A Feather In Your Cap

Version originale (4:00)

A feather in your cap, an indent on your pillow
Something you can brag about to all your friends, yeah
A feather in your cap, a notch upon your bedpost, yeah
How did I compare? Marks out of ten?

A feather in your cap, a shining badge of honour
A tasty little snack to have between your meals, yeah
A name that you can add to your list of lovers
I only wish you had informed me of the deal

And though it hurts like hell it's not the end of the worldAnd though it hurts like hell it's not the end of the world
I won’t come beating down your doorI won’t come beating down your door
I should have known that you were only after one thingI should have known that you were only after one thing
I just expected something moreI just expected something more
I hope that you'll forgive me if the next time we meetI hope that you'll forgive me if the next time we meet
I don't pretend to be okayI don't pretend to be okay
And if it makes you feel uncomfortable
You can always walk away
Just walk away

Just walk away

A feather in your cap, a footnote in your memoir
A holiday snap at the bottom of a drawer, yeah
That one day you’ll look at with just a tinge of sorrow
Throw it in the trash and get yourself a beer
