Sometimes I wonder where you're comin' from
When you roll in like thunder just to turn around and run
It's a good thing I don't need you to stay.
You smell like moonlight and early morning rain
Pray tell the fool that surrenders to your pain
Or find a cure for your decay.
You're at your best with an ache in your chest
And that worn out old song that you play
Only Jesus and you long to teach us
Should no one be left to betray.
I don't know the answer but I know who to blame
You can choose the dancer
Or you can choose the flame
I think you'll find they're one and the same.
It doesn't have to be this way.
You're at your best with an ache in your chest
And that worn out old song that you play
Only Jesus and you long to teach us
Should no one be left to betray.
I don't know the answer but I know who to blame
Pray tell the fool who surrenders to your pain
It's a good thing I don't need you to stay.
Sometimes I wonder where you're comin' from
When you roll in like thunder just to turn around and run
It's a good thing I don't need you to stay.
It doesn't have to be this way...
