  • I love you more than any man
    But something's getting in the way
    I do you harm because I can
    For the second time today
    Victims we are not of happenstance
    But you're a victim all the same
    Stuck inside a circumstance
    With your confusion and your blame

    And when I get drunk
    You take me home and keep me safe from harm
    When I get drunk, you take me home

    I ask you for another second chance
    But then I drink it all away
    And I get bellicose when you react
    For the frustration and dismay
    I was so delicate when we began
    So tender when I spoke your name
    But now I'm nothing but a partisan
    To my compulsion and my shame

    And when I get drunk
    You take me home and keep me safe from harm
    When I get drunk, you take me home

    You know, I'm grateful, I appreciate
    But in fact, it's baleful how I suck you dry
    How I suck you dry
    How I suck you dry
    How I suck you
    How I suck you dry
    How I suck you dry
    How I suck you dry

    I love you more than any man
    But I seem to lay it all to waste
    I do you harm because I can
    With a joke in questionable taste
    I've such duplicity at my command
    So I keep on lying to your face
    Then I run away to wonderland
    And disappear without trace

    When I get drunk
    You take me home and keep me safe from harm
    When I get drunk, you take me home

    You know, I'm grateful, I appreciate
    But in fact, it's baleful how I suck you dry
    How I suck you dry
    How I suck you dry
    How I suck you
    How I suck you dry
    How I suck you dry
    How I suck you dry Writer/s: BRIAN MOLKO, STEFAN OLSDAL, STEVEN JOSEPH FORREST, WILLIAM PATRICK LLOYD
