"Ribbons 'round My Tongue" as written by and Vogel Stephens....
oh lady fair, your stranglin' hair ribbons 'round my tongue.
i try to speak [but] my thoughts grow weak from all the yarns you've spun.
i heard them say that evil may walk in beauties' shoes.

but if ever i could love myself
then i'll stop loving you.

were you out the other night flirting with all my friends?
i heard you told a joke or two with my name at the end.
come 'round home, i'm all alone, and tell me that just ain't true.

but if ever i could love myself
then i'll stop loving you.

when you're gone, i'll carry on, it's never meant to last.
i'd much prefer to sit alone and drink about the past.
so i say "some how, some way" till i believe it's true.

but if ever i could love myself
then i'll stop loving you.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song. It's along the lines of most of their songs, insecurities.. About a girl that treats him badly that he loves and feels he doesn't deserve, and hates her for it.. He won't break it off himself, but will get over it when it's done.. Just to move on to the next girl that will do the same thing.
