Lyrics

And I just don't do things by halves
So come now please don't make me laugh
The wicked lay stones in my path
And friends who are snakes in the grass

I felt the warmth of you in summer days gone by
The waves they rock the boat
You smiled at me and closed your eyes

I won't bow down, I won't kow tow
Won't be seen to, won't be lied to
I won't turn tail, won't be blackmailed by you

And I can see through you like glass
So come now please don't make me laugh

I hear the country church bells ring for you
I see the church choir rise and sing for you
But I'll be leaving soon, I'm off at high noon
I've got a heavy heart, we touch a long past

I won't bow down, I won't kow tow
Won't be seen to, won't be lied to
I won't turn tail, won't be blackmailed
But if you think of me
Think something sweet of me

I look around in rage
There's nothing left
There's nothing saved
Some memories, a photograph
The future looms, so damn the past

I don't want you, I don't need you
I won't bow down, I won't kow tow
I won't turn taiil, won't be blackmailed
Won't be seen to, I won't be lied to
Ooh, ooh, ooh
