"Smart in a Stupid Way" as written by David Francis Baerwald and David Ricketts....
She had eyes like crazy diamonds
And you ran with feet of clay
they rolled the windows tight as they would go
It was a smoggy day
She looked up and asked me if I ever had a lover that I did not betray
And I turned on the radio and I looked the other way
She said you're smart, but in a stupid way

[Chorus]
And this is the price that you pay
For being smart in a stupid way
You stand there staring while you lover walks away
Being smart, in a stupid way

The doors they close like eyelids
The train just pulled away
Sometimes I smell the perfume that she was wearing that day
And i wonder if there's anyone that i'll ever love in any way
Maybe I'll grow up and be good someday
Maybe this pain I feel will go away

[Chorus]

So why is my heart so hollow
Why are my dreams so shallow
And why don't I ever have anything else to say
And why is my love so far away

[Chorus]
