i’m not a lover
i’m just a whore
i’m not a liar
at least i wasn’t before
if you walk away
i won’t lock the door
but if you stay,
baby what’s it all for

i’m not a savior
i’m just a sign
i’m not a singer
o just call this a whine
o but still it all
seems more or less the same
and if you fall
find another name

you say you wanna be free
might have to settle for cheap

you’re tired of looking at me
well you can look where you please

they’re whispering in your ear while they’re pulling your tooth
a lie is just another way of telling the truth
their surgical gloves reaching their way up your thigh
the truth is just another way of telling a lie

you say you wanna be free
well i don’t know what you mean

you say your love don’t come cheap
whatever gets you to sleep
