Beat myself up and talk myself down
My dirty past is spread all over town
Like a black cloud
Or a demon that comes when I call
And I'll drink till I don’t know my very own name
And the block sells the memories that wound up my brain
Till the pain goes away
And I'm left feeling nothing at all

Nobody is leaving the light on for me
No use pretending that there oughta be
Someone who'll lie in my cold company
And take me as I am

And there must be a place
There must be a time
When everything started to slip out of line
And the rings on their fingers
Meant more then a cheap piece of gold
Now I don't bother to look at their hands
Nor at the women who once were my friends
I can pressure these tears
And pretend that I never grow old

Nobody is leaving the light on for me
No use pretending that there oughta be
Someone who'll lie in my cold company
And take me as I am

So leave me alone
Let me go my own way
And don't try to save me from moral decay
Just pay the next round
And I'll drink to a happy old day

Nobody is leaving the light on for me
No use pretending that there's gonna be
Someone who'll lie in my cold company
And take me as I am
And take me as I am
Who's gonna take me as I am?
