Jaded Lover

album: Camel Rock (1995), track 13 of 13
author: Chuck Pyle
publisher: Bee 'n' Flower Music BMI

It won't be but a week or two
And you'll be wanting someone new loving you
It's something you've done a hundred times before
Yet you see I been spreading myself thin too
It's a lonely phase we've been going through
Don't get up I can find my own way to the door
   I can see you are an angel whose wings just won't unfold
   Tune up your harp, polish your old halo
   Well the only kind of man you ever wanted
   Was the one that you knew you'd never hold very long
   And you're sitting there crying like I'm the first one to go
You may have thirty lovers s behind you
I may feel you but I sure don't find you
Seems you would've found your own self by now
But some nights those lovers tears are coming back
Faces in your dreams, fingers in your back
Echoes of a memory for crying out loud
What a beautiful sight you are in your sleep
I'll be leaving 'cause believing gets me in too deep
That's easy enough for a man to say
But we'd never agree if we talked all night
You get so heavy and I"m traveling light
Bye, jaded lover, just an undercover queen-for-a-day
