  • Lay there and hate me
    Lay there and burn
    One side to the other
    You toss and turn
    Never trust a woman, never trust a woman
    Who loves the blues

    Mistake number one, I made it three times today
    We'd best talk over how there is nothing left to say
    I feel like an underpaid concubine
    Who has overstayed her welcome

    You gave me an eight-page letter, front and back
    Written in your favorite colors, blood and black
    Choose your words as careful as you'd choose your own gravestone
    You lay there and hate me, better than being alone
    Had to fight your way in, you got to fight your way out
    Ain't no fool like the fool you love
    So let me hear you shout

    Shake down, break down
    Just can't sit still
    You cut off your hair and sold it
    For your pretty little pill
    I've learned some things about myself I wish I didn't know

    You gave me an eight-page letter, from front and back
    Written in your favorite colors, blood and black
    You choose your words as careful as you'd choose your own gravestone
    You lay there and hate me, better than being alone
    Had to fight your way in, you got to fight your way out
    Ain't no fool like the one you love
    Now let me hear you, hear you shout

    Lay there and hate me
    Cold as a stone
    I just hope it's better than sitting alone
    Never trust a woman who loves the blues

    Gave me an eight-page letter, front and back
    Written in your favorite colors, blood and black
    You choose your words as careful as you'd choose your own gravestone
    Lay there and hate me, better than being alone
    Had to fight your way in, now you got to fight your way out
    Ain't no fool like the fool you love
    So let me hear you, let me hear you shout

    I said let me her you, let me hear you
    Let me hear you shout!
    Yeah, yeah
    You just lay there with a 8 page letter
    With your favorite colors, blood and black
