lyrics

This Isn't What I Signed Up For

I dreamt I sat on a sandy beach, far away and out of reach,
The sound of crying filled my head, made me jump out of my bed,
4am and here we are, staring at my old guitar,
Now I’m cleaning piss off the bedroom floor, this isn’t what I signed up for.

Let’s fuck it all and run away,
Join the circus for a day,
I don’t care what your mum would say.

We were lovers way back when, we could talk and we were friends,
Now we don’t talk, we bitch and whine, I’ll stab your back, you stab mine,
Sex is just like Christmas cheer, it only comes but once a year,
My back creaks like an old barn door, this isn’t what I signed up for.

Let’s fuck it all and run away,
Join the circus for a day,
I don’t care what your mum would say.

Let’s fuck it all and run away,
Join the circus for a day,
I don’t care what your mum would say,
Over the hills and far away,
No one told me it would be this way.
