A Little Piece of Advice
If you could pull yourself away from that mess Surely if you could pack a punch then you can pack a dress 'Cause hot on the trail of self pity is wilderness Like hot on the heels of heartbreak is happiness It's an upward struggle just to be yourself (To be yourself) And if I climb too far I'll end up on the shelf When sorry's have been said and tears, tears have dried I'm still the easy route to easy ride If you could just have a good word with yourself Convince yourself you're you and no-one else Restore your confidence and your pride A soldier don't need no-one by their side It seems as though there's only me to blame (Me To Blame) Pushover, must be my middle name Just because he flushed love down the drain Doesn't mean your little heart can't be reclaimed If you could just have a good word with yourself Convince yourself you're you and no-one else Restore your confidence and your pride A soldier don't need no-one by their side And I know that what I've chosen's second best And if the passport was there then I'd say yes But departure leaves a fully feathered nest This easy bird is easily impressed This easy bird is easily impressed Your little wings broken, nest destroyed The love that he talked of, null and void If you knew you were a plaything with which they toyed Your little heart would now be the employed Next time I choose to love I'll take good aim Miss out on his sweet talk and his blame Then when I miss the target you can't complain It's only the sure-shot actually feels the pain It's only the sure-shot actually feels the pain It's only the sure-shot actually feels the pain
