Window Shopping For Blinds
Heaton/Rotheray
One day I'm loaded, next day I'm broke
Spent all my money on whiskey and coke
Riding high 'till the rock hit the spoke
It's like window shopping for blinds

Spent all my money on a sunbed tan
Spoke the best that a young girl can
Ended up with a blind drunk man
It's like window shopping for blinds

It's like the heartbreak hotel, with the heartbreak but nowhere to stay
The doors are shut on us, the neon lights fade to grey

They say I drink too much, to me, well that's just profound
How do you know you can't swim, until you have drowned?

Well there's always a drop in the bottle lady
Always a sip of the wine
The glass doesn't seem so empty
When you are window shopping for blinds

It's like gatecrashing a field, that's not true, they've a harvest to yield
Save your tears for your evening meal,
When you are window shopping for blinds

One day you're sober, next day you're not
One day remebered, next day forgot
Spent all my money on cocaine and pot
It's like window shopping for blinds

Covered in bruises from head to toe
No-one to speak to, and nowhere to go
A map to nowhere, and nowhere I know
It's like window shopping for blinds

It's like the heartbreak hotel, with the heartbreak but nowhere to stay
The doors are shut on us, the neon lights fade to grey

They say I drink too much, to me, well that's just profound
How do you know you can't swim, until you have drowned?

Well there's always a drop in the bottle lady
Always a sip of the wine
The glass doesn't seem so empty
When you are window shopping for blinds

But what if my husband should come?
Well tell me what have you done?

I've cherished vodka, I've cherished rum
Don't mind us we're just licking our wounds in the sun

It's like writing 'I love you' in snow
You know when you write it that the message will go
i want a message that my lover will find
Don't mind us we're window shopping for blinds
