Anyone But You

from by Max Savage



Anyone but you
Would let me walk away
Would see the way we bruise
The way we lost ourselves
It’s anybody’s game
I was prepared to lose
To anyone but you

Eyes so blue you could drown inside
Walking through the evening like a burning pyre
I was outclassed and outdone
Light me up and let me burn to white
Let me lie away into the dead of night
I’m only driftwood I’m only drifting

Virtue’s broken wing
Kept me from the things that made it real
I gave up the right
To keep your love inside
I could be true - to anyone but you

Breakneck speed on the ocean road
Try to get to Nelson fore’ you realise I’m gone
But I’m gone babe well I’m gone
Get a little weed and drink a bottle of wine
Baby no-ones gonna help you once they run out of time
And they’re busy - we’re all getting busy

Ask me how to sing
Ask me everything I never learned
Cast your stones in sin
Cast me as the villain it’s all true
For anyone but you

Take your things and give up your tears
Nothing's getting better til' you get out of here
And I’m praying, that you’ll stay
Pack your bags and forget the dreams
Buy a ticket somewhere on the cover of a magazine
It's that easy, it's that easy

Throw out rolls of film
Give away the things you own and leave
Sell your car for scrap
Call your little sister say you’re not sure if you’re coming back it's easy to do
For anyone but you
