lyrics

You told me you loved me
But that was so long ago
I said that I needed you
So where did all the love & needing go
I don’t know

You found yourself a taller man
He may be taller but he’s coming up short on charm
And it’s convenient if you need to reach the top shelf
Baby but it’s like conversing with a brick wall

I’m on the run from the government
They’re trying to steal my pay
You once called me a lunatic
But the tax man doesn’t seem to see it that way

I know that you ain’t no doctor
But you sure made me feel a whole lot better some days
If you could pay a visit to the man to get me off the hook
just go and tell ‘em I’m completely insane

And while it’s true we had a brief romance
under different circumstances
we could have had it all
But in love there’s never second chances
Now we’re back to sideways glances
Never thought we’d fall so far

I'm gonna run for prime minister
I got some good world views
I know you think I'm too immature
So I won't be counting on a vote from you
But I'm close with my constituents
A filled up ashtray and a forty ounce bottle of booze
And I could help you get a job as finance minister
And you could pay our foreign debt with IOUs

[chorus]

But we fell hard
Didn't realize just how good you were
At breaking things apart
Didn't know that I was folding in a game of hearts
I didn't see that this was in the cards

You told me you loved me
But that was so long ago
I said that I needed you
So where did all the love & needing go
I don’t know

I fell in love with a better girl
when I say better I mean literally very way
I've got a hundred year plan
She's included in it
So I know just how I'll be spending my days

[chorus]
