Why don’t you cry for me Baby?

Help me make it through

Why don’t you see me lately?

I’m sad that I’m true


I looked up the page and your portrait it was mine

Knew it was the only

one of its kind

I pulled out my money on the run

Did not mean to hurt any one



But I got to sing it, baby

And tell it for fun

Might as well defend the whole body

I’m in love with someone


Several years of rubies and pearls at her breast

She’s a demon, she’s a demon, she’s a demon lover

Just like all the rest

Or else she’s billing out her wings

In the many shades of contentment she brings

I got to hide it baby

Because of you

And I hope that you’re proud now honey

It’s all I can do


I lit the darkness, darling

Come and build up my mind

And I can see the likeness baby

Your pain had to find


Is it any mystery how we come to fall

In and out of love when sympathy’s so small?

And I never meaning for some tears to come

Still you leave your silken flings all undone


Why don’t you call me sugar?

Like you used to do

I know you kisses are pure poison

I’m a-counting on you


And I know that you heads half crazy

And I’m walk crawling too

And lets make some hoops up Daisy

I’m a-counting on you

    My InterpretationI think this song is basically about the "roller coaster" of being in a relationship with an unstable woman, and dealing with the uncertainty of the inevitable breakup. The story sort of starts at the end of the relationship where he's wondering whats going on. Women usually go quiet and ignore their lover right before a breakup. He's sort of blaming himself for how things are going, then he realizes that they're both to blame(maybe her more than him) Then he realizes how much he needs her and is going to miss her despite her general coldness and other flaws. Really is the perfect depiction of appx. 95% of modern relationships. Sad... but so honest and very true.
