lyrics

spiders

i've been thinkin' 'bout you, drinkin' myself into oblivion
i've been thinkin' 'bout you, wonderin' where you are tonight
i laid it all on the line, and I don't have the time ­
to be thinkin' 'bout you, wishing you were here

you keep coming 'round here, why'd we have to get so serious?
i've been racking my brain, playing back the years
we must of said our goodbyes, a hundred thousand times
you keep coming 'round here repeating all your lines

let's give it up the curtain's calling
i can't do this anymore
bombs, bombs away - the city's burning
but all is fair in love and war

i've been bitten by so many spiders in this city
i've been bitten by so many spiders in this pretty town

i've been thinkin' 'bout you, drinkin' myself into oblivion
i've been thinkin' 'bout you, wonderin' where you are
all of our cares could drop like flies if we just let this die ­
i've been soaking my drink reaching the flood tide

let's give it up the curtain's calling
i can't do this anymore
bombs, bombs away - the city's burning
but all is fair in love and war

i've been bitten by so many spiders in this city
i've been bitten by so many spiders in this pretty town - so what's one more?

i've been bitten by so many spiders
