Words & Music by Vonda Shepard

You ran away with your conscience dear
There was a red flag waving in my ear saying
"Stay away, you've got something to fear"
Well why did I not choose to hear?
Well I am through with suffering
Gonna make better choices I don't need no wedding ring
I can sing, I can dance
But I can't make thus feeling cease
Cause deep in my soul you left a permanent crease and

We all got our cross to bear
Our Star of David, our dreadlocked hair
And oh yeah baby, I still care
And if you need some help
You know I'll always be there

Well it's been a strange year
You've been a very bad dog
As my fire went out
You'd put on another log
But it was worth never having any peace
And deep in my soul you left a permanent crease and

Repeat chorus

Some nights I thought I'd cry forever
I'd wish him away and then I'd turn into a beggar
But it was worth always scraping my knees
And deep in my soul you left a permanent crease

I wear my heart like a wrinkle on my sleeve

And I've got the aching love that only you can relieve
But I'm not afraid to go down with a sinking friend
I'm gonna live out my dreams even if they kill me in the end

Repeat chorus
