Say you see through the folly but you do it for the fame
I'm fighting the jet stream drinking cheap wine on aeroplanes
And you're in LA not Chicago
Key under mat, I walk the dog, order in, home alone.

Found your letter on a full moon Sunday night
On your knees in ink you offered a ring, a real life
Pour the vodka and it dulls sharp knives
Beautiful poetry but the letter isn't for me and

You didn't really mean it
So I don't have to believe it
If you didn't mean to do it
Magical thinking gets us by

You sing for the aftershow those candy colored lips
But your age is showing and you gotta work harder for it
It's always easier with fresh men.
I'm just as clever
It's not techinally cheating if

I didn't really mean it
So you don't have to believe it
If I didn't mean to do it
Magical thinking gets us by

You're as fragile as porcelain
Fragile as porcelain

If you didn't really mean it
Then I don't have to believe it
If you didn't mean to do it
Magical thinking gets us by

Gotta get by
Gotta get by
Gotta get by

Fair weather friends...
