Self Abuse

Written by Keith Mouland

Hey couldn’t you jump off the slide
Or was burning out part of the ride
You used to wear love’s outrageous shoes
But now they’ve given up trying to fit you

Tell me what do you think is gonna happen now
The golden days are gone and the night’s come around
Sometimes I lie awake and I think of you
And I could cry that someone had so much to lose, yeah

And self abuse is up to you
Self abuse is up to you that’s fair do’s
Well I guess I’m never gonna see that brand new hair-do
You know selfish thoughts like that are what I cling to

Yeah ‘cos now you’re gone something’s wrong
And you’ve been away far too long
You spent too many nights in those city rooms
With those dirty boys telling you goodbye
Leaving you behind leaving you behind

Well won’t you tell me what do you think’s gonna happen now
The golden days are gone and the night’s come around
And I still lie awake just thinking of you
You know I could cry that someone had so much to lose
Yeah so much to lose.
