"Something up My Sleeve" as written by and Verlon/ragsdale Thompson....
I can't go on - the feeling's gone - I don't know where
I reach down deep inside my heart - there's nothing there
I know I can't stay with him - but I don't want to leave
I wish I had something up my sleeve

I can't give in, but I can't win, 'cause she won't fight
She tells me that nothing's wrong and nothing's right
No matter what I offer, it's never what she needs
I wish I had something up my sleeve

I can't pretend

She's sorry, I can tell

I wish I could

I know the feeling well

It's just no good

Looks like the spell is broken

My magic words

It's not working anymore

My sleight of hand

We've been through it all before

My song and dance

If I can make it through the door, it's over

I wish I had the power to make us both believe
I wish I had something up my sleeve
