Hold my hand while you cut me down
It had only just begun, but now it’s over now
And you’re in the heat of moments with your heart playing up cold
I’m between the middle watching hastiness unfold

On my eyes, you were smiling in the spotlight, dancing with the night
When I fell off your mind

I’m tired of trying
Your teasing ain’t enough
Fed up of buying your time
When I don’t get nothing back
And for what?
When I don’t get nothing back,
Oi, I’m tired

Where’d you go when you stayed behind,
I looked up and inside down and outside only to find
A double taking punching hard and laughing at my smile,
I get closer, you obviously prefer her

Where'd you go when you stayed behind?
I looked up and inside down and outside only to find
A double taking punching heartache laughing at my smile
I get closer, you obviously prefer her

I’m tired of trying
Your teasing ain’t enough
Fed up of buying your time
When I don’t get nothing back
And for what? And for what? And for what?
When I don’t get nothing back,
Oi, I’m tired of trying
Your teasing ain’t enough
Fed up of buying your time
When I don’t get nothing back
And for what? And for what? And for what?
When I don’t get nothing back,
Oi, I’m tired

I should have known

“Never mind,” said your open arms,
I couldn’t help the leap that tripped me back into them, even though

I’m tired of trying
Your teasing ain’t enough
Fed up of buying your time
When I don’t get nothing back
And for what? And for what? And for what?
When I don’t get nothing back,
Oi, I’m tired of trying
Your teasing ain’t enough
Fed up of buying your time
When I don’t get nothing back
And for what? And for what? And for what?
When I don’t get nothing back,
Oi, I’m tired
