Compliments In Lavender
2008 Bill Gaunce

She gets compliments in lavender
Though I like her best in brown
But she hardly wears it
Only when I come around

It's hard to imagine
What she's lost that can't be found
But I see her looking for it
Only when I come around

I'm not hers, she's not mine
Like some dime store valentine
That fades in the sunlight
Forgotten over time
And I think that if she tried
He would come around to see
But my presence pulls her back
I guess it's time for me to leave

And when she cries I can feel it
Though too far to hear the sound
Her cryin' burns my soul
Even though I'm not around

I'm not mean I'm not cold hearted
But it hurts to see the end
What makes us drink the poison
That will slowly do us in?

I'm not hers, she's not mine
Like some dime store valentine
That fades on the window sill
Forgotten over time
Though I love her like no other
It's lost & nowhere bound
I lover her but I'm leaving
No more to come around

Her whisper cuts the darkness
Of the night & when she's down
It shatters through the silence
But I can't help I'm not around

I'm not hers, she's not mine
Like some dime store valentine
That fades in the sunlight
Forgotten over time
And I think that if she tried
He would come around to see
But my presence pulls her back
I guess it's time for me to leave
