I can tell we don't belong
by the way you look in my eyes
i can bet you moved right on
baby cause i'm just another good bye
i can tell its over now before you ever said a word to me
you can take a final bow honey cause your act is like a 3rd degree

whoa you've struck the last match baby
you've got me burning
what did i do to deserve this burning
you bring me down when i'm all i've got
i never know cause my mind keeps turning
why oh why
you're only happy when i'm not


i can tell thats somethings wrong
by the way you look in my eyes
i can bet the warmth is gone cause honey your stare is like the black ice

cause you lit this fire
what did i do to deserve this burning
you bring me down when i'm all i've got
i never know cause my mind keeps turning
why oh why
you're only happy when i'm not

you've got me burning
you've got me burning baby

what did i do to deserve this burning
you bring me down when i'm all i've got
i never know cause my mind keeps turning
why oh why
you're only happy when i'm not

    General CommentWell this is the relationship album, eh?

    I love the jazzy-ness of the final phrase in each line. Musically delicious. Then the guitars copy it by the chorus, nice.

    My mom was like this with my dad once they were divorced. If he was happy, she wasn't. And no one deserves that. Never do this to another person, the hate just isn't worth it. Better to let them alone.
