First the mic, then a half cigarette
Singing Cathy's clown
That's the man 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 callin' someone
Such a familiar name
I'm so glad that my memories 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

Here today and expected to stay on and on and on
I'm tired, I'm tired
Lookin' out on the substitute scene
Still goin' strong

Xo, mom, it's okay, 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
