WHEN IT COMES FROM ONE OF THE GUYS

Speak no evil
Tell no lies
Keep it simple
Look 'em in the eyes
Hey now buddy
You took me by surprise
You don't expect it when it comes from one of the guys

I hear you talking loud and clear
I have to ask myself what am I doing here?
I keep returning
but I'm changing
Changing my disguise
You don't expect it when it comes from one of the guys

Lived my whole life in this town
And Iíve seen it up and I have seen it down
I can't seem to get adjusted
To losing faith in those I trusted

Holy moley
These times are tough
Everybody wants to play so rough
Come on people
Iím here to call your bluff
You let me know when you've had enough

I traveled this world round
And Iíve seen it up and i have seen it down
I can't seem to get adjusted
To losing faith in those i trusted

Ain't she pretty?
Ain't she fine?
Ain't that something that shouldn't cross your mind?
When I get older
Maybe that's when Iíll get wise
They don't expect it
When it comes from one of those guys
You don't expect it
When it comes from one of the guys
