lirik lagu 4th time around – oren lavie


when she said, “don’t waste your words
they’re just lies,” i cried she was deaf
and she worked on my face until breaking my eyes
then said, “what else you got left?”

it was then that i got up to leave
but she said, “don’t forget
everybody must give something back
for something they get”

i stood there and hummed
i tapped on her drum and asked her how come
and she b-ttoned her boot and straightened her suit
then she said, “don’t get cute”

so i forced my hands in my pockets
and felt with my thumbs
and gallantly handed her
my very last piece of gum

she threw me outside, i stood in the dirt
where ev’ryone walked
and after finding i’d forgotten my shirt
i went back and knocked

i waited in the hallway, she went to get it
and i tried to make sense
out of that picture of you in your wheelchair
that leaned up against

her jamaican rum, and when she did come
i asked her for some, she said, “no, dear”
i said, “your words aren’t clear
you’d better spit out your gum”

she screamed till her face got so red
then she fell on the floor
and i covered her up and then
thought i’d go look through her drawer

and when i was through
i filled up my shoe
and brought it to you
and you, you took me in

you loved me then, you didn’t waste time
and i, i never took much
i never asked for your crutch
now don’t ask for mine
