lyrics

I hear laughter up among the cobwebs
They rise and fall with the evening breeze
I’m lyin’ on my back on top of valentines
Never sent, they make me sick to read

I say I do and then I don’t
I say I will and then I won’t
Uh uh baby, it’s my turn to hide

From blonde to black to brown and then to redhead
She sighs and I’m in darker clouds
It didn’t make much difference when I knew her
It doesn’t make much difference now

Bitter greens with vinaigrette
Your table sir for one is set
Your waiter’s name is Steve
He’s kind of slow

I say I will and then I won’t
I say I do and then I don’t
Uh uh baby, it’s my turn to fly

I’ve always wanted to be by your side
I’ve always wanted too much
I think if I forget her I’ll be alright
Though we both know I’m the one that’s up and gone

Bitter greens with vinaigrette
Your table sir for one is set
Your waiter is deceased
Help yourself
