lyrics

While inspecting my surroundings through a paper towel tube
I thought I saw you plotting your impossible next move
Guess I caught you on the run again, I caught you on the loose
And don’t act like that does not amuse ya

On your second through attempt of half-explaining your dumb dream
In a time of never knowing just exactly what you mean
I must admit I had you on my mind when I cooked up this scheme
So does it or don’t it include ya

When I decide to tell you what I always thought was true
It feels as though I’m loving three alternatives to you
Still I don’t want you to notice when I say that we are through
And I just hope that doesn’t confuse ya

You thought enough to claim that you don’t care about the blues
I’d whistle any shade of any color that you choose
I just don’t know how not to make it so I always think of you
And for that I suppose I salute ya

And you forced me to confess to what I didn’t wanna do
And now this sudden mess has convoluted my whole view
It’s a bit hard to explain but you’ve been skunked and I’m untrue
But I did what I did just to suit ya

And now you’re rifling through drawers and getting angrier at me
For not writing down the purchase code or confirmation key
How many times can you remind me to archive and not delete
And how many times can I simply refuse to

But I keep on coming back to what I found in our backseat
A sudden seeming snap to our collapse, our sad defeat
Pertaining to the words you scribbled down on our old sheet
“Cribbage Champs 2017 Mark and Nancy”

And what I’m gonna have to tell you
Is we’re not playing anymore
In all truth I hate to lose you
But I’ve lost this way before
And it’s hard to let you know
That it’s hard to let you go
But just don’t try to say I didn’t try to tell you so
