Waltz 2 XO Lyrics

First the mic then a half cigarette - Singing cathy's clown
That's the man that she's married to now
That's the girl - that he takes around town
She appears composed - so she is I suppose - Who can really tell?
She shows no emotion at all - Stares into space like a dead china doll

I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow

Now she's done - and they're calling someone - Such a familiar name
I'm so glad that my memory's remote
Cause I'm doing just fine hour to hour note to note
Here it is - the revenge to the tune - "You're no good
You're no good you're no good you're no good"
Can't you tell - that it's well understood?

I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow

I'm here today and expected to stay - on - and on- and on
I'm tired - I'm tired

Looking out on the substitute scene - Still going strong
XO, mom - It's ok, it's alright, nothing's wrong
Tell mr. man with impossible plans - to just leave me alone
In the place where I make no mistakes - In the place where I have what it takes

I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow
I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow
I'm never gonna know you now, but I'm gonna love you anyhow
