Then Again

Album: Court Yard Hounds (2010)
  • He'd drive a mint green van and watch the Mexicans scatter
    Be the first to admit he thought it was funny as hell
    Now he's taken to flippin' off hippies at the river
    Yeah, I never really liked him but I would never tell

    Then again, I never did understand me
    But then again, I never did understand me

    I have bitten my tongue 'til I can taste the blood
    And I scream 'uncle' when you twist my arm
    I could say I was just too young
    But I haven't yet learned to trust my bleeding heart

    But then again, I never did understand me
    But then again, I never did understand me

    And just to keep the peace and quiet
    I'd forfeit my peace of mind
    Then again, I never did understand me

    Come for me and I'll be your canary
    And stay 'til then end when it's bad for my health
    Yeah, I can can forgive every Tom, Dick, or Harry
    But when it comes down to me
    I can't forgive myself

    But then again, I never did understand me
    But then again, I never did understand me

    Just to keep the peace and quiet
    I'd forfeit my peace of mind
    Then again, I never did understand me

    I lift myself up for you to wear me down
    And I do it every day as crazy as it seems
    It's such a little thing like when I catch my reflection
    I think, 'Girl don't you know you shouldn't wear those jeans?'

    But then again, I never did understand me
    But then again, I never did understand me

    And just to keep the peace and quiet
    I'd forfeit my peace of mind
    Then again, I never did understand
    But then again, I never did understand
    But then again, I never did understand me

    But then again, I never did understand me Writer/s: EMILY ROBISON
