The Jacobites – Bethlehem Castle lyrics

Bethlehem castle
I couldn't understand
You want to hold me to a promise
You wanted to hold my hand

Bethlehem castle
I couldn't force my heart
To fall down to its broken knees
And tear myself apart

Bethlehem castle
I'm cutting up my books
Looking for the rescue flight
I'm relying on my looks

Bethlehem castle
Seems so far away
Going all for Lucy
And you're learning how to play

Waiting for your friend to come
And you know he never will
You sold your passport to a chariot driver
And now he's footing your bill

Never seem to think about it
When you're sitting in your room
Well I'm waiting for the rescue flight
And they're waiting for you

Got a lot of nerve to say
You are my friend
You've got a lot of nerve
To cut me off like this

Don't you ever look inside
The magazines you buy
Don't you ever wonder why
You always miss the bus

Don't you ever do the walls
With all your stupid friends
Don't you ever want to sleep
With every single boy
Don't you ever want to sleep
With every single girl

I know I don't
I know I don't
Can't catch me like that

I know I don't
I know I don't
Can't catch me like that
