Down on my luck once more
Out on a limb
Over the things I thought I knew for sure, and you
Yeah, you were fundamentally
Too flawed to give what you receive
And you believed that I was yours to keep

Then I tell myself
Hold on, slow down
Girl, is this me going back to scratch again?
And oh, you'll know it, at the dead of night
You're back to scratch, right back to scratch

Here in the heady days
Love on a whim
It's only a thing I'm sure
His daunting gaze will fade
Then I am left
On my lonesome
And I'm not as young as I'd like
My heart is slipping through my fingers
Though the hope of love still lingers
I just pray that he will find me now, today

And now wait a minute
Hold on, slow down
Girl, is this me going back to scratch again?
And oh, you'll know it, at the dead of night
You're back to scratch, right back to scratch

Now he's gone
I guess I'll carry on
There's nothing else that I can do
Suns will rise and set, and rains will fall
But when they fall on me
They won't on you
I can't hold on to this love
I'm going back to scratch again

And here I'm lying in this lonely night
I'm back to scratch again, again, again, again
And I can't hold on to this love
I'm going back to scratch again
And here I'm lying in this lonely night
I'm back to scratch
Right back to scratch
