    Lyrics

    If you could pull yourself away from that mess
    Surely if you could pack a punch then you can pack a dress
    'Cause hot on the trail of self pity is wilderness
    Like hot on the heels of heartbreak is happiness

    It's an upward struggle just to be yourself (To be yourself)
    And if I climb too far I'll end up on the shelf
    When sorry's have been said and tears, tears have dried
    I'm still the easy route to easy ride

    If you could just have a good word with yourself
    Convince yourself you're you and no-one else
    Restore your confidence and your pride
    A soldier don't need no-one by their side

    It seems as though there's only me to blame (Me To Blame)
    Pushover, must be my middle name
    Just because he flushed love down the drain
    Doesn't mean your little heart can't be reclaimed

    If you could just have a good word with yourself
    Convince yourself you're you and no-one else
    Restore your confidence and your pride
    A soldier don't need no-one by their side

    And I know that what I've chosen's second best
    And if the passport was there then I'd say yes
    But departure leaves a fully feathered nest
    This easy bird is easily impressed
    This easy bird is easily impressed

    Your little wings broken, nest destroyed
    The love that he talked of, null and void
    If you knew you were a plaything with which they toyed
    Your little heart would now be the employed

    Next time I choose to love I'll take good aim
    Miss out on his sweet talk and his blame
    Then when I miss the target you can't complain
    It's only the sure-shot actually feels the pain
    It's only the sure-shot actually feels the pain
    It's only the sure-shot actually feels the pain
