lyrics

Well you know how the last seven years
Haven't been all that easy
Times I'd feel so weak
Cos I can't seem to speak
When I'm angry
All those things that they say
When they stand in your way
Just seemed to eat me up deep down inside
Well they force you to crawl till you make it
And then they all want to own you

Blond and blue... you fight like a tiger
Blond and blue... you'd better come home

All that smiling and lies
All that long-swallowed pride
Used to make me choke up
All those high-flying friends
Keeping up with the trends
They couldn't wait to get the blade in
For your own peace of mind
Try and give me some sign
And show me you still want me
After so many years can you take it
Now it's here for the asking?

Blond and blue... you fight like a tiger
Blond and blue... you'd better come home

So for both of our sakes won't you give me a break
So I can prove that I won't use you
When you're so terrified
I can't stand to stand by yet again.

You're blond and blue... you fight like a tiger
Said, blond and blue... you'd better come home
