I packed my bags and looked to the west
Kissed her picture twenty times
Take some clothes and a deep breath
Go commit the perfect crime

I didn't ask for much but now it's much too late
If she can’t help me now then there’s no time to waste
I will not fail us now, if you just wait you’ll see

I will not let us down, I will get myself free
I will get myself free as the day that you found me
Before I got caught in this mess that’s around me it won’t happen again

The first night I took one to the chest,
Dancing on the borderline.
I wrecked the mood and I must confess,
Missed the picture every time.

I didn’t ask for much but now it’s much too late,
If she can’t help me now then there’s no time to waste
I will not fail us now, if you just wait you’ll see

I will not let us down, I will get myself free
I will get myself free as the day that you found me
Before I got caught in this mess that’s around me it won’t happen again

I guess it’s just like me to get real sentimental before I leave
And I guess it’s just like me to get real sentimental before I leave
(We write off love and then we’re off)

I guess it’s just like me to get real sentimental before I leave
And I guess it’s just like me to get real sentimental before I leave
(We write off love and then we’re off)

I didn’t ask for much but now it’s much too late,
If she can’t help me now then there’s no time to waste
I will not fail us now, if you just wait you’ll see

I will not let us down, I will get myself free
I will get myself free, I will get myself
Free as the day that you found me
Before I got caught in this mess that’s around me
