Suede - Digging A Hole Lyrics




I've drunk too much, to belong to you
Feel so much older, but I'm only 22
She said she was an artist when I met her on the street
She sleeps right through the afternoon and throws up on the sheet
She took me to a hotel where she watched the evenings end
Cried into her coffee swearing she was on a mend

Two tortured souls digging a hole, when we need to cry
I wish I had your heart instead of mine, instead of mine

I took a nightbus down to the park
I climbed over the gate and then I ran into the dark
He said he was an artist on his bench under a tree
He said he liked to see the stars but not on nights like these

Two tortured souls digging a hole, when we need to cry
I wish I had your heart instead of mine, instead of mine

I've drunk too much to belong to you
I look up all the people to help me make it through
Everyone is an artist, and they've all got things to say
They know the words to say it all, but just not what to say

Just as night follows day, everything alive falls into decay
That's why I wish I had your heart, instead of mine
Yes, I wish I had your heart instead of mine

    I've drunk too much, to belong to you
    feel so much older, but I'm only 22
    she said she was an artist when I met her on the street
    she sleeps right through the afternoon and throws up on the sheet
    she took me to a hotel where she watched the evenings end
    cried into her coffee swearing she was on a mend

    two tortured souls digging a hole, when we need to cry
    I wish I had your heart instead of mine, instead of mine

    I took a nightbus down to the park
    I climbed over the gate and then I ran into the dark
    he said he was an artist on his bench under a tree
    he said he liked to see the stars but not on nights like these

    two tortured souls digging a hole, when we need to cry
    I wish I had your heart instead of mine, instead of mine

    I've drunk too much to belong to you
    I look up all the people to help me make it through
    everyone is an artist, and they've all got things to say
    they know the words to say it all, but just not what to say

    just as night follows day, everything alive falls into decay
    that's why I wish I had your heart, instead of mine
    yes, I wish I had your heart instead of mine

    Haunting lovely song- His voice caresses each word like a soft summer breeze- Just A gorgeous mix of Melancholy and wistful desire

  8. hyesungc

    to me it's one of the best suede songs. they should have put this in sci fi and remastered albums.

    Does anyone have news of Neil?

  20. M_Heroine

    that was great. truly. and I have to admit the first time I was only listening to this and concentrating on other things and I didn't even notice it wasn't Brett. They really were freakishly similiar. The lyrics to this were so good aswell. Thanks "InkyUK" :)
