Love is better
When you're blind and you can't see the cracks
I was the number one contender
Now my bitter tears won't leave no tracks
Nothing lasts forever
We used to paint this town red - now all I see is black
I know you think you're doing better
But the winner of the rat race is still a rat

Oh, am I speaking in tongues?
Have I got it all wrong?
With you and me
You and me
The devil cares for his own
So there's a place for us both
You and me
You and me

I see a vapour trail above me
I know the next move's mine and the odds are stacked
If I could tell you my story
It would only make you doubt everything we ever had

Oh, am I speaking in tongues?
Have I got it all wrong?
With you and me
You and me
The devil cares for his own
So there's a place for us both
You and me
You and me

Oh, every nest you've ever kicked
And every knife I let you twist
Feels like a wrecking ball
A wrecking ball
Oh, every nest you've ever kicked
And every knife I let you twist
You'll learn

Is it all for nothing?
Is it all for nothing?
Is it all for nothing?
Is it all for nothing?
The web you weave unravels itself
It's all for nothing
It's all for nothing

Oh, am I speaking in tongues?
Have I got it all wrong?
With you and me
You and me
The devil cares for his own
So there's a place for us both
You and me
You and me

Oh, every nest you've ever kicked
And every knife I let you twist
Feels like a wrecking ball
A wrecking ball
Oh, every nest you've ever kicked
And every knife I let you twist
You'll learn

It's all for nothing
It's all for nothing
The web you weave unravels itself
