Backup Lady (Everybody Gets Handed Down)

lyrics

Another day goes by,
Another day without my medicine.
I'm saving it for tonight.
You can sit alone
and profess your sacred innocence
on the telephone.
My wedding dress in blue,
you can toss it with the evidence,
all the bad times too.

I know you wanna be a star,
but I know where you really are.
Who will save you?

I'll be your backup lady.
When you come running she'll be there.
She'll forget all the maybe's
when you meet her at midnight on a public square.
Secrets travel far in this town.
It takes a man to ride the tangent plane.
It's time to say goodbye
to the mother of your child.
Sweet yet compassion-free
is what you used to be.
Everybody gets handed down

The couples at The Wren
now look at me and speculate,
Who's her handsome friend?
He still hangs around,
thinks he's heading for the pearly gates,
jumping up and down.
As long as I can walk,
we'll just have to sit and wait,
drinking on the clock.

I know you wanna be a star,
but I know where you really are.
Who will save you?

I'll be your backup lady.
When you come running she'll be there.
She'll forget all the maybe's
when you meet her at midnight on a public square.
Secrets travel far in this town.
It takes a man to ride the tangent plane.
It's time to say goodbye
to the mother of your child.
Sweet yet compassion-free
is what you used to be.
Everybody gets handed down
