lyrics

I never wanted you to tell me I was crazy
I never wanted you to tell me I was wrong
I never wanted youto 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
so 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 arms

but I’ve got no where left to hide
and these friends just wonder why
I’m always last to take your side
so why not just give in this time?
take that long walk into town
turn their heads then turn around
put your brains back in your 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 just a nite-lite in my mind
for all this sleep I left behind
why not just give in this time?
I know you’re still sore
‘cause the frying pans through the kitchen door
but take it on the chin just once more
why not just give in this time?
