lyrics

left to my devices I'd have you
nothing I belong to had the glue
all the bats were in the cave, I told the tourists to behave but
now these flashing lights are turning blue

tried to do right, I just seem to lose
started packing lighter for the blues
passed around the bottle cause I'm just the type to share --
but now there's evil spirits in the air!

you say you want a better life
well you're not cheap and neither am I
tie me up, what's the deal
no damage done where there's none to heal
oh, make a fuss like you don't mind
being put up every night
I'm selling me because I'm buying you

chorus:
take me out, babe
(ride that windfall with me, we'll)
do it your way
(pretend life is easy)
I thought that I'd have to pay
But we both got high and we both got laid
so ride that windfall
til that money's done and gone

you're my sugar mama, I know why
(hate to say so; I don't like to lie)
taking all your clients on the side
(not ideal but its an honest life)
only ever wanted love, if'your dirty love's the cost
I guess I've found a new way to have lost

(Baby you can call me what you will)
Tried so hard but i just cant sit still,
(I'll still always be your daffodil)
Pick you up it make me want to spill
Coffeestain circle upon my hotel window sill
well soon enough, you'll see me on the bill!

you say you want a better life
well you're not cheap and neither am I
tie me up, what's the deal
no damage done where there's none to heal
oh, make a fuss like you don't mind
being put up every night
I'm selling me because I'm buying you

take me out, babe
(ride that windfall with me, we'll)
do it your way
(pretend life is easy)
I thought that I'd have to pay
But we both got high and we both got laid
so ride that windfall
til that money's done and gone

bridge:
I side, and side
with everyone that comes into my life
divide
divide until there's nothing left to hide
and I
been running from Chicago, well I tried
to find
a better life; but darling I know where my talents lie
inside
of everyone I come across, divide
divide
divide until there's nothing left to hide
and I
been running from Chicago, well I tried
to find
a better life; but darling I know where my talents lie

til that money's done and gone
