lyrics

When I walk in through my front door I want to go back out,
Because I feel like I've said something wrong before I make a sound.
You look down upon me from the moral high ground.
You win, you win, I loose.

You criticise me daily like you wish I was someone else,
I can not keep you in style 'cause I don't have the wealth.
Why do I feel like I have to justify myself?
You win, you win, I loose.

Why can't you let sleeping dogs lie?
Why can't you let me keep some of my pride?
Don't you know how to compromise?
You win, you win, I loose.

We can't talk about us without you getting upset.
If I open my mouth it feels like Russian Roulette.
So I will not say nothing, I think that is my best bet,
You win, you win, I loose.

Do you want me to stay? Or maybe I should go.
Because I am a mere sinner while you're pure as the driven snow,
No I'm patronising you, I'd just really like to know
Must you win? Must you win? Then I'll loose.

Why can't you let sleeping dogs lie?
Why can't you let me keep some of my pride?
Don't you know how to compromise?
You win, you win, I loose.
