You Trying To Set Me Up


Irvington swooped over us

And swallowed my soul whole

And I can't dare to leave the bar

Because it's just too close

To me

Now we

Are forced to run away together

And only visit our quacks

Once a month for our pills

Well, the thrill of having to do this

Has left my heart just so

Because I just can't stand to be

The man that takes care of you

AndI don't know how

To live at home

AndI don't know how

To be yours and

"Go where ever you"


When I'm afraid you'll ditch me

And drive off with my car

Somewhere whereI'll be stranded

Somewhere very far


Maybe you'll kill me

So woman, get away form me

And know

What I mean
