The Only Thing I Know lyrics

The Mountain Goats

  Printer Friendly Version


when you came back from trenton,
all the sparkle was gone.
and you stood in the shadow
and the curtains were drawn

and i know you're lying.
and you know you're lying too.
that is just about the only thing i know about you.

when you pocketed your eyeshadow
and you picked up the phone,
stepped out on the balcony
and drank in the drone.

and i know you're leaving.
and you know you're leaving too.
that is just about the only thing i know about you.

when you stop on the sidewalk
and you looked up above you,
warm wet air came down to shelter me.
how much do i love you?

well you know you're dying.
and i know you're dying too.
that is just about the only thing i know about you
