Lust of the libertines
Is really quite tame
But it rages quite nice here beside you
And your lust for fame
Well fames such a sinister game I know
It could all end this way then
Some things won't be the same
Oh I'm just a face
And a name on a page
I'll be soundly sleeping, soundly sleeping
I'll sleep right through that age

Cos I can deal with all the blood on my shoes
And the holes in my soul
My spirit is tainted
All my tears are painted
Just so long as you, you don't forget to, wha-a-o
Cut me on the wall
By the graffiti of all the things I just couldn't say
Shove me up the wall
Oh my darling was the kind of loving now
You've left me in the family way again

The dust on my tambourine
Really can't be explained
I need to shake it more often
I need to shake away the blame
Well fames such a sinister game I know
The taste of goulash in your mouth
As you stumble of stage
Forget-Me-Not's bloom on this day then
But they wither with age

Cos I can deal with all the blood on my shoes
And the holes in my soul
My spirit is tainted
All my tears are painted
Just so long as you, you don't forget to, wha-a-o
Cut me on the wall
By the graffiti of all the things I just couldn't say
Shove me up the wall
Oh my darling was the kind of loving now
You've left me in the family way again

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

(I did my best)
