Bill Coleman - The Pull Of The Pint lyrics

When you cried you were lost, you fell asleep

When you dreamed you believed

When you lied you only lied unto yourself

And when you died you could see

I never cried the way you did

I didn't like it when you yelled

I never felt the way you felt

I didn't like it when you prayed

I thought you fooled yoursef



When you were shy you got drunk

When you were drunk you were a fool

When you were a fool you fell apart

When you fell apart you picked yourself up again

Didn't you?



This ain't a lesson for your day its just a game you've got to play

Its just a lie you've got to live

Its just a smile you've got to fake so you're controllable

And it helps you not to break

This is a crime you have to give to try to save your soul

This is a lesson not a rule

It wasn't easy when the penny dropped inside your head

But now you know the joke you tell it to your friends and they're all



When you were shy you got drunk

When you were drunk you were a fool

When you were a fool you fell apart

When you fell apart you picked yourself up again

Didn't you?





When you were told you wouldn't bite it

When you are old you will regret it

When you were bad you tried to hide it

When you were mad you just broke it

And when you were laughing you were dry

When you were crying you were high

And every escape is just a lie

Every escape is just a lie

Every escape is just a lie

Every escape is just a lie



Cuz when you were shy you got drunk

When you were drunk you were a fool

When you were a fool you fell apart

When you fell apart you built yourself up again

Didn't you?
