  • To pretend no one can find
    The fallacies of morning rose
    Forbidden fruit, hidden eyes
    Courtesies that I despise in me
    Take a ride, take a shot now

    'Cause nobody loves me
    It's true
    Not like you do

    Covered by the blind belief
    That fantasies of sinful screens
    Bear the facts, assume the dye
    End the vows no need to lie, enjoy
    Take a ride, take a shot now

    'Cause nobody loves me
    It's true
    Not like you do

    Who am I, what and why?
    'Cause all I have left
    Is my memories of yesterday
    Oh, these sour times

    'Cause nobody loves me
    It's true
    Not like you do

    After time the bitter taste
    Of innocence decent or race
    Scattered seeds, buried lives
    Mysteries of our disguise revolve
    Circumstance will decide

    'Cause nobody loves me
    It's true
    Not like you do

    'Cause nobody loves me
    It's true
    Not like you
    Nobody loves me
    It's true
    Not like you do Writer/s: Adrian Utley, Beth Gibbons, Geoff Barrow, Henry Brooks, Lalo Schifrin, Otis Turner
