It's like a pencil with erasers at both ends
I want it all but we're dealing in percents
And these activities that you have engaged in
This is the politics of seeing you dance with him
We began with concluding remarks
Pick up the pieces and examine the parts
Your words always cut when they're clichй
But here's my knife because I came for the buffet


This is the way it goes
With you a part of it
Nervously saying words
That oh-so-tightly fit
A mark beneath the chin (Uh Uh)
I've caught you once again
It's in the way you sell every word and phrase
And leaving me to know how much the meaning weighs
Saying that but meaning this (Uh Uh)
Using hands for emphasis
(Oh Ho) x7


You'd like to think that you're the best part of me
But I confess there is nothing left of you here (nothing left of you here)
These parallels and silly games
Hide your face and say the name
Say the name (say the name)


This is the way it goes
With you a part of it
Nervously saying words
That oh-so-tightly fit
A mark beneath the chin (Uh Uh)
And I've caught you once again
It's in the way you sell every word and phrase
And leaving me to know how much the meaning weighs
Saying that but meaning this (Uh Uh)
Your tears for emphasis


(Ahhhh)
There's that smile again (there's that smile again)
You fake it and I follow you right in
What a fool I've been
To fall for it each time


This is the way it goes
With you a part of it
Nervously saying words
That oh-so-tightly fit
It's in the way you sell every word and phrase
And leaving me to know how much the meaning weighs
This is the way it goes
With you a part of it
Nervously saying words
That oh-so-tightly fit
It's in the way you sell every word and phrase
And leaving me to know how much the meaning weighs
(Oh Ho)
(Oh Ho)
(Oh Ho)
(Oh Ho)
(Oh Ho)


That dress and those eyes are telling white white lies
White white lies
That dress and those eyes are telling white white lies
White white lies
