Lyrics

It's not right, but it's now or never And if I wait, could I ever forgive myself? On a night when the moon glows yellow in the riptide With the light from the TV's buzzing in the house 'Cause I'm gonna cut it where I can And then I'm gonna duck out behind them If I ever had a chance it's now then But I never had the feeling I could offer that to you To offer it to you would be cruel When all I want to do is use, use you He was a diplomat's son, it was '81 He was a diplomat's son, it was '81, oh-oh, oh-oh Dressed in white with my car keys hidden in the kitchen I could sleep wherever I lay my head And the sight of your two shoes sitting in the bathtub Let me know that I shouldn't give up just yet 'Cause I'm gonna take it from Simon And then I'm gonna duck out behind them If I ever had a chance it's now then But I never had the feeling I could offer that to you To offer it to you would be cruel When all I want to do is use, use you He was a diplomat's son, it was '81 He was a diplomat's son, it was '81, oh-oh, oh-oh I know, you'll say I'm not doing it right But this is how I want it I can't go back to how I felt before, there's That night I smoked a joint with my best friend We found ourselves in bed, when I woke up, he was gone He was a diplomat's son, it was '81 He was a diplomat's son, it was '81 Looking out at the ice-cold water all around me I can't feel any traces of that other place In the dark, when the wind comes racing off the river There's a car all black with diplomatic plates
