  • There's light at the end of the tunnel
    There's fight at the heart of a struggle
    You're smile should've told me you're trouble
    No more, no more, no more
    You owned me You buried all my worth with a shovel
    You're smile should've told me you're trouble
    No more, no more, no more

    No more goodbyes
    So so long
    So so long
    So so long
    Now
    No more white lies
    You used to be the one true thing in my world
    You told me that you loved me
    You're in love with yourself
    Shoulda listen to my mother
    You messed around the others
    Now you're dead to me
    I've been sleeping with the enemy
    Should keep your best friends close by
    Should keep your best friends close by
    You should keep your best friends close by
    But keep your enemies closer
    But keep your enemies closer

    So many evil talents you juggled
    It's fair to say you didn't act subtle
    Your smile should've told me you're trouble
    No more, no more, no more
    Came crashing down I'm staring at rubble
    They need to send you into space in a shuttle
    Your smile should've told me you're trouble
    No more, no more, no more

    No more goodbyes
    So so long
    So so long
    So so long
    Now
    No more white lies
    You used to be the one true thing in my world
    You told me that you loved me
    You're in love with yourself
    Shoulda listen to my mother
    You messed around the others
    Now you're dead to me
    I've been sleeping with the enemy
    Should keep your best friends close by
    Should keep your best friends close by
    You should keep your best friends close by
    But keep your enemies closer
    But keep your enemies closer

    Strange and deranged
    Seek fame was the name of the game
    Defeat rivals Abel and Kane
    Get trophies they'll look great in a frame
    What would you have done, take all the blame?
    With your hands held firm over naked flames
    Being grilled now you're shaking again
    Faking the pain, dark visions of Satan
    Contemplating, talking man to man
    She was a girl on film Duran Duran
    She called me her ape man orang-utan
    Me Tarzan, she Jane
    Take all the blame I'm the bloke in the chorus
    We were sweet once everybody saw us
    I ain't flawless still unsure
    I loved us but I loved me more

    You used to be the one true thing in my world
    You told me that you loved me
    You're in love with yourself
    Shoulda listen to my mother
    You messed around the others
    Now you're dead to me
    I've been sleeping with the enemy
    Should keep your best friends close by
    Should keep your best friends close by
    You should keep your best friends close by
    But keep your enemies closer
    But keep your enemies closer Writer/s: ALEX JAMES SMITH, ELLIOT JOHN GLEAVE
