I bring myself down by making the things up
I imagine you gone
Russian roulette
Like dancing with death
I carry on

I'll take the blame
I know I've got it wrong
But if you high tail
I just can't carry on

The blood in my veins
Runs thin when I think
Are you with somebody
Opening doors
Moonlight love
And the promise you promise

The fear inside
Is stronger than the truth
It grows day by day
By night time I'm confused

Oh help me
You can go on you can go on
Can't go on
You can go on you can go on

I'm a prisoner in chains
Confound these thoughts
I could kill somebody
Like a lamb
Like a dove
You lay down while I shout
Accepting your fate

I'll take the blame
I know I've got it wrong
But if you high tail
I just can't carry on

Oh help me
You can go on you can go on
Can't go on
You can go on you can go on

Oh help me
You can go on you can go on

I bring myself down by making things up
I imagine you gone
Russian Roulette
Like dancing with death
I carry on

Oh help me
You can go on you can go on
Can't go on
You can go on you can go on
