Just out of spite,
I confess I've ruined three lives Now don't sleep so tight Because I didn't care till I found out that one of them was mine
 Night after night time time after time
Done too much of both types of whining Still wasn't right fight after fight
To get out of my life get away from me get away from that gun

No it's not a joke it's cards on the table time
I could have phoned I could have spoke But how to break the news without beaking your heart  Being dead don't hurt,
No only dying Cards on the table time, Sometimes it's right to say goodnight  Always searching for paradise,
I'll admit that I'm good as blind Darling I confess yes I've ruined three lives And didn't care till I found out that one of them was mine

I confess Our love seems like a punishment And I confess,
If it's all the same to you I'll stay indifferent 
I confess I confess I confess I confess I confess I confess 
No-one wins and there's no denying,
Don't pretend like you don't know why,
Just a little word here a little push there darling
I confess look I confess that I don't really care

I confess I confess I confess Out like a light Another boy who's given up trying Blinded by fright 
He scream my life's not open Please get out,
I know I'm shouting,
I like to shout 
It's not a joke it's cards on the table time
It's not a joke it's cards on the table time
I could have phoned I could spoke

But how to break the news without beaking your heart Being dead don't hurt,
No only dying Cards on the table time, Sometimes it's right to say goodnight  Always searching for paradise,
I'll admit that I'm good as blind Darling I confess yes I've ruined three lives didn't care till I found out that one of them was mine

I confess I deserve some type of punishment I confess If it's all the same to you I'll stay indifferent 
I confess I confess I confess I confess I confess I confess I confess I confess I confess I confess I confess I confess I confess I confess I confess
