Genie On A Table Top

Album: Famous Last Words (1993)
  • I guess it's only the men
    Who get fucked now and again
    We take our chicks to the mall,
    We wait in parking stalls
    And when we come home too late,
    She's pissed that she had to wait
    And my excuse not to call,
    It never worked at all

    Time to wake up
    Where's your daughter?
    Hurts to break up,
    She was stronger
    All my friends say,
    Please don't love her
    What did I gain?
    Now I miss her so

    I used to hate the lipstick
    It stained and tasted so sick
    The pantyhose and the bras,
    She threw on my guitars
    Shit fuck I made a mistake,
    I thought I needed a break
    The truth is I'm such a dick,
    It's broke and can't be fixed

    Time to wake up
    Where's your daughter?
    Hurts to break up,
    She was stronger
    All my friends say,
    Please don't love her
    What did I gain?
    Now I miss her so

    If you wanna call it a heartache,
    Then I shouldn't regret those things, I miss her
    If you want the pain to go away,
    Better suck up your pride and admit you lost her
    Let her go, move on, let her go, move on, let her go

    Time to wake up
    Where's your daughter?
    Hurts to break up,
    She was stronger
    All my friends say,
    Please don't love her
    What did I gain?
    Now I miss her so

    Move on, let her go, move on, let her go,
    Move on, let her go, move on, let her go
