Gutterball – Please Don't Hold Back lyrics

40-watt bulb fills half the room
And then the other half is filled with gloom
Fontella Bass is on the stereo
I wish someone would come along and rescue me
Please don't hold back
There's nothing missing
There's nothing you lack
Please don't hold back
There's just a few things that you can't forget
And then you stub them out like your cigarette
Shape yourself until you think it's right
And then you're still afraid to go out at night
Late at night when the city sleeps
Villains laugh and lovers weep
Eyes sealed shut and we don't let on
That we're counting every second until the dawn
