Lyrics

Surprise, surprise
I understand your shock at getting wise
I was feeling shame, you were feeling stupid
'Coz I knew what was wrong with me long before you did
I knew what was wrong with me long before you did
Mm hm

I've spent my whole adult life worrying
That the world woulf find me out before too long
I faint, I fail, my vision starts a-blurrying
So just stay strong
Or get strong

Surprise, surprise
Look into these never loving eyes
You were feeling safe, while I was feeling lonely
You thought that you had known me but I wish that you had only
Known just what was wrong with me long before you did
Mm hm

A life on the run
From the truth is a gun
With its barrel pointed deep down in your throat
And one day you'll say enough
Of this self-defeating stuff
One false move
That's all she wrote

Instrumental

And on those mornings when I'm lying
In our bed alone and realise I'm old
My mind begins to wish that I was flying
It's not my mind
It's my soul

Surprise, surprise
I understand your shock at getting wise
I was feeling shame, you were feeling stupid
'Coz I knew what was wrong with me long before you did
I knew what was wrong with me long before you did

I knew what was wrong with me long before you did
