Don't tell me about the nature of desire
I sit and watch you
Twisted, tangled in the wire
I'm on the road now
And you're glad to see me go
I guess you'll sit outside
And watch your flowers grow.

Oh, I never knew the rounds
I'd take for loving you.
I hope you're happy with your life
I guess you'll sleep along tonight.

I used to wonder
How you kept me down so long
I'm glad to say
That now I'm back where I belong.
I'm on the road now
And I'm wishing I was fast asleep
I thinking of the promises
You never seem to keep.

Oh, I never knew the rounds
I'd take for loving you.
I hope you're happy with your life
I guess you'll sleep along tonight.

Don't try and change my mind.
There's nothing left to say.
Yea you've been buying time
But now you're gonna pay.
So don't tell me
About the nature of desire
I sit and watch you
Twisted, tangled in the wire.
I'm on the road now
And I'm glad to see me go.
I guess I'll sit outside
And watch the flowers grow.

Oh, I never knew the rounds
I'd take for loving you.
I hope you're happy with your life
I guess you'll sleep along tonight.
