I guess it was yourself you were involved with.
I would have sworn it was me.
I might have found out sooner if
You'd only let me close enough to see.

That ain't no way to treat a lady.
No way to treat your baby
Your woman, your friend.
That ain't no way to treat a lady, no way
But maybe it's a way for us to end.

I was only bein' a picture
With all the colors I know,
While you were busy looking into
Wide blue mirrors and lovin' the show.

That ain't no way to treat a lady
No way to treat your baby
Your woman, your friend.
That ain't no way to treat a lady, no way
But maybe it's a way for us to end.

There's a funny kind of consolation
Keepin' me sane
And I'd really like to share it
Crawl on deep in my brain.
You see the times you never felt me
Lovin' you or needin' you
So leavin' you now
You still won't know how to feel the pain.

I was lookin' out for my happiness
While you were lookin' within,
And before you know your own reflection
Always starts to tire you and it's happened again.

That ain't no way to treat a lady
No way to treat your baby
Your woman, your friend.
That ain't no way to treat a lady, no way
But maybe it's a way for us to end.

That ain't no way to treat a lady
No way to treat your baby
Your woman, your friend.
That ain't no way to treat a lady, no way
But maybe it's a way for us to end.
