lyrics

[Intro]
You promised you'd always be true
You wronged me can't stop loving you
Along with my trust
You stole all of my heart
And still, I can't stop saving you

[Verse 1]
Get down!
Right now!
On the ground!
Introduce yourself to the tile!
I know, I know, I know, so much to handle
You ain't got no luck and no hero

I'm sorry I find this funny
Your meager attempt to stop me
But there's a knife in his back
Did the little lady do that?
Ain't got no luck and no hero

[Chorus]
This world it vibrates and here I am standing still
Watching these heads roll away
Talk of the nation!
It's newest sensation!
Say no? Share your lovers grave!
You thought I didn't know?
You thought I didn't know?

Well I could be king
You could be free
Oh, but this pardon, it comes with a fee
Only your word?
Don't be absurd!
Darling this world we could tear it apart!
Hell, it's already falling apart
Yeah, this world, let's tear it apart!

[Bridge]
You and me we make great partners
City's mine
It could be ours
I have waited long to show you
All this time
I've always been dreaming of you and me we make great partners

I thought I found you out
Found out what all the fuss was about
I give up
I'm done
You win
I have lost all the human I am

You've got me all shook up!
You've got me all shook up!
Now I'm gone!
Now I'm gone!

[Chorus]
Well I could be king
You could be free
Oh, but this pardon, it comes with a fee
Only your word?
Don't be absurd!
Darling this world we could tear it apart!
Hell, it's already falling apart
Yeah, this world, let's tear it apart!
Yeah, this world, let's tear it apart!
