Lyrics

As I gave in to temptation
I’ve straighten across the line
Keep it under wraps in the cold store
Put it to the back of your mind
Put it to the back of your mind

But by some miracle
I’ve just got away with it
I’ve clawed it back again
By some miracle
I’ve just got away with it
I’ve clawed it back
I’m crawling back again

As a black dog down in the basement
Is barking out my name
Snapping at my heels when I falter
Kick it but it won’t go away
Kick it but it won’t go away

But by some miracle
I’ve just got away with it
I’ve clawed it back again
But by some miracle
I’ve just got away with it
I’ve clawed it back
I’m crawling back again
