Could you spare me please
If only just one day
Let me off my knees
'Cos underneath these clothes
I have a heart that beats
I'm not just flesh and bone

But go on, take me lower if you're able
Kick me while I'm already down
While you sweep your dirt underneath the table
You know I'm not the only sinner in this town

So go on, throw the first stone
Come on, get the last word
'Cos it won't be the first time
I've been on my own

'Cos if you think you're perfect
If you've never been blessed
If you've never felt alone
Go on, throw the first stone

Tell me what it takes
For me to make you see
That you made your own mistakes
Is this your way to work through
The fact that you're a lot like me
And I'm a lot like you

Go on, take me lower if you're able
Kick me while I'm already down
While you sweep your dirt underneath the table
You know I'm not the only sinner in this town

So go on, throw the first stone
Come on, get the last word
'Cos it won't be the first time
I've been on my own

'Cos if you think you're perfect
If you've never been blessed
If you've never felt alone
Then go on, throw the first stone

And I guess you won't be happy till I bleed
And I guess somehow that gives you what you need

Is there no one else that you can patronise
Maybe someone your own size

So go on, throw the first stone
Come on, get the last word
'Cos it won't be the first time
I've been on my own

And if you think you're perfect
If you've never been blessed
If you've never felt so alone
Then go on, throw the first stone
