The Sweet Life

This song is by You Am I and appears on the album Convicts (2006).

Yeah you're beautiful but you're fucked
Were you damned as such?
Vain lads clamour just for the hem of your drawers
Its no fake breeze
That I spend my days
Just pottering what I became the jewel in your cause
Through the smoke and the noise
What extraordinary poise
Oh, you're sharp ain't ya

If you say you love someone insane
Why would you want them to change
From the sweet high life
And those long sad goodbyes
Did we have to pay such a price - damn

Oh yeah you're spirited but obsessed
Folks got burned for less
Loose change jangle on the bones in my chest
I ain't the best, just a try-hard wreck
What a princess we created - damn
Through the blood and bone
Now I sit alone with delicious wine at home
I'd leave my turmoil discrete
If the noise didn't sound so sweet

For the sweet high life
And the long sad goodbyes
Did we have to pay such a price
For the sweet high life
And those long sad goodbyes
Do I have to pay such a price

For the sweet high life
And those long sad goodbyes
Did we have to pay such a price
For the sweet high life
And those long sad goodbyes
Do I have to pay such a price
For the sweet high life
And those long sad goodbyes
Did we have to pay such a price
Damn
