The Struts – Doin' Time lyrics
Lying in a single bed
Last nights a haze that I'd rather forget
The money's going straight up my nose
Waking up in yesterdays clothes

I know, I can't explain
I do what I do, then it leaves me in pain
I cannot put you down
You lift me off the ground
Snowball and chain, locked up insane

Because I'm doin' my time for you (doin' time)
I'm selling my soul for you
I'm doing my time (doin' time, doin' time)

Stepping out into the town
Mother says to me that I gotta cut down
Promise her I won't be a slave
But I'm dancing with death and now I'm digging my grave

I know, I can't explain
I do what I do, then it leaves me in pain

Because I'm doing my time for you (doin' time)
I'm selling my soul for you
I'm doing my time (doin' time, doin' time)
Oh I'm doing my time baby
(doin' time, doin' time)
(tick tock tick tock)
Because I'm doing my time for you (doin' time)
I'm selling my soul for you
I'm doing my time
(doin' time, doin' time, doin' time, doin' time, doin' time, doin' time, doin' time, doin' time)
