New Thing Now Submit Correct Lyrics

This is your new thing now
Naked as a rose
Everything exposed
But not quite
This is your new thing now
Cards out on the table
A genius with no label
But not quite, not quite

God, I swear it's good to be back home
Waiting for the newest rolling stone
All the other girls are still at war
The best and worst of 1994
Sometimes I see the half, not the whole
Sometimes I see the face and not the soul
Sometimes I think this place has his no part
For anyone who ever had a heart

And this is your new thing now
And it looks so good in print
Just a poet and her pimps
But not quite
This is your new thing now
A prom dress and a sneer
The woman of the year
But not quite, not quite

And G, it's good to see a dream come true
People smile and bless all over you
Mixing up those latest junkie-isms
And all the pretty terms of religion
And don't you love the leader of the band
Equal parts butt head and Peter Pan
All the other kids are sad again
And a legend's not a legend 'til it ends

And this is your new thing now
And it makes the whole world spin
It's as least as old as sin
But not quite
This is your new thing now
And now you're turning grinning
But maybe no one's listening
And you might lose it all my darling, yes you might

This is your new thing now
And it feels so good to doubt you
I could almost live without you
But not quite, not quite
Not quite, not quite
