Sacrifice
Jonas von der Burg, Anoo Bhagavan, Niclas von der Burg

I heard you say you’re living for the joy of giving
But it’s not that noble if you’ve got a motive
Now it’s goodbye
All I’m thinking now is goodbye

Hey, Mister Saint of nothing, you’re the king of bluffing
‘Cause you spend your loving, always wanting something
And it’s goodbye
All I’m feeling now is goodbye

Don’t need your lame persuading
Now your star is fading
You can toss that halo
‘Cause your love’s for sale
Oh, now it’s goodbye
All I’m saying now is goodbye

So take a fall from heaven, wings on fire
I’ll be down here waiting, ooh

You’ve been a good ride, baby, but you’re overrated
If you go giving it to be getting
Then it ain’t much of a sacrifice
Good time, baby, but I’ll catch you later
If you’re not working for what you’re betting
Then it ain’t much of a sacrifice

Sacrifice
Sacrifice
Sacrifice

I heard you say you’re living for the joy of giving
But it’s not that noble if you’ve got a motive
Now it’s goodbye
All I’m thinking now is goodbye

Don’t need your lame persuading
Now your star is fading
You can toss that halo
‘Cause your love’s for sale
Oh, now it’s goodbye
All I’m saying now is goodbye

So take a fall from heaven, wings on fire
I’ll be down here waiting, ooh

You’ve been a good ride, baby, but you’re overrated
If you go giving it to be getting
Then it ain’t much of a sacrifice
Good time, baby, but I’ll catch you later
If you’re not working for what you’re betting
Then it ain’t much of a sacrifice

Sacrifice
Sacrifice
Sacrifice

So take a fall from heaven, wings on fire
I’ll be down here waiting, ooh

You’ve been a good ride, baby, but you’re overrated
You’ve been a good ride, baby, but you’re overrated

You’ve been a good ride, baby, but you’re overrated
If you go giving it to be getting
Then it ain’t much of a sacrifice
Good time, baby, but I’ll catch you later
If you’re not working for what you’re betting
Then it ain’t much of a sacrifice
