Jewel – Marital Carnival lyrics

You come home, you look kind of frantic
Too bad cause I feel romantic
I know you're stressed out again
Tonight - I guess - that we're just friends again
You know I'm really not the type to compete
I hope your meetings were filled with lots of good 'meet'
And your appointments have lots of good 'ointments'
To soothe what you could never could satisfy

*** CHORUS ***
Cause I don't care like I did a minute ago
I tried to love you but it was just too stressful though
It's like leavin' your boots on when you go swimming
But I never will fight for what doesn't want winning

You wake up - I'm doing cartwheels
You're grumpy
Said, "Try and see how I feel"
I have, it just wasn't no fun
It's hard enough just waking up next to one
If you were oatmeal - you'd just look for lumps
If you were sweet I'd call you sugarbumps
If you were the sunshine you'd say I was pain
Well I am tired of this capricious game

*** Chorus

Oh Marital Carnival
Oh Marital Carnival
Oh Marital Carnival
I want to get off...

Sweetheart, I'm gonna find myself a ride
One that doesn't bring me down this time
One that isn't always on the run
One that can have good old fashioned fun
Cause sweetheart the purpose of my life is nothing more
Than to simply be adored
And I'm just like a special chocolate treat
I ain't no piece of leftover hot dogs...

*** Chorus ***

I never will fight for
I never will fight for
I never will fight for what doesn't want winning
