Pete Doherty – Lady Don't Fall Backwards lyrics

Once upon a time
When the cold wind that blows
When the cold wind that blows in my heart
It was a summer breeze and she
Would meet me in Chinatown for opium and tea
And she always brought me flowers
But I spared you those old ballads
Or songs that I couldn't play
But every giro day
She'd dress me like a lady boy
And take me out of the way
Don't let the horse chase the new deal away, no
If we make love in the morning
I see your eyes look like two marbles in your head

Lady don't you fall backwards
C'mon and fall into my arms
Aw, don't you fall backwards
Well, I wouldn't want for you to come to any harm
Now tell me, if darkness comes
Then I will sing you a song
And I will love you forever
At least 'til morning comes
Lady don't you fall backwards
Come on and fall into my arms
Come on and fall into my arms
