Well I feel just like a stranger
I don't sleep at all anymore
And the arms that used to hold me
Well now they done me harm
And I feel just like a murderer
And I feel just like a gun
I've been shakin in the hand of somebody
Whos finally had enough

As you step out into the city
No one to find you or recognise
As your black heels kick out the beat
Of my heart in perfect time
Singing la la la la la lala la
Look at you saving my life
Singing la la la la la lala la
Tonight you're saving my life, yeah

Now I've had the saints and patience
And I wait on the telephone
I have bills for this
Tabs for that
Something that used to resemble a soul
So wont anybody take my hand
And wont anybody ease my ache
And I still love rock n roll
And I still call somebody baby

As you step out into the city
No one to find you or recognise
As your black heels kick out the beat
Of my heart in perfect time
Singing la la la la la la la la
Look at you saving my life
Singing la la la la la lala la
Tonight you're saving my life, yeah
Singing la la la la la la la la
Lean on the end of the knife
Singing la la la la la la la la
Tonight you're saving my life, yeah
