lyrics

Late in the evening
When I get tired of dreaming
I wake up again
And I roll up my sweet leaf and wonder
How you pulled me back in

Should’ve known by the distance
And the growing persistence
Of no loving after ten
That you’d found a new lover
A real kiss and hugger
Someone new for you to break and to bend

No surprise, you’re sitting pretty
No surprise, I’m back here again
No surprise, I’d love you blindly
But we know blind love is a breaker of men
And now that I know what kind of deceit
Hides behind baby blue eyes
I have shaken my head
Gotten back up again, no surprise

I hear he’s tall dark and handsome
A real handful of man with some quiet kind eyes
And he’s probably blind to your black widow mind
All the secrets and lies

I hope when you make love
You remember to take off
My photo from next to the bed
And good luck to you in all that you do
Hope you don’t choke while getting ahead

No surprise, you’re sitting pretty
No surprise, I’m back here again
No surprise, I’d love you blindly
We know love is a breaker of men
And now that I know what kind of deceit
Hides behind baby blue eyes
I have shaken my head
Gotten back up again, no surprise

I hope you’ll remember
My loving so tender
When your world is wearing thin
And honey, don’t be surprised
Yeah, don’t be surprised
Don’t be surprised when the secrets come and pull you back in

No surprise, you’re sitting pretty
No surprise, I’m back here again
No surprise, I would love you blindly
Now we know love is a breaker of men
And now that I know what kind of deceit
Hides behind your baby blue eyes
I’ll have shaken my head
Gotten back up again, no surprise
I’ll have shaken my head
Gotten back up again, no surprise
