Lyrics

SAME WRONG THING
by Al Rose © 2016 Wheel See Music (ASCAP)

I open up my mouth / And I can hardly breathe
It’s a habit I’ve got / Just like the great dark sleep
I gather up the quilt / But it’s torn at the seams
I always open my mouth and say the same wrong thing

I’m just repeating myself / Like a dependable thief
I’m such a tired guest / Can’t find the time to leave
I’ll meet you under the bus / I threw us under the fleet
I always open my mouth and say the same wrong thing

I never get it right / I haven’t learned a thing
I turn away and run / It’s just the coward in me
You just gotta laugh / I’m just as dumb as I seem
I always open my mouth and say the same wrong thing

Same wrong thing / Same thing wrong
Same wrong mouth / Same wrong tongue

I think I broke your heart / Like it was mine to break
But the cruel truth is just my bitter shame
Now I’m just a ghost / I fly with bitter wings
I always open my mouth and say the same wrong thing

I open up my eyes / I can hardly see
The indisputable lies in the deep blue sea
I tried to get it right / But all you got is grief
I always open my mouth and say the same wrong thing

I’m a permanent con / Selling permanent bliss
Hiding my permanent mouth beneath a permanent kiss
I try to play a part / But all you get is me
I always open my mouth and say the same wrong thing

Same wrong thing / Same thing wrong
Same wrong mouth / Same wrong tongue
Same wrong bell / Same wrong rung
Same wrong tune / Same wrong song
