Ribbon Road lyrics


Sick At Heart

Who are we to cast aspersions
Who are we to want for more
But for all your carry-on and learning
There's nothing beats an open door
And the fire burning bright
And someone there at night

I'm sick of silly love songs
Of writing on the wall
I'm sick of being on me own
I'm well sick of it all

I'm sick of being down and out
Life pouring down the drain
I'm sick of everybody's doubt
Of soaking up the pain

I'm sick of talking rubbish
To pass the time of day
I'm sick of holding up the world
When it won't get out the way

It's been so long in coming
I've been away that long
I just can't stop the trouble
And now I'm not that strong

But who are we to cast aspersions
Who are we to want for more
But for all your carry-on and learning
There's nothing beats an open door
And the fire burning bright
And someone there at night

I'm sick of everybody's crimes
Of still watching the news
I'm sick of bloody rotten times
I'm sick of being used

I'm sick of silly love songs
That flatter to deceive
I'm sick of being such a fool
To ever have believed
I'm sick of being such a fool
To ever have believed

But who are we to cast aspersions
Who are we to want for more
But for all your carry-on and learning
There's nothing beats an open door
And the fire burning bright
And someone there at night
