Sit there and call me
a liar and a cheat
I just wish you'd pin a rose on me
now you won't even
come out and take a bow

cryin' wont help you now

now your poets
have all put down their pens
the only songs to sing
are those sung again
lonely just doesn't
look good on you somehow

cryin' wont help you now

I just keep on staring
into the black eyes of the truth
we'll have to learn to live apart somehow

cryin' wont help you now

    General CommentThis song is beautiful, the lyrics, the way he sings it.

    He sounds like a wise old man.

    General Commentdoes anyone know what 'pin a rose on me' means? great song, i think it's about someone who has done him wrong, and is trying to apologise and is crying, and he's saying 'no, stop. crying won't help you now' nbut he does forgive her, because lonely just doesn't look good on her

    General Commenti agree with jess-ka
    and then when he says

    now your poets
    have all put down their pens
    the only songs to sing
    are those sung again

    he's saying she can't think of anything more to say and all of her arguments are redundant

    i believe that when he says 'i just wish you'd pin a rose on me'
    he just wants her to give up and acknowledge that he is right so that she will stop fighting because she's making it worse
