lyrics

Why Not It Be Me

When your questions weigh less than a flame
Go on and sip your tea
When your boredom needs someone to blame
Let indifference be my plea
But if you really want to talk to someone
Why not it be me?

When your strength surrenders to the night
You feel more defeated than Robert E. Lee
You want a treaty that you can sign
I’m not that guarantee
But if you wanna saunter in the moonlight
Why not it be me?

When your band packs up their things
You wanna march down to Tennessee
But you’ve already pawned off all your rings
You’re really missin’ your queen bee
What you really want is someone you can hum a tune to
So why not it be me?

When you start tellin’ yourself tales
That nobody has the key
You lock tears and truth inside
And joy is always overseas
I’ve seen men break this damn chain
So why not it be me?

Black and white thinking again
