Home > Pete Doherty > The Ballad Of Grimaldi

While there's still a fighting chance
Can't you just get up and go
And get away from this hollow romance
It's slowly binding us both
Because you'll tell me what you want and I'll avoid it
Tell it to the sick and to the damned
Show me what you love, watch me destroy it
For love just crumbles in my hands.

But if you stay for a while..
I'll try to think of something kind to say
And maybe if we pray for a while
St. jude might hear my pleas
And see me on my knees.

Because she knows how I adore you
We won't be fighting again tonight
Not if she knows I adore you
No fighting again tonight...

I laugh and fall just like grimaldi
You wear your make-up like baby jane
All of those promising lies that you told me
Come on and tell me them again.

Oh well, I walked these streets all of my life..
The fear and hope at every turn
She took him to stepney and made him a wife
Oh you know yeah you know they'll crash and burn.

Because she'll tell him what she wants and he'll avoid it
May as well tell it to the sick and to the damned
Show him what you love, watch him destroy it
For love seems to crumble in his hands.
