Suzy Bogguss – Something Up My Sleeve lyrics

I can't go on, the feelin's gone,
I don't know where
I reach down deep inside my heart,there's nothing there
I know I can't stay with him,
Still I don't want to leave
I wish I had something up my sleeve

I can't give in,and I can't win
'cause she won't fight
She tells me there's nothing
Wrong but nothin's right
No matter what I offer,it's never what she needs
I wish I had something up my sleeve

I can't pretend
(she's sorry,i can tell)
I wish I could
(I know the feeling well)
It's just no good
It looks like the spell is broken

My magic words
(it's not working anymore)
My sleight of hand
(we've been through it all before)
My song and dance
If I can make it through the door,
It's over


I wish I had the power to make us both
I wish I had something up my sleeve
I wish I had something up my sleeve
