soon you will be leaving your man - lyrics by bright eyes

he always gets so mad
at things you laugh at
"don't get so worked up." you'd say
but on the back deck
you admit that
you haven't felt much like laughing lately anyway.
and then i say,
"well, that could change."

i noticed how you waste no time
making your way
across the room.
you leave a wake of tongues
still waving
after you

it isn't no coincidence
where you finally choose to stand
i know soon
soon you'll be leaving
your man

well it's a sweet smile
and then a denial
hey, you're just trying to be nice
but there's a meaning
to every fleeting
action you unconsciously decide
and the clocks they chime
and now it's time

i know you try to play it cool
but there are some thoughts
you just can't hide
only in your
closest friends
would you confide

the way you say
you'll be seeing me, oh like it's so offhand
i guess soon
soon you will be leaving your man

you look at me so boldly now. you have no lack
of confidence
it's just those lessons on sublety
you missed
i know you dream of saving me
like i'm some plane
that you could land
but when you fly
you'll be leaving your man
