The end, it shouldn't end like this
it's the bottle she is merciless
she's stringing me along
she's stringing me along

And how could such a palace house
deceit and malice
there's something wrong here
there's something wrong here

As the words were chosen
his heart was frozen
his soul had spoken
but it sounded all twisted and broken

Years and years ago
they delivered the final blow
and suddenly his life ain't worth a damn

There were ghosts
and they lit up this town
but they left
when they sold off the underground
we ain't welcome here no more

As the words were chosen
his heart was frozen
his soul had spoken
but it sounded all twisted and broken

I, I won't let you down
it's my first day back in town
but my skin is six feet underground
and everything is different now

The end, it shouldn't end like this
it's the bottle, she is merciless
she's stringing me along
she's stringing me along again

As the words were chosen
his heart was frozen
his soul had spoken
but it sounded all twisted and broken

    General Commentthis is an amazing song. his voice is so perfect for it. it reminds me a tiny bit of the song "ghost town" by the specials, only twenty times better.
    it's my favourite song by devotchka.
