you gave me a chance at the palais de danse to prove i'm worth your time
you gave me a chance to prove i'm more then just an also-ran

a knife for the girls who want to come home for just one night
a knife for the girls who never return your calls
you gave me a chance at the palais de danse to prove i'm worth your time
you gave me a chance to prove i'm more then just an also-ran

something happened to change your mind
something happened, i don't know why

and now i reach for your hand and you cut me again
you've got a knife for the girls and a knife for the man
i don't mind seeing your face around
but we can never speak again
no no no no

a knife for the men who've taken the heat off you this time
a knife for the men who keep you awake at night
this could be the last time you can say for sure
you know i'm here if you need a girl...

something happened to change your mind
something happened, i don't know why

and now i reach for your hand and you cut me again
you've got a knife for the girls and a knife for the man
i don't mind seeing your face around
but we can never speak again

well, in a backroom in harehills
when you said i was a superstar,
what did you mean?
what did you mean?
harehills
harehills
harehills
well, in a backroom in harehills what did you mean?

and now i reach for your hand and you cut me again
you've got a knife for the girls and a knife for the man
i don't mind seeing your face around
but we can never speak again

i got my souvenir
i got my souvenir
well, in a back room in harehills i got my souvenir

my baby doll
don't go to London
don't go to London
no no no
don't go to London
don't go to London
no no no
don't go to London
don't go to London
no no no
don't go to London
don't go to London
no no no
