lyrics

Why Not Just Give In This Time

I never wanted you
to tell me I was crazy
I never wanted you
to tell me I was wrong
I never wanted you
to look so beautifully lazy
I never wanted you
to pack up and move home

but I’ve got mileage on my side
and your legs won’t catch no ride
and to swim is suicide
why not just give in this time?
and these folks across the street
dissect the nights they heard us weep
they keep their gossip on the cheap
why not just give in this time?

I never wanted you
to become terminally bitter
I never wanted you
to loose all your lucky charms
I never wanted you
to be the superstitious sister
I never wanted you
to feel so vacant in my arm

but I’ve got no where left to hide
and these friends all wonder why
I’m always last to take your side
why not just give in this time?
take that long walk into town
turn their heads then turn around
put your brains back in that crown
why not just give in this time?

I never wanted you
to tell me I was crazy
I never wanted you
to tell me I was wrong
I never wanted you
to look so beautifully lazy
I never wanted you
to pack up and move home

but these memories of mine
are like a nite-lite in my mind
for the sleep I left behind
why not just give in this time?
and I know you’re still sore
’cause the frying pans in the kitchen door
but take it on the chin just once more
why not just give in this time?
why not just give in this time?
