Shoplifting In A Ghost Town (Give Up The Ghost)

I've never seen to many stars (And I'm never gonna see them again) I've never known such perfection (And I'm never gonna know it again) I've never felt so at home (And I'm never gonna feel it again) I want to open these veins And never breathe again Because the beauty is dead... Since February 79' I've O.D.'ed on "lonesome" 22 times (But who's counting?) You'd think by now - you would've died I'm sorry girls - I tried (Scream these words to me) If imperfections are illegal Then you should call the cops And they should lock me up You're such a slave to the crying game (Scream these words to me) We'll die alone Picture me in brighter days With smiles on my innocent face (Did you forget me?) I only wanted to be loved I only wanted to be in love (Scream these words to me) If imperfections are illegal Then you should call the cops And they should lock me up You're such a slave to the crying game (Scream these words to me) We'll die alone Could you love a face Full of tears soaked in song? I can't decide... I don't know if its worse to live or die I am stuck on "never enough" And the corner of "never again" Here is a hint - don't call someone Who just sits by the phone Leave them alone I loved the first few days But its not fun playing a game You always lose I couldn't talk to save my life I couldn't talk to save my life
