I am drunk and on a ladder
Not the smartest way to start my night
You said I'd conquer my vertigo
That was a lie, that was a lie, that was a lie.

And when we got up to the roof
You opened a little flask of gin
Like idiots we both fell asleep there
Until the sun came up again.

I do the dumbest things for you
Why do I do the dumbest things for you?
I almost broke my collar bone
I didn't care; you were the most exciting thing I'd every known.

We both went out to the party
Down the long, grey, western road
You told the drunks I knew karate
That was a lie, that was a lie, that was a lie

They chased us through the city center
They chased us out to the east end
We had to hide behind the supermarket
Until the sun came out again

I do the dumbest things for you
Why do I do the dumbest things for you?
I would be safer on my own
I didn't care; you were the most exciting thing I'd ever known

We just missed the last bus home
So we walked it, fueled by adrenaline
And when I said I could do it all again
That was a lie, that was a lie, that was a lie

Your plans to make it big and conquer
Would put Napoleon to shame
I'm going to crawl up on the sofa
Until the sun goes down again

I do the dumbest things for you
Why do I do the dumbest things for you
I would be safer on my own
I didn't care, you were the most exciting thing I'd ever known

I do the dumbest things for you
Why do I do the dumbest things for you
I would be safer on my own
I didn't care, you were the most exciting thing I'd ever known
