Might as well call ahead
To turn off the church light
We'll tell them that we're staying out with our friends
We won't be home tonight
Only stopped off to change
Left my wounded ways
Took the old pamphlets out of my coat
You can't be sure these days
You can't be sure these days
You can't be sure these days

Oh, I can't afford it
Nothing left to lose

People have their needs
These are lonely days
Reach out their hearts like an open palm
Hunger is a pain
Set yourself up to fall
In trying to ease the pain
Don't want to get hurt anymore
I'll look the other way
I'll look the other way
I'll look the other way

Oh, I can't afford it
Nothing left to do
Oh, I can't afford it
Nothing left to lose

When I was younger, and I had a friend
Opened up my heart and spent my trust
Until the end
But things have changed and,
My friend's not here
But that's all past and tomorrow gets no tears

Please don't ask of me
To fill some empty space
If I had something left, I'd give it to you
But that's not the case
Got a busted light
No more love or hate
I spent too much on my young illusions
That was my mistake
That was my mistake
That was my mistake

Oh, I can't afford it
Nothing left to do
Oh, I can't afford it
Nothing left to lose

Oh, I can't afford it
Nothing left to do
Oh, I can't afford it
Nothing left to lose
