  • Well you're wrapped up in a blanket and you're staring at the floor
    The conversation's moderated by the noisy streets below
    I never wanna hurt you baby, I'm just a mess with a name and a price
    And now I'm drunker than before, they told me drinking doesn't make me nice

    You never know where some people will go
    Yeah some people been hurtin' me
    You can tell by look, by the slightest crook
    In the neck or the blink of an eye

    Well then we'll see what they say and we'll do what they do
    But that doesn't mean a goddamn thing
    You can listen if you want, you can listen if you don't
    Yeah they'll talk, yeah they'll even sing

    Everybody now, oh oh oh oh oh
    They come singing through the window, singing through the trees, yeah
    They're singing trough the bright spring leaves
    Everybody now, oh oh oh oh oh
    Yeah they love you when they need you, but someday you're gonna need to
    Find some other kind of place to go, oh

    Now you're standing in the kitchen, and you're pouring out my drink
    Well there's a very obvious difference, and it's that one of us can think
    If there's a bump in the road yeah you fix it,
    But for me I'll just run off the road
    But tonight you've got me cornered, and I haven't got a place to go

    You never know where some people will go
    Yeah some people been hurtin' me
    You can tell by look, by the slightest crook
    In the neck or the blink of an eye

    Well then we'll see what they say and we'll do what they do
    But that doesn't mean a goddamn thing
    You can listen if you want, you can listen if you don't
    Yeah they'll talk, yeah they'll even sing

    Everybody now, oh oh oh oh oh
    They come singing through the window, singing through the trees
    Yeah they're singing trough the bright spring leaves
    Everybody now, oh oh oh oh oh (sing it loud, sing it loud)
    Yeah they love you when they need you, but someday you're gonna need to
    Find some other kind of place to go, don't you know
    Oh oh oh oh oh
