Oh my girl I used to see your face so clear
But it's been gone for so long
I can't make it appear
But in my dreams, I remember every feature
Until I wake up to an imaginative creature

Now we walk like we're walking on a wire
We tried to fly but we could not get no higher
Because all you see are limousines and diamonds
I tried to see the good points but I can't find one

Tell me a tall tale...
About all the letters you get in the mail
Tell me those stories I adore
About all your voices you try to ignore

I'm going to try and fly back to you someday
But every step leads me further away
I could turn back now but baby then you win
Besides I can't seem to find the car that I came in

Tell me a tall tale...
About all the letters you get in the mail
Tell me those stories I adore

Oh, you went down to main street to see your man
Buy whatever he was selling then you came back again
I just don't understand the inflection in your voice
You would change me any day if you had the choice

Tell me a tall tale...
About all the letters you get in the mail
Tell me those stories I adore
About all your voices you try to ignore
