Uh, I wish we could just pretend to be
Like we always were before as happy as the Kennedys
No one told Jackie about Marilyn's tendencies
Ignorance is bliss when you're married half a century
I've been sitting on the charts like a beach chair
My last album spent 52 weeks there
Almost finished with the second, you should be scared
Storms coming you should go inside and prepare
No shortcuts there ain't no cheats there
I brought the whole city out like a street fair, yeah
If I had looked and ain’t found what I have found in me
I mean inside, would they love me? Never looked down on me?
They say, 'You know, if you loved her well then you would have stayed
You could have made a perfect pair that people wouldn't trade'
Trade for nothing, I did though, I had to chase it
Face it, I wasn’t born to live a life basic
