The Landlord or the Guest

 


NO SHOW

Oh donít act so surprised
To hear itís cominí down
You brought it on yourself
Everything comes around
   
Youíve been a long no show
But you donít really know
How to let go

Youíre not above it all
The wind donít blow for you
I read your cup of tea
Said youíll find something new

Youíve been a long no show
But you donít really know
How to let go

Oh I gave you too much of my dream
Oh I gave you too much of my dream
My dream

Down on the boulevard
Nobody calls your name
Youíre like invisible
A moth without a flame

Youíve been a long no show
But you donít really know
How to let go

I tossed your photographs into the riverbed
I burned your letters too
Memorized every word you said

Youíve been a long no show
But you donít really know
How to let go

Oh I gave you too much of my dream
Oh I gave you too much of my dream
My dream

So letís abbreviate
The time we wasted here
And Iíll cooperate
I might even shed a tear

Youíve been a long no show
But you donít really know
How to let go

Oh donít act so surprised
To hear itís cominí down
