Jaded Lover

It won't be but a week or two
You'll be out loving someone new
Seems like it's happened a hundred times before
I can see you've been spreading yourself thin too
It's a lonely stage we're going through
Don't get up I can find my own way to the door

I can see you are an angel
Whose wings just won't unfold
Tune up your heart, polish your old halo
The only kind of man that you ever wanted
Was the one that you knew you'd never hold very long

Sitting there crying like I'm the first one to go
You may have thirty lovers behind you
I can feel you but I sure can't find you
Seems like you would've found your own self by now
Late at night your old lover's tears come back
Faces in your dreams, fingers in your back
Voices of the memories, crying out loud


What a joyous sight to see you in your sleep
I believe I'm leavin', I'm in too deep
That seems easy enough for a man to say
We would never agree if we talked all night
Things are getting kinda heavy, I'm traveling light
Goodbye you jaded lover, you undercover queen for a day
