A certain amount of vanity is good; it keeps you centered and looking sharp. However, it’s easy to get carried away…
from the album Better Liar, 2009
When I finally worked up the nerve
I guess I got what I deserved
I said you were heaven to me
C D G G7
And you just agreed
Why don’t you go fuck yourself?
Cause you really don’t love no one else
Under the makeup and hair
C D G
There ain’t nobody there.
You dragged me from right into wrong
That summer was hot and long
Then you went back to that other man
now I understand.
I could use fancier chords
An’ I could use fancier words
But it’s pretty straightforward to me
I’m sure you agree,
(and even if you don’t)
(You can take my heart, just leave the bottle…)
