No Win Situation

( Colin Hay / Chad Fischer )

I bought her a diamond ring
I had to sell everything
She said I just don’t like the stone

I said let’s fly to Bali
Like a punch from Muhammad Ali
She said she’d rather go to Rome

We’re here today
But we’re miles away
That’s why I say

It’s a no win situation
(From Now On)
It’s a no win situation
(On My Own)

She said right to my face
I need to have some more space
I knew that I was on my own
She turned up at my door
Dressed like a high class whore
Saying I can’t stand to be alone

So here we lay
But we’re miles away
And that’s why I say

It’s a no win situation
(From Now On)
It’s a no win situation
(On My Own)

We’re here today
But we’re miles away
As we fade to gray
It’s a no win situation
(From Now On)
It’s a no win situation
(On My Own)

It’s a no win situation
(From Now On)
It’s a no win situation
(On My Own)
