  • Somebody told me it was pointless for me to come back
    Into your arms
    Said you fucked another man, finally
    I knew this day would come, whoa oh oh
    'Cause I see fear in your eyes
    You've been living out your life
    As long as you know that when I land you're mine
    It's been exactly 365 since I've seen your face
    I've been living on the road
    And you've been living all alone, at home
    Girl I hope,
    He made you satisfied
    Well baby I won't cry
    As long as you know that when I land you're mine

    And you will never feel so pretty
    And you will never feel this beautiful
    When I make it there
    Oh when I make it there

    There are certain things that I've come to understand
    Expectations can kill a simple man, simple woman whoa oh
    I try to master the art,
    Of that far away love
    But only so much can keep a woman warm
    (Warm, ooh)
    Now it's times like this that I say to myself
    (Say to myself)
    We've been living in a cold, cold world
    Cold world
    But at least I have you to rely
    Even if for a short time
    As long as you know when I land you're mine

    And you will never feel so pretty
    And you will never feel this beautiful
    Oh when I make it there
    Oh when I make it there
    And he can't make you feel this pretty
    And he won't make you feel this beautiful
    When I make it there
    Oh when I make it there

    Ah
    No no-no
    Ah
    No no no-no
    Ah
    No no no no no
    Ah

    Oh oh oh ah
    Ooh
    Hoo hoo hoo
    Ooh
    Hoo hoo hoo
    Ooh
    Oh babe (oh)

    Ooh ha
    Ooh ha
    Ooh ha, ha

    And you will never feel so pretty (pretty)
    And you will never feel this beautiful (beautiful)
    When I make it there (when I make it there)
    Oh when I make it there (hey)
    And he can't make you feel this pretty (pretty)
    No he won't make you feel this beautiful (beautiful)
    When I make it there (when I make it there baby)
    Oh when I make it there

    And you will never feel so pretty (pretty)
    And you will never feel this beautiful (beautiful)
    When I make it there (when I make it there)
    Oh when I make it there
    And he can't make you feel this pretty
    And he won't make you feel this beautiful (ooh babe)
    When I make it there (when I make it there)(hey)
    When I make it there
    When I make it there

    Quand une putain de colombe blanche chante sa chanson,
    C'est tout ce qu'on entend.
    Les jours se défilent comme de la ficelle dans le vent
    Embobiné dans ma toile, je les dévoile à nouveaux
    10 ans mon ami, que ne rien d'autre compte
    Elle n'était qu'une gamine à ce moment
    Souffrant d'un cœur brisé
    Une douleur très profonde.
    C'est là où je l'ai aperçue
    Seule, prête à entamer ses 17 ans Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
