Lyrics

I wanted someone to love me | while I was still pretty | so he would remember when I got old | you said you wanted | to watch me go gray | when you left only gray was the snow | you took my heart and my favorite ring | promised the future promised me everything | you used to want me so much | I wanted somebody’s toothbrush | on the sink next to mine | I left yours there a long time | but I wanted someone to love me | when it don’t come easy | as constant as breathing and just as involuntary | you broke my heart and my favorite dream | and now I can’t promise anyone anything | I used to want so much | now I don’t | I don’t know what I want | I don’t know what I want | so what I want now | it’s hard to tell | I ain’t ever been graceful | but I recover well
