Nothing that's forced can ever be right 
If it doesn't come naturally, leave it 
That's what she said as she turned out the light 
And we bent our backs as slaves of the night 
Then she lowered her guard and showed me the scars 
She got from trying to fight 
Saying oh, you'd better believe it. 

Well I'm up to my neck in the crumbling wreckage 
Of all that I wanted from life 
When I looked for respect all I got was neglect 
Though I swallowed the lign as a sign of the times 
But dealing a jack from the back of the pack 
They said-"You lose again" 
Oh, I said, who needs it? 

Well don't get me wrong now I tried to get on 
With the jokers that got in my way 
And I put on a smile and I tried all the while to be straight 
But they just wanted more all the time and I'm sure 
That you know what I mean when I say 
That I'm sick of the touch and there's only so much you can take. 

Well nothing that's real is ever for free 
And you just have to pay for it sometime 
She said it before, she said it to me 
I suppose she believed there was nothing to see 
But the same old four imaginary walls 
She built for living inside 
I said oh, you just can't meana it 

Well there was never a doubt that she had to get out 
she was just looking around for a way 
In the pit of the night there was nowhere to hide any more 
She was out on a limb, she was reaching for things 
That she wanted, but just couldn't say 
And she had to be sure that she wouldn't get caught like before. 

Well nothing that's forced can ever be right 
If it doesn't come naturally, leave it 
That's what she said as she turned out the light 
And she may have been wrong, and she may have been right 
But I woke with the frost, and noticed she'd lost 
The veil that covered her eyes 
I said oh, you can leave it.
