Paloma Faith - Black & Blue Lyrics

I know a man who fills his emptiness with strangers (strangers)
I know a girl who drinks herself to sleep at night
You can't change her (change her)
I know people who use chat rooms as confessionals
I know down and outs who once were, once they were professionals
Wipe it off your sleeve, your superiority
Don't roll your eyes, my sweet!

I know a single mother who loses her mind on weekends (weekends)
She pleads with lady luck on scratch cards
With money lent to her by old friends (old friends)
I know people who take midnight drives to head space
I know what they'd give for just one loving embrace
Wipe it off your sleeve, your superiority
Don't roll your eyes, my sweet!

Chorus:
We're just the same
We all get desperate sometimes
Feeling black and blue
I know you'll find it hard to accept it sometimes
We all feel black and we feel blue!
Wipe it off your sleeve, your superiority
Don't roll your eyes, my sweet!

I know a rich man who has everything you could wish for,
But children (children)
I know an old lady who talks a lot but could teach you
If you listen (listen)
I know people who believe in gods and demons
I know ones who think there's nothing there at all
Wipe it off your sleeve, your superiority
Don't roll your eyes, my sweet!

Chorus:
We're just the same
We all get desperate sometimes
Feeling black and blue
I know you'll find it hard to accept it sometimes
We all feel black and we feel blue!
Wipe it off your sleeve, your superiority
Don't roll your eyes, my sweet!
Wipe it off your sleeve, your superiority
Don't roll your eyes, my sweet!
