Nina Gordon — Badway lyrics

The pinch
One inch
Half a head
And half dead
No pain
No gain
There's a million voices in my brain
It's like a game of hide and seek
And I play every day
I close my eyes and I count to ten
One two three and everybody runs away
I'm in a bad way
It's such a bad way
Can't you give a damn on a better day
I can't come out to play
When I'm in such a bad bad way
Purple leather
Makes it better
A purple coat or a purple sweater
Clothes make the girl I know but
I can't get dressed when I'm this low
I'm like a self made hand grenade
But I can't pull the pin
I set the bait and sit back and wait
Then I try to see if I can reel you in
I'm in a bad way
It's such a bad way
Can't you give a damn on a better day
I can't come out to play
I'm in such a bad bad way
Go away
Don't go away
Don't go away yeah !
Little peach
Little blue
A little water and
I'm as good as new
I want to swallow all of you
But I'm biting more than I can chew
It's like a game of hide and seek
And I play every day
I close my eyes and I count to ten
One two three and everybody runs away
I'm in a bad way
It's such a bad way
Can't you give a damn on a better day
I can't come out to play
I'm in such a bad bad way
