The Lyrics

I realise that I can't go on
I have to draw the line
A cheap affair is all this is
I know now you'll never be mine

I have to try to salvage
the tattered shreds of my dignity
although it's killing me to say this now
I know that I must break free

You'd better go now
..........go now before I lose my nerve
it's almost too late
no don't hesitate
you've had more than you deserve

you'd better go now
---I'm so scared I'll wind up hittin the booze
its not a question of blame
but I can't play this game
we both know that I'm bound to lose

In the heat of passion
it's so easy to forget
how dangerous it is to love
we all do things we live to regret

you've had that mid-life crisis
you're thinking where do I go from here?
But you know you can't turn back the clock
you just have to live with the fear

repeat chorus

The pain of losing you is too much to bear
but I know that it has to be
we've all been through it and we'll be there again
it's our destiny

don't look at me like that - it's so hard to resist
oh what's the difference who cares?
I'm addicted and I must have a fix
......... see you upstairs?

who needs a hero?
I can take them or leave them at the end of the day
guys are all the same
hey - I've forgotten his name
so what - if he's a really good lay

who needs a hero must admit when all is said and done
they're only good for one thing
ooh la la ring a ding
and girls just wanna have fun

who am I kidding
that's a transparent strategy for saving face
girls wanna lot more than fun
they're playing for that home run
it's too bad if they get stuck at first base

how could I do that?
how could I dredge up such a tired old baseball metaphor
okay it's no big deal
but from now my lips are sealed
before I bitch about the level of the playing field
