A diamond in the sleaze, down on bended knees
A thousand grizzled nerves hanging loose at the ends
It's later than you think, it's gone before you blink
Out of the crosshairs, into the crowd
Do you want to see me suffering?
Do you want to see me suffering?
How could you let a good thing go?
How could you let a good thing go, go, oh?

A lion in a cage shakes his golden mane
He doesn't care who notices where he's gonna lie
He came to beg a meal, you're older than you feel
The keyboard of your memory is coming apart
It's a weight upon my shoulder
It's a weight upon my shoulder
How could you let a good thing go?
How could you let a good thing go, go, oh?
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go

The doctor takes a rest inside a hornet's nest
With Polaroids of patients who refuse to be cured
A life lived under glass and stolen Cadillacs
Can you hear the saxophones peeling the paint?
Do you want to see me suffering?
Do you want to see me suffering?
How could you let a good thing go?
How could you let a good thing go, go, oh?
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go
I won't ever let you go
