If you want to wreck my life, go ahead my love
Tried it once with poison, tried it once with drugs
My circulation's running dry, it's you that drank me up
You screwed me down with kindness, suffocating love

(But) When it comes to fighting
Trying to play it rough
I will take you 20 rounds
I'm just too tough, too tough

(I'm) Too tough

Saw you on TV last night in a rerun soap
You were young and beautiful, already without hope
But I don't think you ever knew what you've bitten off
But in the end you spat me out, you could not chew me up

I was married yesterday to a teenage bride
You say it's only physical but I love her deep inside
I still see you in my dreams with a kitchen knife
With it poised above your head, now who you going to slice?

I don't think you ever knew what you'd bitten off
But in the end you spat me out, you could not chew me up

I was too tough...
