Elizabeth Lyrics

by Airborne Toxic Event

Theres a distance in your eyes
Thats why the smile is always such a surprise
When you call and you talk to me
I wonder which person youre going to be

She said all your songs are sad songs
Why do you always have to see the worst of it?
Could you write me just one love song?
Put my name somewhere in the middle of it
Its not hard to write Elizabeth
just close your eyes boy and take your best guess
cause the truth is hard isnt it?
She said Ill be listening in my favorite white dress

All these quiet afternoons
She said I wonder if I've given up my love too soon
As her hair fell from her curls
I said youre pretty uptight for a Mexican girl

She said all your songs are sad songs
Why do you always have to make me feel like shit?
Could you write me just one love song?
Put my name somewhere in the middle of it
And if you call the song Elizabeth
All my friends will know that its about me
Cause the truth is hard isnt it?
But don't take too long I just know youll come back to me

I said all these songs are love songs
Just love at times can make you feel like shit
So you write a string of words down
Its better if theres some truth in it
Its true I love you Elizabeth
I love the way you move in that silly white dress
Cause the truth is hard to admit
I've never known love
this is just my best guess
