Lyrics
I feel upset
Let`s do some celebrating
Come on honey, don`t hesitate now
Needed you, you withdrew, I was so forsaken
Ah, but now the tables have turned, my move
I believe I`ll be taking my revenge
Sweet revenge

I thought you were some perfect read-out
Some d-digital delay had obscured
and phased my view of the wicked hand you played
Ah, the sands and hands of time have run out, run out, ah you better face it
Ah, this thing`s run amok, this luck
I do know how to replace it with revenge
Oh, sweet revenge

I gave you a wristwatch, baby
You wouldn't even give me the time of day
You want to know what makes me tick
Now it`s me that`s got precious little to say
For the ghosts of our love have dried have died
There`s no use faking it
Ah, the spirits gonna close in on you tonight
High time I was taking my revenge
Sweet revenge
Revenge. Revenge

All the gold and silver couldn't measure up my love for you
It`s so immaterial
I don`t wait around for you. [ ] [ ]
Nobody gets anything. Nobody gets nothing.
No [ ] don`t leave me no space in your little boat
You ain't gonna need no you, ain't gonna need no little boat
You are living on my time my dear
Revenge. Sweet revenge. Sweet sweet revenge...
