I've always tried to level with you eye to eye

I finally found the devil in you by and by

But I don't really want to be the

Last one singing the blues



When it comes to fiction you're the best I've met

But all those little lies

Are gonna get you yet

But I don't really want to be the

Last one singin' the blues



(*) You say that you love me

But if you really love me

Then why do you treat me this way

Your game is that you're gone again

It's off and then it's on again

Well someday I won't play



If all I do is catch you in the same old lies

I'll just have to look at you

With different eyes

'Cause I don't really want to be

The last one singin' the blues



Repeat (*)



Well fate will soon determine you're the one to lose

I'll be the one who's handin' you your walkin' shoes

'Cause I don't really want to be

The last one singin' the blues

Yeah, I don't really want to be

The last one singing the blues
