  • The blinds here are so sharp and they cut
    The light from a primitive sun
    You know I really wanted her
    Society thinks so highly of
    This hotel I vomited on
    Before I lost the sight of her

    My man, he quietly closes the door
    Now the pharaoh has woken
    My hands, I feel like I've been here before
    She has already spoken

    Anyway
    There's no reason to get hurt
    You don't need to sell your shirt
    To do the Devil's work

    You've finally found your place
    You know it always was
    You know it always was

    I saw someone who looked like you on
    The platform at Bondi Station
    But from a younger era

    The lights in the bell house were still on
    We all need somebody to love
    Be we clothed or naked

    My man, he quietly closes the door
    Now the pharaoh has woken
    My hands, I feel like I've been here before
    She has already spoken

    Anyway
    There's no reason to get hurt
    You don't need to sell your shirt
    To do the Devil's work

    You've finally found your place
    You know it always was
    You know it always was Writer/s: ANDREW WYATT, CHRISTIAN KARLSSON, PONTUS JOHAN WINNBERG
