  • Don't bother saying you're sorry.
    Why don't you come in?
    Smoke all my cigarettes, again.
    Every time I get no further.
    How long has it been?
    Come on in now,
    Wipe your feet on my dreams.

    You take up my time,
    Like some cheap magazine,
    When I could have been learning something.
    Oh well, you know what I mean.

    I've done this before.
    And I will do it again.
    Come on and kill me baby,
    While you smile like a friend.
    And I'll come running,
    Just to do it again.

    You are the last drink I never should drunk.
    You are the body hidden in the trunk.
    You are the habit I can't seem to kick.
    You are my secrets on the front page every week.
    You are the car I never should have bought.
    You are the train I never should have caught.
    You are the cut that makes me hide my face.
    You are the party that makes me feel my age.

    Like a car crash I can see but I just can't avoid.
    Like a plane I've been told I never should board.
    Like a film that's so bad but I've gotta stay til the end.
    Let me tell you now,
    It's lucky for you that we're friends.

    Like a car crash I can see but I just can't avoid.
    Like a plane I've been told I never should board.
    Like a film that's so bad but I've gotta stay til the end.
    Let me tell you now,
    It's lucky for you that we're friends. Writer/s: CANDIDA DOYLE, JARVIS BRANSON COCKER, MARK ANDREW WEBBER, NICK BANKS, PATRICK DOYLE, STEPHEN PATRICK MACKEY
