  • Living here is a game
    I don't know how to play
    Are you really not anybody
    Until somebody knows your name?

    I'm not sure where that's going
    Somebody used to show me,
    They don't feel like showing

    Please don't let me bring you down
    Do I look like I'm fucking around?

    Love seems to be some kind of trickery
    Some great thing to which I am a mystery
    I'm not sure I can do it
    You had it on me once before,
    I only just got through it

    Please don't let me bring you down
    Did you think I was fucking around?

    I'm a woman now, can you believe?
    Only one thing I'm sure of and that's that you deceive
    What have you got hidden up your sleeve?
    Some kind of release without relief
    I'm not sure I can do it
    You had it on me once before I only just got through it

    Why did you let me bring you down?
    Did you think I was fucking around? Writer/s: LAURA BEATRICE MARLING
