Oh, you look so tired Mouth slack and wide Ill-housed and ill-advised Your face is as mean as your life has been

Crash into my arms I want you You don't agree but you don't refuse I know you

And I know a place Where no-one is likely to pass Oh, you don't care if it's late And you don't care if you're lost

And oh, you look so tired But tonight you've presumed too much Too much, too much And if it's the last thing I ever do I'm gonna get you

Crash into my arms I want you You don't agree but you don't refuse I know you

And no one knows a thing about my life I can come and go as I please If I want to I can stay or if I want to I can leave

Nobody knows me, nobody knows me Nobody knows me, nobody knows me
