Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Hello, you don't know me,
But I stole your laptop and I took your TV.
I sold your Granny's rosary for 50p.
And I even pulled an old hijack,
Said I had a hypodermic in me backpack,
But I was only bluffing.
Oh, so long I've been a junkie,
I ought to wrap it up and mind my monkeys.
I really want to mend my ways;
I'm gonna call that number one of these days.
It's not too late.
I'm the one who sits in the bathroom,
Not the one who doesn't know how to have fun.
I'm the one to smoke a mist all around me
Because I don't like no one around me.
Because if I loved someone, I might lose someone.
Because if I loved someone, I might lose someone.
Oh, so long I've been a junkie,
I ought to wrap it up and mind my monkeys.
I really want to mend my ways;
I'm gonna call that number one of these days.
I'm gonna reach a hand out to you,
Say "would you pull me up? Now could you?"
I don't want to waste the life God gave me,
And I don't think that it's too late to save me.
Reason with me.
Let's reason together.
Reason with me.
Let's reason together.
