[Verse 1]
I've been sad and I've been broke
That people call me a joke
I've done wrong and I've done right
Lost every will to fight
I've been searching for what love is
Is it a story written for me?
Is it alive or barely breathing?
Is it this very song I'm singing

[Chorus]
Or a raspberry layer cake
When no one else gives a damn
Staying out way too late
Playing every card you have
Is learning to fly learning to walk
Starting over again
When everything you have is taken away
Like a lie on your wedding day

[Verse 2]
I walk with a limp and my legs are bowed
I was born that way though I wasn't sure
I was made a bastard son
By a outlaw father who collected guns
I've been hoping for love to fill
A hole left in me, it's growing deeper still
Playing records and singing songs
Begging the crowd to sing along

[Chorus]
Or a raspberry layer cake
When no one else gives a damn
Staying out way too late
Playing every card you have
Is learning to fly learning to walk
Starting over again
When everything you have is taken away
Like a lie on your wedding day

[Bridge]
A lie on your wedding day
Lie on your wedding day
Lie on your wedding day

[Chorus]
Or a raspberry layer cake
When no one else gives a damn
Staying out way too late
Playing every card you have
Is learning to fly learning to walk
Starting over again
When everything you have is taken away
Like a lie on your wedding day

[Outro]
It's just a lie on your wedding day
A lie on your wedding day
