Ballad Of A Landlord Lyrics

on the day you arrived
the bedroom curtains were drawn
all was still
the way you left it
same number on the door
easy come, easy go
what a way to treat your soul
though i confess
where once hearts rested
now there's nothing
but a hole

so the prodigal son returns
i guess the pleasure's not enough
did he promise you the earth
a world of beauty an the bluff
i tried to tend the garden
until the flowers fell to weed
so now the place lies in a ruin
the way you lied and ruined me
do i have the answer
if i did i wouldn't know
so take it if you want it
if you don't
then let me go

fake leopard skin fur says it all
you never could be real
how i long to taste the secrets
from your lands of phoney tears
you tried to be a movement
but there was no one on your side
did you come back here to haunt me
or take me for a ride

take yourself away
i've been here once before
and i can't have you hurting me
