lyrics

When you come back I’ll stop the traffic and I’ll
Grow my hair long and we’ll share the sofa I’ll
Burn some ying-yang and I’ll read your tarot I’ll
Tell your fortune and we’ll wake up sober

But don’t try to get too close
Cause I’m all out of room on this man-made tightrope

When you come back I’ll dig your pony and I’ll
Serve you cocktails and we’ll practice karma I’ll
Bore you stupid and we’ll watch the grass grow and I’ll
Count your blessings and we’ll wake up sober

But don’t try to get too close
Cause I’m all out of room on this man-made tightrope

When you come back I’ll draw blood from this open wound
When you come back I’ll draw blood from this open wound

When you come back I’ll face the music and I’ll
Watch you tumble and we’ll paint our eyebrows I’ll
Keep your secrets and I’ll soothe your sunburn and we’ll
Break the habit and then wake up sober

But don’t try to get too close
Cause I’m all out of room on this man-made tightrope

When you come back I’ll draw blood from this open wound
When you come back I’ll draw blood from this open wound

When you come back I’ll steal your thunder and I’ll
Spread the rumour and we’ll share our sorrows I‘ll
Grant your wishes and we’ll scream the chorus and I’ll
Win you over and then sell your soul

When you come back I’ll draw blood from this open wound
When you come back I’ll draw blood from this open wound
