I'm a hopeless romantic You're a terrible flirt Cool and unfazed,
you're always amazed when someone gets hurt I live on the blue planet
that I saw in your eyes but now I can't stay knowing it's made
of beautiful lies but my sentimental melody like a long-lost lullabye
will ring in your ears down through the years bringing a tear to your eye
Goodbye Love can kill people, can't it Well it still might kill me
Each drop of rain is a glass of champagne It's sweet and it's free
When I drink I don't panic When I drink I don't die When I'm far gone
it's all just a song just beautiful lies...
