Samantha... You swore,
You'd never turned that trick before.
Keep waiting... For war,
You'll never win, you'll lose again.

I won't swing the balance in your favour...
Your defeat is my favourite flavour...

Samantha...
You wore me out.
Samantha...
You used me up.

Samantha... Your war,
Was a lost cause before I came.
Keep praying... Pray for,
The pretty things you won't get back.

Steal my soul and stab my back once more...
But you'll come from dark alleyways to score...

Once more...

Samantha...
You wore me out.
Samantha...
You burned me down.

But look in my eyes, there's nothing there.
Goodbye...
Wanted you all, with my whole life.
Goodnight...
Wanted your life...

Samantha...

Well no one can regain,
Your innocence again,
And your sins are pouring down,
Like rain...

But I love your angry pain...

Go and hit the streets again,
Cause theres nothing here for you...

Leave the money by the bed,
In the gutter where you live!
And I'll throw it all away!
Yeah, I'll throw it in your face!

And if you were on fire,
I would just throw kerosene!
And I love so much I hate!
And I hate what you have seen of me!
Samantha!

(*Echoes*
You wore me out...
Samantha...
You used me up...
*Echoes*)

You used...
Oh, don't look back,
Baby, don't look back,
Baby, don't look back to me.

Baby, don't look back,
Baby, don't look back,
Baby, don't look back at me.

And I live in this hole,
And I die in this cage,
And, oh, you hold the keys to the zoo.

And I don't wanna go,
But I can't seem to come,
And it's not up to me,
It's up to you.

And the plane is on fire,
And we're all gonna die,
And we're all going down this time.

You can lead a whore to water,
You can lead a whore to freedom,
But you can't drink away whats mine.

Samantha...

    General CommentThese are the album lyrics posted. Courtney's used these much harsher alternate lyrics live:

    Samantha, you swore
    You never turned that trick before
    Keep waiting for a war
    You'll never win
    You'll lose again

    Watch her wrap her legs around this world
    Can't take that gutter from the girl

    Samantha
    You burned me out
    Samantha
    It's over now
    Samantha

    Your war
    Was a lost cause before I came
    Keep praying
    Pray for
    The pretty things you won't get back

    Watch her wrap her legs around this world
    Stab the gutter right out of that girl
    That girl

    Through villages of ether
    My crucifixion comes
    Will you sing my hallelujah?
    Will you tell me when it's done?

    Look in my eyes
    There's nothing there
    Goodbye
    I wanted you out of my whole life
    Goodnight
    And don't try to move

    People like you fuck people like me
    In order to avoid agony
    People like you fuck people like me
    In order to avoid suffering

    People like you fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you
    Fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you
    Fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you
    Fuck people like me

    (Fuck people like you)
    Leave your money by the bed
    (Fuck people like me)
    (Fuck people like you)
    In the gutter where you live
    (Fuck people like me)
    And I throw it all away
    And I throw it in your face
    And if you were on fire
    I would just throw kerosene
    Cause I love so much I hate
    And I hate what you have seen in me

    Samantha

    So you think that you could save him
    And we know that someone died
    Oh, an unkindness of ravens
    And we know that Mary lied
    And through villages of ether
    Oh, my crucifixion comes
    Will you sing my hallelujah?
    Will you tell me when it's done?

    People like you fuck people like me
    In order to avoid agony
    People like you fuck people like me
    In order to avoid suffering

    People like you fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you
    Fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you
    Fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you
    Fuck people like me
    Fuck people like you

    General CommentAbout a girl that loved her Brother and Mother, a Mother that was hooked on Heroin and Cocaine that had 4 kids. The first one to be giving away, ask of the father the mother would say a mistake a sin i will pay for this one was the icon i gave away...
    The second not long after the first A lost soul with a family and a dad of fame in one hand and a Dad of mystery in the other??? Hooked on heroin young in life with cocaine, speed and pills with this he dies before his time. He lived a good life a fight till the end for love and understanding from a good friend. Along comes the third a girl so blond with daddy on coke and mommy spoon in hand of heroin. Born, of foul creation Born, of sour milk Coke and filth Samantha with kids of her own most of time she is in jail and working the escort papers to pay for speed. With a hunger for money Watch her wrap her legs around this world.
    A girl sad over her brother dying while she was in Jail So you think that you could save him
    And we know that someone died Oh, an unkindness of ravens And we know that Mary lied the mother of the 4 kids so many lies... So dare she speak out Samantha you swore You never turned that trick before
    Keep waiting for a war
    You'll never win
    You'll lose again
    So dare she speak out And if you were on fire I would just throw kerosene Cause I love so much I hate
    And I hate what you have seen in me
    Lets not for get the 4th a boy in jail always in jail not much to speak of...
    Ha I thought it sounded good
