​Bosco

This song is by Placebo and appears on the album Loud Like Love (2013).

I love you more than any man
But something's getting in the way
I do you harm because I can
For the second time today

Victims we are not of happenstance
But you're a victim all the same
Stuck inside a circumstance
With your confusion and your blame

And when I get drunk
You take me home
And keep me safe
From harm
When I get drunk
You take me home

I ask you for another second chance
But then I drink it all away
And I get bellicose when you react
For love, frustration and dismay

I was so delicate when we began
So tender when I spoke your name
But now I'm nothing but a partisan
To my compulsion and my shame

And when I get drunk
You take me home
And keep me safe
From harm
When I get drunk
You take me home

You know I'm grateful
I appreciate
But in fact it's baleful
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry
How I suck you...
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry

I love you more than any man
But I seem to lay it all to waste
I do you harm because I can
With a joke and questionable taste

I've such duplicity at my command
So I keep on lying to your face
Then I run away to wonderland
And disappear without a trace

When I get drunk
You take me home
And keep me safe
From harm
When I get drunk
You take me home

You know I'm grateful
I appreciate
But in fact it's baleful
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry
How I suck you...
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry
