Tell me a secret
Tell me a lie
Tell me the truth if you have to
Say what you see fit
But don't ask me why
Love never seems to last you.

In times like these
It's hard to keep a man off his knees
In times like these
It's hard to keep a man off his knees.

Over a barrel
Under a spell
Money's the demon that drives you
Limping through heaven
Or running through hell
Happiness smiles but denies you.

In times like these
It's hard to keep a man off his knees
In times like these
It's hard to keep a man off his knees.

Nothing before you
Nothing behind
Thoughtlessly chasing the thunder
Travelling lightly
Travelling blind
Never detouring to wonder why.

Tell me a secret
Tell me a lie
Tell me the truth if you have to
Say what you see fit
But don't ask me why
Love never seems to last you.

In times like these
It's hard to keep a man off his knees
In times like these
It's hard to keep a man off his knees.

Nothing before you
Nothing behind
Thoughtlessly chasing the thunder
Travelling lightly
Travelling blind
Never detouring to wonder why.
