Self Defence


If I hurt you it was only self defence
And I couldn't remember,
couldn't remember your name.
Can't afford you
You cost more than pounds and pence
I can see you've gone and changed
the stakes in your game


And I can t tell wrong from right
Can't tell black from white,
Every morning finds me sleepless with regret
Seems to me they’re one and the same
It’s so hard to see, so hard to see
What's in store
Take a warning,
I'll come searching for you yet.
I believe so strong
I have to come back for more.


And I can't tell wrong from right
Can't tell black from white,
Seems to me they're one and the same.


Now I'm up like a hawk in the sky
Hearing every sound.
Now I'm down, Lost my wings,
Got my feet firmly on the Ground.
Colour blind, I can't tell if you're blushing
or angry and blue.
I can't decide if it's angel
or demon that's rough riding you.


And I can't tell wrong from right
Can't tell black from white,
Seems to me they're one and the same.
Can't tell......


Can't attack, you're a killer
but you got me hypnotised
Can't look back, you
could turn me to stone
you got heavy eyes
Black or white not a shade of opinion
no shadow of doubt
Wrong or right not an anguished decision
no easy way out.
