It's My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry

Album: Glasvegas (2008)
  • Let the raining tear-drops rain down on me tonight
    I think making up, faking up stories is alright
    Tick tock stop the clock, fiction is my thing
    My attitude is always I and me and mine

    Oh I'm so clever, I'm so clever, I'm so clever
    Until my paranoia kicks in then I'll accuse her
    Of doing all the worst things I do best
    It's funny how me fucking her about
    Has got me in this fucking mess

    Liar liar liar liar pants on fire
    Lies alibis lies more alibis
    From the truth, I admit I'm more than shy
    Ain't it the times we are living in
    Everybody's doing it so why can't I?

    I tally up tonight's strangers
    And stragglers that I've kissed
    Training ground notches, perfectly executed notches
    And near misses
    It's all about going out and getting pissed with eagle eyes
    And sincerity bottom on my list
    What's the story morning glory?
    I feel so low and worthless, yeah

    So this is where the outcome unfurls and the truth is being told
    A cloud has gathered over my head and now I know
    Infidelity and my good friend ecstasy doesn't work, it makes you worse
    I'm feeling so guilty about the things I said to my mum when I was ten year old
    I'm feeling so guilty about any old shit
    And how I think my missus is fucking every guy that she looks at
    This is it, this is it, this is it, this is it
    The end was always coming and now it's here

    So this is the grande finale
    The crescendo of demise
    This is the happy ending
    Where the bad guy goes down and dies
    This is the end
    With me on my knees and wondering why?
    Cross my heart, hope to die
    It's my own cheating heart that makes me cry Writer/s: JAMES ALLAN
