It seems my way of livin’ don’t live up to your standards
And if you had your way I’d be some proper kinda lady
Well the door is over there if I may speak with perfect candor
You’re welcome to walk through it any old time that you fancy

Cos I need this shit like I need another hole in my head
It was more the way the words came out than the things you said
I’m too damn tired to feed the dog or get outta bed
Too damn tired to walk away, too tired to make it through another day
Just gonna lie here and complain instead

I will survive without your love and don’t you dare pretend I won’t
Been all alone before and lived to tell the tale
Every day here lately damned if I do damned if I don’t
Thought we found a good thing seems I keep findin’ new ways to fail

Well, I need this shit like I need another hole in my head
It was more the way the words came out than the things you said
I’m too damn tired to feed the dog or get outta bed
Too damn tired to walk away, too tired to make it through another day
Just gonna lie here and complain instead

Cos I need this shit like I need another hole in my head
It was more the way the words came out than the things you said
I’m too damn tired to feed the dog or get outta bed
Too damn tired to walk away, too tired to make it through another day
Just gonna lie here and complain instead

Just gonna lie here and complain instead
