Watch Loretta taste the wine
Kick the actor from behind
Sprawl across the sofa, then
Speak of foreign towns again
Like the loner, seek Marlene
Ask the waitress: Where you been?
She says: Don't give me no lies
I've been inside your head at least three times
Three times

I never lost control
It was a very strange show
And all I ever got was oh
Are you never gonna go?

Spy Ramona by the door
Calling me the perfect whore
Only sweet Loretta speaks
Wipe that humour from your cheeks
And as the makeup starts to fade
She doesn't wait, she hides away
Noticing her friends had gone
She starts to ask: Oh what went wrong?
Wrong

I never lost control
It was a very strange show
All I ever got was oh
Are you never gonna go?

For Loretta one
She only played for fun
She gave her life away
Counted hundreds, came to none

I never lost control
It was a very strange show
All I ever got was oh
Are you never gonna go?
