Worse

from Folk Remedy

You ask me for some money, I say it don't grow on trees
So you go downtown and make yourself a hundred with ease
I ask you how you did it and you simply say with these now go away
The only thing that's worse than your leaving, is when you stay

You say I'll never reach nirvana I'd make a shitty hindu
We do tai-chi you say "you stare at me, just like old men do"
Can't express the love for you mess up the mesh of my flesh and sinew, so I pray
The only thing that's worse than your leaving, is when you stay

Ten times I twist the tournequet that's wrapped around my heart
When you swing and miss I'm born again leave the logic to Descarte
The voodoo you do beats the dude who read my tarot cards the other day
The only thing that's worse than your leaving, is when you stay

A mystery to me my key no longer fits your lock
I know you think I suck even though you say I rock
You rage and jerk and do your Kirk, force me to be your Spock, I calmly say
The only thing that's worse than your leaving, is when you stay

Well your round algonquin goyem, wouldn't understand
Your carnal crude cavorting with a neanderthal man
You well read deadhead wrote a note and a check for a grand, are you ok?
The only thing that's worse than your leaving, is when you stay

True story
If anybody asks you don't say you play guitar
It's not that I'm embarassed they just don't know who you are
Come to think of it I'll just be a minute why don't you wait inside the car, I say ok
Because the only thing that's worse than your leaving, is when you stay
