This morning is Monday
Where are you now
Teasing my memory
Teaching me how to lay low
When I don't want to

Your love is elusive
This I know now
It's making me crazy
Leaving me out in the open
When I don't want to

I don't know why
You do that to me

The moments of pleasures
Never do last
Are gone like a suitcase
Full of your past
Long gone and in a hurry

(CHORUS)
Baby, I can't go through this again
I don't need to go down
More then I've already been
Just like a wild fire
You're running all over town
As much as you burn me, baby
I should be ashes by now

The second street beggars
Alone in they life
Drunk on a sidewalk
To hide from the night like I am
They're just like I am

(CHORUS)

Just like a wild fire
You're running all over town
As much as you burn me, baby
I should be ashes by now

Aah, aah
Should be ashes by now
Aah, aah
