Track Name: Things I Do
Seems like I should have known better than to turn my head like it didn't matter. Why do I do the things I do when I know I am losing you?
It was supposed to be a surprise, me showing up, you thought I was working. Why do I do the things I do when I know I am losing you?
Thought you'd be happy to see me but you said, “What the hell are you doing here?” Why do I do the things I do when I know I am losing you?
You pushed me away from him. He said “Buddy calm down,” you were so embarrassed. Seems like I should have known better than to turn my head like it didn't matter. Why do I do the things I do when I know I am losing you?
Track Name: Try Again
Somewhere between drunkenness and chivalry, I hold the door open and let her pass through. She says thanks to me in a British accent and I try to answer her in the same voice. She laughs at me, says “What was that supposed to be?” I say “I’m sorry, I’m from a different part of the country.” She says “Come on baby, try again.”
Somewhere between drunkenness and sincerity, I smile at her for just a little too long. Charlie’s drinking wine, Judy's laughing at him, she says “I forget that you’re such a fancy guy.” He tips his hat, says “M’lady, do you come here often?” I swear I’ve seen them do this one a couple times before. Come on baby, try again.
Somewhere between drunkenness and charity, she puts her hand on the sleeve of my coat. She says “I’ve missed this.” I say “I know, I’ve missed you too.” She says, “I was actually talking about your coat.” She makes me laugh, oh how she makes me laugh. I just let my head sink down and fake some deep sobs. Come on baby, try again.
Somewhere between drunkenness and jealousy, I watch her talking to some old friend. What a reunion, he recognized her across the room. How many years could there be to catch up on? And somewhere between drunkenness and honesty, I make a silent toast to the things that I do and don’t miss. Come on baby, try again.
