Joan Armatrading – When I Get It Right lyrics

You always say
When I just messed up
Did bad
Done wrong
Gone too far
Caused such pain
Such shame
I'm illegal
See one sided
No fair
A sin there
Act queer
Odd ball

I mishandle
You trample
So strong
Wear crown
Under foot
Put upon
Hold down

Hey when I get it right
Will you tell me please
I wanna know

You always say no
You don't mean yes
No way
Hold out
Turn around
Two refusals
Deaf ear
Turned here
Not want
Leave room
All fault here
Shake head
Drop dead
