Lyrics

I saw her face in a crowd
She was hiding in the corner of the room
I could see the monkey on her back
It was laughing in the gloom

And just beneath her skin
Nobody could see
Shadows within she said “Do you remember me?

But I’m burnt out and there’s no feeling
And there’s bitter music in my head

Bet I’ve tasted more than you could ever handle
Sing a sad song”, she said
“Sing a sad song”, she said

“It’s been a long time coming
But I’m cold blooded in defeat
But now I’ve scorned the main I trusted
I’m the servant of deceit

But I’m nobody’s ball and chain
No one’s draggin’ me around
I can go anywhere, I could have a life to live
Have a life to live…

But I’m burnt out and there’s no feeling
And there’s bitter music in my head
Bet I’ve tasted more than you could ever handle
Sing a sad song”, she said
“Sing a sad song”, she said

She’s heading somewhere
Somewhere I have never been
Who can stop her now
She’s riskin’ everything

Swallowed by the night
I wonder where she’s goin’ to
Where she’s goin’ to

“I’m burnt out and there’s no feeling
And there’s bitter music in my head
Bet I’ve tasted more than you could ever handle
Sing a sad song”, she said
“Sing a sad song”, she said
