Kay Hanley – Faded Dress lyrics

Like a grade school valentine
My heart is asking and aching all the time
When are you gonna know?
As near as time gets, you're moving awful slow
So let's talk about the way the world should be
It's not fair, when I'm cast as Gatsby
And I should have seen you coming like a speeding car
But you know me perennial Cassandra

If you wanna hurt me it's an unqualified success
I don't wanna hang around like a faded dress

When I was young I thought
That I'd remember everything that I'd been taught
Now it's clear I never learned anything
Cause I come up empty, when it comes to you dear
So let's talk about just how it's gonna be
Forget the love that once made her happy
Cause I got a sneaking feeling about you
Such as you've got other better things to do

If you wanna hurt me it's an unqualified success
I don't wanna hang around like a faded dress
On the way out
On the way out

If worry is the color of currency
Then i'll pay the will for this movie
And I can't help but watch it again and again
Cause at the end when I rewind it you're right back with me

Like a grade school valentine
My heart is asking and aching all the time
And I got a sneaking feeling about you
Such as you've got other better things to do

If you wanna hurt me it's an unqualified success
I don't wanna hang around like a faded dress
I don't wanna hang around like a faded dress
I don't wanna hang around like a faded dress
On the way out
On the way out
On the way out
