lyrics

I woke up on Monday morning stretched my bones the world is yawning back
We’re right on track
Another day of disappointment, TV dinner, wrinkle ointment
Please tell me no

It’s better the devil you know than the one you don’t
Better the life you’ve seen than walking out on me
It’s better the devil you know than the one you don’t
Than the one you don’t

As my cup overflows I’m crying daily honey let’s go out
Let’s go out
Come and trip the light fantastic playing hard and paying plastic
Like we used to do

Better the devil you know than the one you don’t
Better the life you’ve seen than walking out on me
It’s better the devil you know than the one you don’t
Than the one you don’t

Hit me hard and make me listen I’m the one who used to be on fire
I’m still on fire
Maybe I just need a wash, a brand new suit some spit and polish
Please don’t you go

Honey can’t you see without you I’d be me
Another also-ran just face down in the sand
Better the devil you know than the one you don’t
Better the life you’ve seen than walking out on me
It’s better the devil you know than the one you don’t
Than the one you don’t

about

Hope and Social Leeds

We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
