Well, she said I know but I just can't tell
Everything that you've just been saying
Lucy was there as well in the dark
When the kids in the band were playing

No one can hear a word I tell
What the girl was singing
She just must have been 16 or 18
I'm just past caring

She was into the Stones when I was into the Roses
She was breaking my bones when I was bursting their noses
She would tell me a secret, I would lose it the next day
Young love pleases you easy, makes you sick in a bad way

And all the while the girls sang
La la la la, she sang
Kickings for my sweetheart
Bruises that I just don't miss
And she said, "I can't love you anymore than this"

La la la
La la la
La la la

La la la

She said, she said, No no no no
Then a Yeah, yes, why don't you kill me?
He asked it when it messed up right there
Sweetheart you know that don't thrill me

Said I would have been in there
If only you had been a little bit nicer
I was dead by Sunday
Half dead scared just trying to please her

She was getting the pills when I was into her best friend
She was chasing the thrills and living down the West End
She was pretty in braces, I lived out of her window
She said, Take me to London, tell me something I don't know

And all the while the girls sang
La la la la, she sang
Kickings for my sweetheart
Bruises that I just don't miss
And she said, "I can't love you anymore than this"

La la la
La la la
La la la

She was into the Stones when I was into the Roses
She was breaking my bones when I was bursting their noses
She would tell me a secret, I would lose it the next day
Young love pleases you easy, makes you sick in a bad way

And all the while the girls sang
La la la la, she sang
Kickings for my sweetheart
Bruises that I just don't miss
And she said, I don't like you, you can't stand me
I can't love you anymore than this
