hoe geen vrouw ooit krijgt wat ze verdient
het zien duurt een seconde, de gedachte blijft voor altijd

Tonight the bottle showed me, and I learned
No woman ever gets what she has earned
The flash just took a second but the insight lasts forever
Tonight the bottle showed me and I learned

Tonight the bottle showed me, and I know
How women never harvest what they sow
How day and night they're trampled by the world and all its powers
The bottle has just showed me and I know

Last night I took a drink and saw the worst
no woman ever gets what she deserves
the vision lasts a second but the thought will stay forever
last night I took a drink and saw the worst
last night I took a glance at my regrets
a woman always gives more than she gets
no power in the world that doesn't turn into a menace
just now I took a glance at my regrets
just now I took a drink and saw the worst
I give you so much less than you deserve
another one who always looks ahead and never sideways
just now I took a glance at my regrets
Wasted blue
I'm drifting back to you
The vision lasts a second but the thought will stay forever
So here I come and here I am surrendering to you

A woman gives but donʼt get nothing back
There is no force on earth that doesnʼt pass some things aside
Last night I took a look and itʼs a fact
