Honest Wage

When you called, it was loud; I got angry.
I was everything but sober.
I said things that were ruthless, and I meant 'em,
But you told me to come over.

You say he's in town, and you're crying,
And you're throwing him one hell of a party.
So I hang up and start shaking, thinking
You never threw one for me.

I wish it was easier to kiss you on the mouth,
Like it is to work hard and earn an honest wage.
But you're not always fair to me, like I wish you would be...
He's the one who left home; I'm the one who stayed.

So, I drove when I shouldn't (But I'll make it; I'm feeling alright),
You walk out, (I'm a mess), you look perfect...
I figured you might...

Next thing I know, I'm exploding,
And everything feels awful and wrong.
And he's there, right beside you,
But the music inside is our song.

I wish it was easier to kiss you on the mouth,
Like it is to work hard and earn an honest wage.
But you're not always fair to me, no, like I wish you would be...
He's the one who left home; I'm the one who stayed. (x5)

I just get so angry when
You say you love him so,
I wanna be more like him;
I wanna know there's hope.
