Bittersweet

Everything But the GirlBuy this song

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
