You ran away with your conscience dear

There was a red flag waving in my ear saying

"Stay away, you've got something to fear"

Well why did I not choose to hear?

Well I am through with suffering

Gonna make better choices I don't need no wedding ring

I can sing, I can dance

But I can't make thus feeling cease

Cause deep in my soul you left a permanent crease and

We all got our cross to bear

Our Star of David, our dreadlocked hair

And oh yeah baby, I still care

And if you need some help

You know I'll always be there

Well it's been a strange year

You've been a very bad dog

As my fire went out

You'd put on another log

But it was worth never having any peace

And deep in my soul you left a permanent crease and

Repeat chorus

Some nights I thought I'd cry forever

I'd wish him away and then I'd turn into a beggar

But it was worth always scraping my knees

And deep in my soul you left a permanent crease

I wear my heart like a wrinkle on my sleeve

And I've got the aching love that only you can relieve

But I'm not afraid to go down with a sinking friend

I'm gonna live out my dreams even if they kill me in the end

Repeat chorus


Vonda Shepard
