lyrics

lyrics by Ed Schieblin

Some men could make her fly through skies filled with storms
Some men could make her cry, get her so high
When they let go she wished she'd never been born
They could twist her and turn her
Love her and burn her
And I couldn't do much to help
But I could always make her laugh
But I could always make her laugh

I could never quite see what she saw in that scene
Couldn't get her to trust me that there was more to life
Than rich champagne and cheap misery
She wanted heaven and hell
To scream and to yell
And i couldn't do much to help
But I always could make her laugh
But I always could make her laugh

Bridge
We would sit in the park
A court jester and Joan of Arc
Talk about how we'd live and die
We'd take a sip, an awkward kiss
Then we'd laugh until we cried
Then we'd laugh until we cried

It's been a long, long while, a million miles since those days
They say she's lost at sea on Avenue B
With a man who can sing but has nothing to say
He can fool and cheat her
Drown her and beat her
And I can't do anything to help
But I wish I could still make her laugh
But I wish I could still make her laugh
