Kris Kristofferson - Stairway to the bottom songtekst
Well, you've started again with the wife of a friend On another night you hope you won't recall And the wine that you're drinkin' doesn't keep you from thinkin' Of the bitter taste that lingers in your sole. As you listen to your lies once again you realize That she doesn't mean a thing to you at all And I watch you climb that stairway to the bottom Every evening in that mirror on the wall. You take pride in deceivin' one who tried hard to believe in you Even after all the lies you told But each lie that you've spoken and each vow that you've broken Was a new nail in the coffin of your soul. And if you think someone's cryin' for the love that is dyin' With the trust that you betray each time you fall Look around you on that stairway to the bottom No one's watching but that mirror on the wall. Look around you on that stairway to the bottom No one's watching but that mirror on the wall...
