lyrics

You never wake up alone,
Always hand out a smile,
To those who ask,
And just set the records straight.
You never pick up the phone,
Always turn up late
And contemplate,
About the Christ in every man,
And then pretend,
You never came,
So they could say:
It takes a special kind of friend to reach the end,
But please understand,
Don't grab my hand,
And never trust the holy gracious medley band.

You never stay in one place,
Always up on your toes,
All in good faith,
But then everybody knows,
You never meant to stay,
And you're just the same.
Said you'll change,
But once again it is six-o-five Am,
So storm the gate,
And please refrain,
From taking the girl of another man,
Unless you can,
Keep telling lies,
And blame sweet Jane,
or was it Bill,
I was never good with names.
But please understand,
Don't grab my hand,
And never trust the holy gracious medley band,
Never trust the holy gracious medley…
