The Last Shadow Puppets – Black Plant lyrics

He bit your lip
And on the tip
Of your tongue
Was your view
The heavy belt
With how you felt
In ways
That suited you

The paper cuts
From the love letters
You never gave him
Could not meet
Your new found needs
A misbehaving lie

Why
Why would you say sorry
Oh, why would you say
Why would you say

You said there
Was a nagging lack of smiles
When dancing on your back
Tenderness a plenty but
That wasn't what you craved
His whole thin heart desire
Start to make demands
And he adored you
Would be a fool
To make your plans with her

Why would you say sorry
Oh, why would you
Why would you say sorry
Oh, why would you say sorry
Oh, why would you

When it's just one
Of many bullets
You will bite
While waiting
For a ray of light
Waiting
For a ray of light
Waiting
For a ray of light

The paper cuts
From the love letters
You never gave him
Could not meet
Your new found meat
A misbehaving lie

Why
Why would you say sorry
Oh, why would you
Why would you say sorry
Oh, why would you say sorry
Oh, why would you
Why would you say sorry
