View Lyrics

You must be mistaken
It couldn’t have been
You couldn’t have seen him yesterday
He’s doing some deal up in Baltimore now
I hate it, when he’s away!

You must be mistaken
I’m sure that you are!
There’s more than one car with stickers on.
And lots of young guys wear corduroy pants.
And I’d know if he hadn’t gone

Take that look off your face (Take that look off your face)
I can see through your smile (I can see through your smile)
You would love to be right,
I bet you didn’t sleep good last night
Couldn’t wait to bring all of that bad news to my door.
Well, I’ve got news for you: I knew before.

If I’m not mistaken, it started last year.

I’m not very clear how it began
I noticed a change, but I just closed my eyes
As only a woman can.

No, I didn’t dig deep. (No, I didn’t dig deep.)
I did not want to know. (I did not want to know.)
Well, you don’t interfere when you’re scared of the things you might hear.
When he’s back, you think I will end it right there and then?
Well, my fair weather friend: you’re wrong again!

Take that look off your face (Take that look off your face)
I can see through your smile (I can see through your smile)
You would love to be right,
I bet you didn’t sleep good last night
Couldn’t wait to bring all of that bad news to my door.
Well, I’ve got news for you: I knew before.
