Lyrics

Remember our first date
Back in the day
The signs were all there when
You asked me to pay

You told me you loved me
You made it sound true
But now looking back
It was all about you

Your social ambition
To name drop the best
Depended on me
Just to feather your nest

And over my shoulder
Seeing someone new
Opportunities beckoned
What else could you do?

Now you're running on empty
Still looking for gold
Your heart is re-mortgaged
Your soul has been sold
Your friends all desert you
As the lies they unfold
Like the treasures you're seeking
You're hard and you're cold

Remember our last kiss
That was the day
When you pressed my buttons
And I flew away

You'd think that you'd know
I don't need a receipt
I'm only returning your lies
Lies and deceit

And love makes you strong
If it don't kill you first
As I stood my ground
Our fortunes were reversed

Now you're running on empty
Still looking for gold
Your heart is re-mortgaged
Your soul has been sold
Your friends all desert you
As the lies they unfold
Like the treasures you're seeking
You're hard and you're cold
