Shakedown


Shakedown -------- Copyright © 2003 Christine Anderson

I canít stay, I throw the rest of my cards away
Head for the door to get out of this place
I dry the ink and put the papers away
But when I head for the door the signís still the same
I canít stay, I have a whole nother part to play
A brand new reason to walk out the door again
Another chance to put my trophies away
But when I open the case Iím staring back at your face

Chorus:
And Iím losing my mind on you
Wasting my time on you
Falling behind for you
Itís a shakedown
Keep on abusing me
Go on misusing me
Unto infinity
Hereís the breakdown

I canít stay, I feel it slipping away
Iíve got to head out the door like I promised myself before
But I step outside and I realize
That thereís no one to turn to and nowhere to hide
I think Iíve cracked, the cards are still stacked
No matter where I throw them they keep coming back to me
You count my hands? Are you not playing fair?
Hell I donít know, and I donít care

Chorus:
Iím losing my mind on you
Wasting my time on you
Falling behind for you
Itís a shakedown
Keep on abusing me
Go on misusing me
Unto infinity
Hereís the breakdown

[Piano breakdown]

I canít stay, I canít stayÖ
