Jaded Lover

album: Step by Step (1990), track 8 of 14
author: Chuck Pyle
publisher: Bee 'n' Flower Music BMI

Well, it won't be but a week or two
You'll be wanting somebody 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'll find my own way to the door
   And I see you are an angel
   Whose wings just won't unfold
   Tune up your harp
   Polish your old halo
   Cause the only kind of man
   That you ever wanted
   Was the one you knew
   You'd never hold very long
   You're sitting there crying,
   Like I'm the first one to go
You may have thirty lovers behind you
I may feel you but I sure don't find you
Seems you would've found your own self by now
Some nights those lovers' tears are coming back
Faces in your dreams, fingers in your back
Echoes of the memories for crying out loud
What a beautiful sight you are
In your sleep
I'll be leaving 'cause believing
Gets me in too deep
It's easy enough for a man to say
Yet we'd never agree if we talked all night
You get so heavy
When I'm traveling light
Goodbye, you Jaded Lover,
Undercover queen for a day
