David Singer - A Mercenary Love Song

from Unreleased No. 2 by Various Artists

/

lyrics

you stick around. you have your reservations. she feels you out. you strain for conversation you reach for what to say. all you're left with. are cliches and hand-me-downs. you fight to keep your distance. you put up some resistance. when you feel it coming down a mercenary love song. played by a heavy metal band. you give up and you settle. and she wakes you and you drown. a man woke up in someone else's bed. he put on someone else's clothes. and walked around pretending he was dead. he heard a little voice repeating in his head. today is just the next day. of your long and boring life. a woman waits until her nails are dry. she puts a pot of coffee on. and spends the morning staring at the sky. she knows she loves him but she can't remember why. she made him her accomplice in this long and boring life. you stick around. you act as if it suits you. she waits you out. a marriage you commute to. you reach for what to say. some emotion to display. but now you're out
