I've heard some talk
They say you think I'm fine

I wish I were glass
So you could see through
Then you'd know before you ask

Now you got a boyfriend down the street,
Baby, whatcha tryin' to do

Arms have I, strong as the oak, for this occasion

When your heartaches seem to hang around too long
And your blues keep getting bluer with each song

If I called out your name like a prayer at night
Would you leave me alone with my tears?

Is it any wonder that I feel so blue
When I know for certain that I'm losing you

I try to put my arms around you
All because I wanna hold you tight

I know we've had a quarrel, but all sweethearts do
I gave my love to prove to you
That I would always love you and be true

Forget the fellas at the candy store
'Cause you ain't gonna see 'em anymore

I don't need a fortune teller
I don't need a crystal ball

And I wish my head had been working right
We'd have gone for coffee and talked all night

Do they take 'em for expresso, yeah, I guess so
On each lover's arm a girl I wish I knew

Ah, but now I see the light
And everything's gonna be alright, baby

I'm going where the sun keeps shining
Through the pouring rain
Going where the weather suits my clothes

My heart was breaking, which one would it be
You turned around and walked away with me

Five feet of heaven in a pony tail

This time it's real
And I want you to know exactly how I feel

So if you don't think I'm gonna try
You better ask yourself the reason why

Is this the way our romance ends?
I got the message when you said we could be friends
My love was true

It's so quiet in the street
You can hear the sound of feet walking by
I'll put the coffee on to brew
We can have a cup or two

My girlfriend Betty tells me he's lazy
But I know Betty loves him like crazy

If good looks was a minute
You know that you would be an hour

Nothing you can do 'cause I'm stuck like glue

Jimmy was your sweetie pie, your precious one
And I know you used to love the very ground he walked upon


And I will show you blood on the stone
And I will be your mentor
And night will be our darling
And fear will be our name
It's hi, ho, hey

TV dinner by the pool
Watch your brother grow a beard
Got another year of school
You're okay he's too weird
