Nobody's Off The Hook

Album: Release the Stars (2007)
  • Haven't fallen down in a while
    Sitting here, walking the line
    Well, that's okay; I ain't no book
    'Cause nobody's off the hook

    See you looking so sad
    Trying to live your life in style
    Well, that's okay; you ain't no crook
    'Cause nobody's off the hook

    I remember you when, looking like a teenager
    How you have become a man with all the power
    Running the moon aground
    Who would ever have thought, hanging with a homo and hairdresser
    You would become the one desired in every woman's heart
    But you never will lose your heart with those little boys

    Haven't fallen down in a while
    Sitting here, walking the line
    Well, that's okay 'cause I have looked
    And nobody's off the hook

    'Cause life will take that little heart and bring you to your knees
    Threatening to break it for the final time
    And you'll believe it
    Yes, you will believe it

    But look
    Nobody's off the hook Writer/s: RUFUS WAINWRIGHT
