If it's not with you
There is no thing that makes wanna settle down
I thought it was a bad cough
But never knew how much illusions hide a torture
Lonesome & forsaken with no gratitude
Who's goin' to tell, devotion's not your problem
It's me against a wardrobe
Focused on the pain to see how we can get along
Doing things, getting better
I'll move on
Together
The more I try the less I care about it
Together
And if you don't see yourself in the mirror, forget what you did
Together
The more I try the less I care about it
I'm giving up my conscience for another
The only one I want is you
Things I wouldn't do
Try to treat me like a friend, get another late call
I'll lose you for another
Cause you can't believe how much your pleasure is a factor
Writing down the logic of my solitude
As far as I'm concerned I'd like to leave it random
I'm acting like an orphan
Let me get to know you better to make me less attracted
Doing things, getting better
I'll move on
Together
The more I try the less I care about it
Together
And if you don't see yourself in the mirror, forget what you did
Together
The more I try the less I care about it
I'm giving up my conscience for another
The only one I want is you
Parisians all gone
Words they're all gone
Let me tell you
Uh...uh...uh....
