Depending On You Lyrics

[Verse 1: Mick Jagger]
Your fingerprints in the dark
Your past and present tangle up in my arms
Our secrets sealed in our scars
Sharing a smoke on the steps of a bar
I was convinced I had your heart in my hands
I was making love into our different plans

[Chorus: Mick Jagger]
Now she's giving my loving to somebody new
I invested the game but I lost like a fool
Now I’m too young for dying and too old to lose
'Cause I was depending on you, yeah
'Cause I was depending on you

[Verse 2: Mick Jagger]
It’s time to harden my shells
The toughest part is I know you too well
Now I'm just a story you tell
Embroidering the truth with things you nevеr felt
You steal the spirit right out of a man
Now you'rе working on him and you don't give a damn

[Chorus: Mick Jagger]
Now she's giving my loving to somebody new
I invested the game but I lost like a fool
Now I'm too young for dying and too old to lose
'Cause I was depending on you, yeah
'Cause I was depending on you

[Chorus: Mick Jagger]
Now she’s giving my loving to somebody else
She threw me down like a book off the shelf
Now I’m too young for dying and too old to lose
'Cause I was depending on you
’Cause I was depending on you

[Outro: Mick Jagger]
Depending on you
Yeah, depending on you
Ayy, I was depending, relying on you
I was depending, depending on you
I was depending on you
