Twisting My Words (Carson Lori)

Well, aren't we all grown up We were only children but who knew it then? Lovers before we knew anything more For each lesson in tenderness learned on the floor There was one about twisting my words to console you One about hiding the black and blue And one about leaving the back door open For the endlessly running away that I do The rain took me by surprise Though I'd heard a wild storm was coming that night I've learned to ignore these predictions alright Well partly it's stubbornness some of it's spite But mostly it's twisting my words to console you Mostly it's hiding the black and blue And always it's leaving the back door open For the endlessly running away that I do Now you think you're here to stay it's like that joke How can you miss me if you won't go away Well darling I may still surprise you one day For each sincere good morning I've managed to say There's been one about twisting my words to console you One about hiding the black and blue And one about leaving the back door open For the endlessly running away that I do from you For the endlessly running away that I do
