Marshall Crenshaw – Stop Doing That lyrics

(m. Crenshaw)

Stop doing that
Maybe I've missed my chance
To talk to you as a friend
But stop doing that
That's what I'm gonna say
When you and I meet again
I thought the rumors were lies
Until I saw for myself
Not your better watch out
Or you're soon gonna find
That you're on the losing side
Of the battle line
Stop doing that
Don't try to lie to me
The way you lie to yourself
Stop doing that
Don't say that things you do
Shouldn't matter to anyone else
Somewhere in my heart
There will always be a place
For you and all the moments we shared
When we both believed
There was a reason to care
We used to live on the run
Not so long ago
And tt was all about fun
Fun and self discovery
And now you say nothing's changed...
Better look again
'cause the way you're living now...
It looks more like you're dying to me
You look like walking misery
Stop doing that
Why should I keep on telling you?
You won't stop doing that
All your wreckless self-indulgence
Your disregard for the mess you're creating
Don't tell me, I know it's hard...
Now I don't know where to find you
But if you were here
I'd grab you by the collar
And whisper in your ear
Stop doing that
