Slaughtered gutted and heartbroken 
With no spirit or no soul 
My emotions have been stolen 
Love has left me with this hole 
Now my heart's a deep dark cavern 
Emptiness is all I feel 
I'm the pig she tried to fatten 
And now all I do is squeal 
But things could be worse 
Things could be very bad for me 
O' my dear I find myself 
A stitch short of a tapestry 

Patience on the verge of breaking 
I'm kicking cans around the street 
Like a bad cold I need shaking 
Like a fool I want to cheat 
But to me she was an angel 
And I went and let her down 
The attraction was so fatal 
That she kicked me off her cloud 

The light was on there in her window 
I saw her shadow moving around 
I tried to stand on tip toes 
Hoping that she might look down 
I wanted so bad to call her 
But I had to walk away 
Slaughtered, gutted and heartbroken 
Another diamond down the drain
