Cutting Crew – Don't Let It Bring You Down lyrics

Eede/Macmichael

Make me a promise you can't keep
Tell a joke that's not too deep
Cause I'm out of double meanings

Throw me a rope that I can't reach
As you lay back on your beach
I'm not waving, only drowning
But don't let it bring you down
Don't let it bring you down

Who asked you for your advice?
Who asked you to interfere?
All my life you kept the lights out
Now it seems so clear
Who asked you to criticise?
I don't need no volunteer
So when they come to put the fires out
I might not be here

Don't let it bring you down
Don't let it bring you down

Buy me a beer that I can taste
Like the kisses that you waste
Cause I'm out of legal tender

Big deal, there's a little rust in my piano
A few more lines upon my face
There's corrosion in my fingers
But don't let it bring you down
Don't let it bring you down

Who asked you for your advice?
Who asked you to interfere?
All my life you kept the fire on
It still gets cold in here
Who asked you to sympathise?
I don't need your volant tears
So when they come to turn the lights out
I might not be here

Don't let it bring you down
Don't let it bring you down
