Elizabeth The Great

January 9, 2013 4:03 PM

You're turning into someone else.

you never let me call you Betty no more
you're someone different when you walk outside that door
I kinda think I liked you better before
you tried to be somebody else

you roll your eyes at everything that I say
pretend you didn't used to talk the same way
it's like you're phonier with every day
you're turning into someone else

this was a temporary state
when I decided I should wait
guess I'm a little bit too late
now you're Elizabeth The Great

it would have gotten even worse if I'd stayed
now you can be with all those friends you think you've made
if there were someway I could make it a trade
I'd pick the one you were before

this was a temporary state
when I decided I should wait
guess I'm a little bit too late
now you're Elizabeth The Great

when you decide who to be
I'll make a point to come see you
and tell you all of the reasons you should be more like me

It's amusing how I have listened to your voice enough that I can recognize your voice.

I like your voice.

For some reason this reminds me of Cake. Hope that's not terribly insulting to you. Harmonies sound great, as usual.
