Lyrics

You’re gonna say, «I told you so»
I never should have let you go Now, ain’t it funny then here we are
The two of us in two different bars
When separate gauges dancing slow
We ain’t got nobody to call our own
Now, you can always go back home
Well, you just might be there alone
Now, I’m drunk and you’re insane
And I can’t quit and you won’t change
Ain’t no halfhearted Romeo
Why do you treat me so?
Like all of the junk
That’s too much to laugh
Well can’t you please smile
When you call me that?
Now, days are hotter than you would believe
I ain’t having luck making ends meet
Time and money then look at me
I’m richer than a poor man should be Price of admission, well it’s much too steep
For broken, educated clowns like me But maybe true I was first to leave
But now I’m begging you please
My heart’s on my sleeve
And I’m tipping my eyes
So can’t you please smile
When you call me that?
Not much is sitting but this much is true
My arms are useless if they don’t have you
They hang around me with nothing to do
I’m hoping you and yours are lonesome too
Neon buzzing and here I am Last one standing, last call again
While you’re unfolding in a stranger’s hands
I’ll drink up and be somebody’s man
Angels can walk, I’ve seen it before
They turn handles and they open doors
They act like devils, know you’ve been warned
They vanish when love is warm
I’m down on my knees
And you won’t have me back
But can’t you please smile
When you call me that?
I’m down on my knees
And you won’t have me back
But can’t you please smile
When you call me that?
