a boozer,
and you were drunk as hell and you were lusting for a loser,
and guess who was the first guy out of the blocks you happened to see.

And I don’t mean myself, I mean the guy who came before me,
don’t tell him what we did, it might reflect on us quite poorly.
Oh, god bless your soul.

Chorus:
‘Cause you’re just like me,
You try your luck at every hand.
But I know the trouble, all of the trouble I am.
I know the trouble, all of the trouble I am.
Yes, I know the trouble, all of the trouble I am.
