I stopped into a club
Everyone was there
Their knickers in a knot
The best they'd ever seen
I wished that it was me
It's bleaker than you think
Give a guy a break
To drive a man to drink
A party at a friend's
I thought I'd bring a tape
And listen for a while
They said that it was fine
I said it wasn't me
Once upon a time
Until I made it big
Disappointed now
To look them in the face
They wish it wasn't me
It's bleaker than you think
Give a guy a break
To drive a man to drink
I used to hold you close
You never told a soul
The details of your life
The neighbor and his wife
And you can't look at me
It's bleaker than you think
Give a guy a break
To drive a man to drink
Could song be an alibi
But now that the well is dry

To really love?
Do I?
I cycled by your house
I see you all the time
I tried to call your name
I call you once a day
And told them it was me
I filled a plastic bag
I threw it off a bridge
The water made it sink
I wished that I could swim
I wished that it was me.
It's bleaker than you think
Give a guy a break
To drive a man to drink
Give a guy a break
To drive a man to drink
To drive a man to drinkI stopped into a club
Everyone was there
Their knickers in a knot
The best they'd ever seen
I wished that it was me
It's bleaker than you think
Give a guy a break
To drive a man to drink
A party at a friend's
I thought I'd bring a tape
And listen for a while
They said that it was fine
I said it wasn't me
Once upon a time
Until I made it big
Disappointed now
To look them in the face
They wish it wasn't me
It's bleaker than you think
Give a guy a break
To drive a man to drink
I used to hold you close
You never told a soul
The details of your life
The neighbor and his wife
And you can't look at me
It's bleaker than you think
Give a guy a break
To drive a man to drink
Could song be an alibi
But now that the well is dry

To really love?
Do I?
I cycled by your house
I see you all the time
I tried to call your name
I call you once a day
And told them it was me
I filled a plastic bag
I threw it off a bridge
The water made it sink
I wished that I could swim
I wished that it was me.
It's bleaker than you think
Give a guy a break
To drive a man to drink
Give a guy a break
To drive a man to drink
To drive a man to drink
