So Tragic We Won't Hear From Him Again

first the mic then a half cigarette

singing Cathy's clown

that's the man she's married to now

that's the girl that he takes around town

she appears composed, so she is, I suppose

who can really tell

she shows no emotion at all

stares into space like a dead china doll I

'm never gonna know you now

but I'm gonna love you anyhow

now she's done and they're calling someone

such a familiar name

I'm so glad that my memories remote '

cause I'm doing just fine hour to hour, note to note

here it is the revenge to the tune

you're no good you're no good,

you're no good, you're no good

can't you tell that it's well understood

I'm never gonna know you now

but I'm gonna love you anyhow

I'm here today and expected to stay on and on and on

I'm tired, I'm tired

looking out on the substitute scene still going strong

XO, mom, it's ok, it's alright, nothing's wrong

tell Mr. Man with impossible plans

to just leave me alone

in the place where I make no mistakes

in the place where I have what it takes

I'm never gonna know you now

but I'm gonna love you anyhow

I'm never gonna know you now

but I'm gonna love you anyhow

I'm never gonna know you now

but I'm gonna love you anyhow

<br />
Many of his songs he writes almost like the quatrains of Nostradamus. Many don't understand his lyrics. My favorite in this song is<br />
<br />
"tell Mr. Man with impossible plans <br />
<br />
to just leave me alone <br />
<br />
in the place where I make no mistakes <br />
<br />
in the place where I have what it takes "<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
A poetic way of saying "don't **** with my head. "
