You’ll say what you always say

You’ll say
What you always say
Making easy excuses
For treating me that way

I’ll say
What I always say
Don’t worry, no apologies needed
It didn’t matter anyway

You’ll play
The games you always play
The ones where I get hurt
Every time you walk away

You’ll laugh
Your uncomfortable way
Where you try and pretend
It’s just another day

I’ll act
like I still believe
While inside I’m dying
From the death of peace, and grief

Hey baby, is that you?
Wow, your hair got so long
Yeah, yeah, I love it, I really do

Norma Jean, ain’t that song
We’d sing in the car
Driving downtown, top down
Making the rounds
Checking out the bands
On Doheeney Avenue

Yeah, life throws you curves
But you learned to swerve
Me, I swung and I missed
And the next thing ya know
I’m reminiscing
Dreaming old dreams
Wishing old wishes
Like you would be back again

I wake up in tear drops
That fall down like rain
I put on that old song
We danced to and then

I head off to my job
Guess not much has changed
Punch the clock
Head for home
Check the phone, just in case

Go to bed
Dream of you
That’s what I’m doing these days
Yeah, that’s what I’m doing

Someone told me after college
You ran off to Vegas
You married a rodeo cowboy
Wow, that ain’t the girl I knew

Me, I’ve been a few places
Mostly here and there, once or twice
Still sortin’ out life, but I’m doing alright

Yeah, it’s good to see you too
Well, hey girl, you’re late
And those planes, they don’t wait

But if you ever come back around
This sleepy old town
Promise me you’ll stop in
To see an old friend
And until then

I wake up and tear drops
That fall down like rain
I put on that old song
We danced to and then

I head off to my job
Guess not much has changed
Punch the clock
Head for home
Check the phone, just in case
Go to bed
Dream of you
That’s what I’m doing these days
