lyrics

If you go down that road
I will try not to follow.
I will turn the other way,
but I hope that you would stay.

I cooked the food for us to eat
but you don't have to swallow
just be sweet and descreet
in your method of disposal.

Please don't hurt my pride if you don't have to.
Your sticks and stones, sighs and groans,
when you use that tone it cuts into me.

Into bed I tuck my feet,
and I ask you what to read.
You look at me, flip on your side
and turn off the light.

Your back it feels cold,
and the thought that's always haunted me
creeps beneath the sheets
and I know you've never wanted me.

Please don't hurt my pride if you don't have to.
Your sticks and stones, sighs and groans,
when you use that tone it cuts into me.

There's a girl down the street
and I see when your eyes meet.
I will try not to pry.
I will try not to cry.

When the day does arrive
that you turn to me and say goodbye.
Just be sweet and discreet
in your method of disposal.
