I Confess

by the English Beat

 

Just out of spite,

I confess I've ruined three lives

Now don't sleep so tight

Because I didn't care till I found out that one of them was mine.



Night after night time time after time.

Done too much of both types of w(h)ining.

Still wasn't right fight after fight

Till "Get out of my life get away from me get away from that gun"



"No it's not a joke it's cards on the table time

Yes I could have phoned

I could have spoke

But how to break the news without breaking your heart

Being dead don't hurt,

No only dieing

Cards on the table time,

Sometimes it's right to say goodnight."



Always searching for paradise,

I'll admit that I'm good as blind

Darling I confess yes I've ruined three lives

And didn't care till I found out that one of them was mine.



I confess

Our love seems like a punishment

And I confess,

If it's all the same to you I'll stay indifferent



I confess I confess I confess

I confess I confess I confess.



No-one wins and there's no denying,

Don't pretend like you don't know why,

Just a little word here a little push there Darling

I confess look I confess that I don't really care



I confess I confess I confess.



Out like a light,

Another boy who's given up trying,

Blinded by fright,

He screams my life's not open,

Please get out,

I know I'm shouting,

I like to shout.



It's not a joke it's cards on the table time

It's not a joke it's cards on the table time

I could have phoned

I could have spoke

But how to break the news without breaking your heart

Being dead don't hurt,

No only dieing

Cards on the table time,

Sometimes it's right to say goodnight."



Always searching for paradise,

I'll admit that I'm good as blind

Darling I confess yes I've ruined three lives

And didn't care till I found out that one of them was mine.



I confess

I deserve some type of punishment

I confess

If it's all the same to you I'll stay indifferent

I confess I confess I confess

I confess I confess I confess

I confess I confess I confess

I confess I confess I confess

I confess I confess I confess
