I've always tried to level with you eye to eye
I finally found the devil in you by and by
But I don't really want to be the
Last one singing the blues
When it comes to fiction you're the best I've met
But all those little lies
Are gonna get you yet
But I don't really want to be the
Last one singin' the blues
You say that you love me
But if you really love me
Then why do you treat me this way
Your game is that you're gone again
It's off and then it's on again
Well someday I won't play
If all I do is catch you in the same old lies
I'll just have to look at you
With different eyes
'Cause I don't really want to be
The last one singin' the blues
You say that you love me
But if you really love me
Then why do you treat me this way
Your game is that you're gone again
It's off and then it's on again
Well someday I won't play
(Don't forget the break)
Well fate will soon determine you're the one to lose
I'll be the one who's handin' you your walkin' shoes
'Cause I don't really want to be
The last one singin' the blues
Yeah, I don't really want to be
The last one singing the blues
