Artist: Ani DiFranco
Albums: Knuckle Down (2005)


you cried and you cried and you cried wolf
so it took me a minute to understand
that you really were hurt bad
that day you deeply cut your hand

and then that look that you gave me
sent me rushing through guilt's door
I'd already started to feel callous
like I really should care more

and it was my work that kept me upright
so you called it a crutch
while I drifted off into dreams
of such and such

and by the time we'd come full circle
we knew exactly what to do
just keep looking at the triangle
instead of what it's pointing to

but you can't will yourself happy
you can't will your cunt wet
you can't keep standing at the station
pretending you're being met
you can't wear a sign
that says "yours"
when that ain't
what you get

it flows and it flows away from me
my love is a stream
and your love is a vaudville show
so charming and obscene
and we both had our moments
we both had our fun
and then I hated to prove them all right
all those that said I'd run

but you can't will yourself happy
you can't will your cunt wet
you can't keep standing at the station
pretending you're being met
you can't keep wearing a sign
that says "yours"
when that ain't
what you get
