lyrics

She said, "I do not come to bury you, I come to sing your praises"
I said, "Then you should know that you're the one, dear, I should be careful of..."
And, though I am not immune to all them whisper-to-me glances
Don't think I confuse 'em with some subtle kind of love
Just because you speak to me in a voice that smells like roses
That don't mean that I don't see behind them rehearsed poses
You could tell me tales and I could pretend to listen
But, I'm sure we've both got better things to do...

I try to keep it simpler the older that I get
Take what I have learned and strip it all away
Forever looking backwards, darling, I do not forget
I've been with you a thousand times on a thousand other days
And, just because you tell me 'bout all your glistening connections
You give yourself, the confidante, but, I do not need protection
You could tell me tales and I could pretend to listen
But, I'm sure we've both got better things to do...

She said, "I cannot believe you, tell me whatcha trying to say?"
I said, "Take it as you want to, me, I take it from the side"
She said, "I think that you mistake me..." as she turned the other way
I said, "I only see you better, darling, the more you try to hide"
Just because it's getting late and you're ready to go home now
That don't mean that I'm the one to take you to your door now
You could tell me tales and I could pretend to listen
But, I'm sure we've both got better things to do...
