Jaded Lover

album: Keepin' Time by the River (1998), track 8 of 12
author: Chuck Pyle
publisher: Bee 'n' Flower Music BMI

Well it won't be but a week or two
And you'll be wanting somebody new loving you
It's something you've done
A hundred times before
Yet, you can see I been spreading myself thin, too
It's a lonely phase we 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
   'Cause the only kind of man
   That 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
Now you may have thirty lovers behind you
I may feel you but I sure can'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'm leaving 'cause believing got me in too deep
I guess 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
Good-bye, jaded lover
Undercover queen-for-a-day
Yeah you're sitting there crying like I'm the first one to go
