I love you more than any man, but something's getting in the way
I do you harm because I can, for the second time today
Victims we are not of happenstance, but you're a victim all the same
Stuck inside a circumstance, with your confusion and your blame

And when I get drunk, you take me home and keep me safe from harm
When I get drunk, you take me home

I ask you for another second chance, but then I drink it all away
And I get bellicose when you react, for love, frustration and dismay
I was so delicate when we began, so tender when I spoke your name
But now I'm nothing but a partisan, to my compulsion and my shame

And when I get drunk, you take me home and keep me safe from harm
When I get drunk, you take me home

You know I'm grateful, I appreciate
But in fact it's baleful, how I suck you dry [3]
How I suck you
How I suck you dry [3]

I love you more than any man, but I seem to lay it all to waste
I do you harm because I can, with a joke in questionable taste
I've such duplicity at my command, so I keep on lying to your face
Then I run away to wonderland, disappear without a trace

When I get drunk, you take me home and keep me safe from harm
When I get drunk, you take me home

You know I'm grateful, I appreciate
But in fact it's baleful, how I suck you dry [3]
How I suck you
How I suck you dry [3]
