  • Once burned, twice shunned
    Too much of your line made me blind.
    I'd wait all night
    But you left one too many times.

    I want to change my orbit
    Don't care what you do now.
    I want to live in darkness
    Don't want to be spun around.

    You go down, down, down
    I fall out of love with you.
    Come back round, round, round
    You son of a gun.

    You go down, down, down.
    This time I won't save you
    When you drown, drown, drown
    You son of a gun.
    You son of a gun.

    Birds sing for you,
    You can make the blue sky blush
    You've got them all fooled
    But I am burned out on this rush.

    I want to change my orbit
    Don't care what you do now.
    I want to live in darkness
    Don't want to be spun around.

    You go down, down, down
    I fall out of love with you.
    Come back round, round, round
    You son of a gun.

    You go low, low, low.
    This time I won't save you
    When you go, go, go
    You son of a gun.
    You son of a gun.

    Red sky creepin'
    Disappearing
    Bye-bye feeling
    Heart you're stealing

    You go down, down, down
    I fall out of love with you.
    Come back round, round, round
    You son of a gun.

    You go down, down, down.
    This time I won't save you
    When you drown, drown, drown
    You son of a gun.
    You son of a gun.
    You son of a gun. Writer/s: JIMMY HARRY, NANNA FABRICIUS
