A barefoot whore
Walking by a famous clock
Against her door
Waiting for the chimes to start
Chorus:
Can't sink this town
Pull the gates and bring it down
I'd gladly drown and let you leave me lonely
She pulled the cork
On a night like this she never works
I said, "No more."
Do I think I'm understood with her?
Chorus
Can't sink this town
Looking back across the sea
I'd gladly drown
I thought you said you were lonely
Tell you what
Is a broken promise cheap enough
It's all I got,
Look so sad, talk so tough
Chorus:
Can't sink this town
Looking back across the sea
I'd gladly drown
I thought you said you were lonely
I thought you said you were lonely
I thought you said you were lonely
