  1. Don't Meddle

From the album Small Mistakes

Lyrics

well her voice carries water
but it won’t carry weight
he’s known he couldn’t stand her
since the second date
but he’s known to get lonely
and the hours they do get late

he imagines she’s gorgeous
imagines she cheats
he’d rather wake up with a headache
than a handful of sheets

now they share the rent
and the wall to wall carpet
and they share admission
at the la brea tar pits
and they share opinions
on the passerby and their outfits

she imagines he’s handsome
imagines he cheats
she’d rather wake up with a headache
than a handful of sheets

oh pray don’t meddle
when i say i’ll settle
oh pray don’t meddle oh pray
you know damn well what i go through
it’s unpleasant and it’s slow too
so pray don’t meddle oh pray

with a purpose and a pervert
she fell into bed
she never rode the bus this late
with her eyes this red
didn’t mean the things she did
well i think she mean the things she said

she knows that she’s gorgeous
he knows that she cheats
they’d rather wake up with regrets
than handfuls of sheets

and they’re the people who wait for the calls that don’t come
and the songs you hate they’re the ones that you hum the most

oh pray don’t meddle
when i say i’ll settle
oh pray don’t meddle oh pray
you know damn well what i go through
it’s unpleasant and it’s slow too
so pray don’t meddle oh pray

oh pray don’t meddle
when i say i’ll settle
oh pray don’t meddle oh pray
you know damn well what i go through
it’s unpleasant and it’s slow too
so pray don’t meddle oh pray

oh pray don’t meddle oh pray
