lyrics

I woke up on a Sunday morning,
Another night gone by,
I had too much - yeah I burned it up,
But I still woke with the light,

Arms over arms,
Legs over legs,
Night after night,
Day after day.

And when you left me,
You went away as quiet as Sunday morning came,
I didn’t hear you leave,
But I knew by then that you’d be way down 8th Avenue,
Still I found it strange,
How I fell under your spell,
How fast a spell could fade,
Would I ever know why -
Seems every step you took,
Put you farther from my mind.

Yeah you got me, you really did,
Had me up against the wall,
And there’s no one, who will ever be safe,
From your gift for withdrawal,

Arms over arms,
Legs over legs,
Night after night,
Every single day.

And when you left me,
You went away as quiet as Sunday morning came,
I didn’t hear you leave,
But I knew by then that you’d be way down 8th Avenue,
Still I found it strange,
How I fell under your spell,
How fast a spell could fade,
Would I ever know why -
Seems every step you took,
Put you farther from my mind.
Well that’s the gist of it,
It’s the same old shit,
She hangs like smoke,
I take the hit,
And then my hands fall to her hips,
And just when I thought I was over this,
She comes back around,
In, she’s out,
And I wonder why we fuck about,
Or if you’re really happy now,
We never said goodbye.

Seems every step you took…
Put you farther from my mind.
