    Lyrics

    Don't talk to me in that familiar way
    When the keys are in my hand
    Don't say that everything is here to stay
    And I must try to understand

    When I'm trying not to look into your eyes
    Trying not to listen to your lies
    Trying just to keep hold of myself
    Oh, but it's hard when you leave me on the shelf

    You say, I set a path for you to follow
    And I've already given in
    But I only meant for you to taste, not swallow
    Where I end is where you must begin

    And try not to look into their eyes
    Try not to listen to their lies
    Try just to keep hold of yourself
    Oh, I know it's hard when they leave you on their shelf

    She's such a sweet girl free of the taints of this world
    Think that's a compliment, don't be so full of sentiment
    Why you worship sweetness? What virtue's there in weakness?
    Being pushed about is nothing much to shout about, I know

    So try not to look into their eyes
    Try not to listen to their lies
    Try just to keep hold of yourself
    Oh, I know it's hard when they leave you on their shelf
