Sleeping with the Enemy
[Verse 1]
I'm waiting here
Thinking about whatever went wrong
Got my gloves on, picking a fight
Just waiting for that gong
I know I'll still be waiting by the end of this song
I know you ain't never gonna be here
'Cause just you take too long

[Pre-Chorus]
I got no fear, I am a beast
I got my business and I'm trying to get receipts
I still fall down but don't be fooled
'Cause I'll get over it, over it, over it
I'll get over it, over it, over it

[Chorus]
But these three things are killing me
I lost my heart, my mind, my dignity
And I don't know if I will ever be the same again
It's such a mystery
So tell me what am I supposed to do?
To try and get my mind right off of you
Because you took the very best of me
And now I'm sleeping with the enemy, enemy

[Verse 2]
I wish I'd never opened up my heart to you
Laid it out on a fancy plate with a side of orange juice
You met my mum, my chum, my dad, my sisters too
Now somebody else's family is probably feeding you

[Pre-Chorus]
So curtains off and take a bow
You got the Oscar for the biggest fake in town
I may be dumb but don't be fooled
'Cause I'll get over it, over it, over it
I'll get over it, over it, over it

[Chorus]
But these three things are killing me
I lost my heart, my mind, my dignity
And I don't know if I will ever be the same again
It's such a mystery
So tell me what am I supposed to do?
To try and get my mind right off of you
Because you took the very best of me
And now I'm sleeping with the enemy, enemy
[Bridge]
Look at my heart, it's laying there
Bleeding by the side of the road
Can't find the glue, I'm out of tape
No way for me to fix it
It's only a scar, they're only tears
But they won't leave a trace now
And every bruise has made me stronger

[Chorus]
These three things are killing me
I lost my heart, my mind, my dignity
And I don't know if I will ever be the same again
It's such a mystery
So tell me what am I supposed to do?
To try and get my mind right off of you
Because you took the very best of me
And now I'm sleeping with the enemy, enemy

[Outro]
Look at my heart, it's laying there
(Sleeping with the enemy)
