Lyrics

She’s not the first woman
To just up and walk away
And I’m surely not the first man
To try and beg her to stay
From the outside looking in
Must be the same old story
Cause everybody in this town
Seems to have an answer for me

I listen to friends of mine
They all think that I’ll be fine
All I’ve got to do is take it day by day
They know I’m off the deep end
There’s no need to pretend
Still I try to believe them anyway
The things that people say

Under the Friday night lights
I’m hearing take it like a man
Then in the Sunday morning sermon
It’s all part of a grander plan
Over beers in the backyard
Somebody knows a girl or two
And at the diner downtown their serving
She never was right for you

I listen to friends of mine
They all think that I’ll be fine
All I’ve got to do is take it day by day
They know I’m off the deep end
There’s no need to pretend
Still I try to believe them anyway
The things that people say

The neighbor and my brother
The preacher and my mother
They all think they know
But their words just go
In one ear- and out the other

I listen to friends of mine
They all think that I’ll be fine
All I’ve got to do is take it day by day
They know I’m off the deep end
There’s no need to pretend
Still I try to believe them anyway
The things that people say
