Lyrics

Why'd you make me work so hard,
To put on that evening show,
When you know that all I want,
Is to make your money grow?

You're like a baby,
Who don't got nowhere to go,
I feel you eyein' me,
You keep it on the low.
(On the low, on the low)

But I can't let you in,
And I can't keep you out,
I wait for life to win,
But it never comes around

And I can't hear you call,
And I can't hear me shout,
I wait for it to break,
But it never comes around.

And I'm lonely,
I'm lonely,
I'm lonely.

Why do you make me take that shit,
To put on that evening show,
When you know I don't need it,
Better than your booze and blow?

You're like a baby,
Don't know better you don't know,
You drag me down,
You try to keep it on the low.

But I can't let you in,
And I can't keep you out,
I wait for life to win,
But it never comes around

And I can't hear you call,
And I can't hear me shout,
I wait for it to break,
But it never comes around.

(Ee-ee-ee, ah-ah-ah)
Feel like I'm falling apart.
(Ee-ee-ee, ah-ah-ah)
Feel like I'm falling apart.
(Ee-ee-ee, ah-ah-ah)
Feel like I'm falling apart.

Would you tell me?
Would you tell me?
Would you tell me?

But I can't let you in,
And I can't keep you out,
I wait for life to win,
But it never comes around

And I can't hear you call,
And I can't hear me shout,
I wait for it to break,
But it never comes around.

And I'm lonely,
I'm lonely,
I'm lonely.
