Prostitute Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It seems like forever and a day
If my intentions were misunderstood
Please be kind, I've done all I should
I won't ask of you what I would not do
Oh, I saw the damage in you
My fortunate one, the ending of you

Why would they tell me to please go
Then laugh in my face
When all of the reasons they don't ask
All over themselves to give way, oh yeah?

It's not a question of whether my heart is true
Streamlined, I had to pull through
Look for a new beginning on you
Oh, I've got a message for you
A better way, it's what I've got to do
Give what you have, for what you might lose

What would you say if I told you that I'm to blame?
And what would you do if I had to deny your name?
Where would you go if I told you I loved you
And then walked away? Ooh yeah
Who should I tell if not for the ones
That you could not save? Ooh yeah

I told you when I found you if there was doubts
You should be careful and not afraid now
They surround you and all that amounts to
Is love that you've crippled for fortune and fame

If my affections are misunderstood
And you decide I'm up to no good
Don't ask me to enjoy them just for you

Ask yourself what I would do to prostitute myself
To live with fortune and shame, oh yeah
When you should have turned to the hearts
Of the ones that you would not save, oh now
I told you when I found you all that amounts to
Is love that you've crippled for fortune and fame
