Marianne Faithfull – For Beauty's Sake lyrics

What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
What are you takin'?
What are you takin' for beauty's sake?

What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
What are you takin'?
What are you takin' for beauty's sake?

My heart's achin' 'cause I can't ignore you
My heart's breakin' 'cause I can't reward you
What can I do 'cause you stepped inside my soul?

Feel like you're dyin' for beauty's sake
Say that you're lyin' for beauty's sake
Who cares what you're feeling?
You've lost and you're dealing for beauty's sake

In your circle you hold supreme sway
Can you imagine not getting your own way?
What can I do 'cause you stepped inside my soul?

What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
What are you takin'?
What are you takin' for beauty's sake?

My heart's achin' 'cause I can't ignore you
My heart's breakin' 'cause I can't reward you
What can I do 'cause you stepped inside my soul?

You stand astride the city takin' it all in
Lyin' before the fire, admiring your own skin
Beautiful and dumb, avarice and handsome
What can I do? What can I do?
What can I do 'cause you stepped inside my soul?

What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
What are you takin'?
What are you takin' for beauty's sake?

What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
What are you takin'?
What are you takin' for beauty's sake?

What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
What are you takin'?
What are you takin' for beauty's sake?
