about

This track is taken from the album Paul Liddell & Delphians - LIVE. The album was recorded at a gig in a tiny room upstairs at The Grey Horse pub in Whitburn Village, Sunderland. There were only 80 people at the gig. I hope you're enjoying the intimate vibe of the album. Thanks!

lyrics

She's a beautiful lady/but she's got no gums
She's crippled by passion/and tar on the lungs
A true love for the bottle/from the bottom up
She's your new best friend/when she's out of luck

Scratch my back so I cut you loose/lost your luck to find your noose
It didn't feel like giving up/but I will not tie you up

I will not break the formula/will not break your neck
Because it's over.
Always give your love away/make the same mistake
When you're sober
Receeding to a second son/I don't need your love to tell me how long
'Cos I know you're long gone
To tell me how long

When you drowned in your drinking/we didn't hang you out to dry
You live where all things wither/with curtains closed and too much time
The way that you walk/you'd think that you ran the world
But all you have is nickel/and rings and reams of plastic pearls

Scratch my back so I cut you loose/lost your luck to find your noose
It didn't feel like giving up/but I will not tie you up

I will not break the formula/will not break your neck
Because it's over.
Always give your love away/make the same mistake
When you're sober
Receeding to a second son/I don't need your love to tell me how long

Busy being yourself/didn't notice you were someone else
Vendetta/forever
