lyrics

A - F#m7 - C#min7 - E - A
A troubled man and his death wish, turns away from one last kiss
Never quite sure when to stop, a glass of wine waiting to drop
The broken road beneath his feet, do you know the man mystique?
The world is just a writers toy, and a choking hazard for this boy
Punky’s love is for another one, but I can never get enough

A - F#min7 - B7 - Bm7
Why couldn’t you just leave it alone
instead of finding the best woman that you’ve ever known
Honesty will cut you down
But nothing’s gonna hurt you baby, til you touch the ground
so come on, so come on

Morning on this shattered globe, dressed but nowhere left to go
Frightening how real it gets, with someone that you’ve barely met
Introductions hardly had, when you want something that bad
Nothing else has come this close, to those paws around your throat

Why couldn’t you just leave it alone
instead of finding the best woman that you’ve ever known
Honesty will cut you down
But nothing’s gonna hurt you baby, til you touch the ground
so come on, so come on

Forbidden fruit on an apple tree, tastes of grapes and sweet cherries
Only now I’ve learned the truth, everything you’ve done comes back to you
Sometimes I can fake the game, but a winner shouldn’t feel ashamed
To be victorious again, in falling for another friend
Maybe someone will set me straight, tell me that I’m out too late
But this sunrise is really great, and this time ‘round might be my fate

Why couldn’t you just leave it alone
instead of finding the best woman that you’ve ever known
Honesty will cut you down
But nothing’s gonna hurt you baby, til you touch the ground
so come on, so come on
