Jenny Lewis – Dogwood lyrics
[Verse 1]
The dogwood's in bloom
Take off your shoes
You cannot choose your family, oh
There's nothing we can do
But screw
And booze and amphetamines, oh

[Pre-Chorus]
In the springtime, in a little house
I was determined to work it out
Oh, in the springtime, in the house
The neighbors heard us scream and shout

[Chorus]
And somewhere a screw got loose along the way
And your manners have gone away
And I believe that there will come a day
I believe that you will chase me away

[Verse 2]
So that you can prove
Love is not enough for you
There's nothing I can do
'Cause I fell in love with you

[Pre-Chorus]
In the springtime, in a little house
I was determined to work it out
Oh, in the springtime, in a little house
I never told you I had my doubts

[Chorus]
Somewhere a screw got loose along the way
And our manners have gone away
And I believe that there will come a day
I believe that you will chase me away

[Verse 3]
So that you can prove
Love is not enough for you
You thought I was your muse
But all along it was you

[Outro]
And the dogwood's in bloom
There's nothing we can do
But screw, oh
