when you came back from Trenton 
all the sparkle was gone
and you stood in the shadow 
and the curtains were drawn

Am                            C                     G6
and i know you're lying and you know you're lying too
Am            C                                G6+riff
that is just about the only thing i know about you

when you pocketed your eyeshadow 
and you picked up the phone
stepped out on the balcony 
and drank in the drone

and i know you're leaving and you know you're leaving too
that is just about the only thing i know about you

when you stop on the sidewalk 
and you looked up above you
warm wet air came down to shelter me 
how much do i love you?

well you know you're dying and i know you're dying too
that is just about the only thing i know about you
