“An ending fitting for the start
you twist and tore our love apart,
your light fingers threw the dark,
shattered the lamp and into the darkness it cast us …”

“No, you've got it the wrong way round!
You shut me out and blamed it on the brown.”
cornered the boy kicked out at the world … the world kicked back
a lot fucking harder now …

If you want to try, If you want to try
there’s no worse you could do (oh, oh, oh)
I know you lie, I know you lie,
I'm still in love with you (oh, oh, oh)

Can’t take me anywhere (I'll take you anywhere)
You can't take me anywhere (I can't take you anywhere)
I’ll take you anywhere you want to go.

Oh, you can’t stand me now; you can’t stand me now,
You can’t stand me now; you can’t stand me now,
You can’t stand me now; you can’t stand me now,
You can’t stand me now; you can’t stand me now …

Are we enough to keep it together?
Or do we just keep on pretending … and hope our luck is never ending …
You tried to pull the wool I wasn’t feeling too clever,
you take all that they’re lending
until you needed mending …

If you want to try, If you want to try
there’s no worse you could do (oh, oh, oh)
I know you lie,
All you do is make me cry,
All these words they aren’t true (oh, oh, oh)

Can’t take me anywhere (I can’t take you anywhere)
You can’t take me anywhere (I will take you anywhere)
I’ll take you anywhere you want to go

oh, you can’t stand me now; you can’t stand me now,
You can’t stand me now; you can’t stand me now,
You can’t stand me now; you can’t stand me now,
You can’t stand me now; you can’t stand me now,
You can’t stand me now; you can’t stand me now,
You can’t stand me now; you can’t stand me now,
You can’t stand me now; you can’t stand me now,
No, you can’t stand me now! (ow, ow, ow, ow)
You can’t stand me now.
