Dire Straits
[Verse 1]
Tearing pages out of my diary
And try to change this story of my life
Collapse as a falling statue and turning to dust
Headed off to a different planet
Running through the streets I'm in a state of war
Surrounded by embracing arms, but who can I trust?
Waking up in places I don't know
Silver screen showing lies in slow-motion
And I realize

[Chorus]
I, I'm in dire straits
In dire straits because of you
And you, you're in dire straits
And you've blocked the gates because of me

[Verse 2]
We awake blast, we are hanging in the air
End it dark clouds just won't disappear
We try and we try, but it seems like we've lost
We have burned our house to the ground
We are reveling through the night without a sound
And I realize

[Chorus]
That I'm, I'm in dire straits
In dire straits because of you
Oh, and you, you're in dire straits
And you've blocked the gates because of me

[Verse 3]
Tearing pages out of my diary
And try to change this story of my life
Collapse as a falling statue and turning to dust

[Chorus]
I, I'm in dire straits
In dire straits because of you
Oh, and you, babe, you're in dire straits
And you've blocked the gates because of me

[Outro]
Oh yeah, whoa
Because of me, oh yeah
