​Setting Yourself Up

This song is by Colin Blunstone and appears on the album Journey (1974).

Setting yourself up
Blunstone

If I were you and I sure would know
I'd pack up all my bags and go
She had me last time around
Oh man, she really puts you down.

You'll feel better when you've made the break
Do it now before it's too late
She's a mean man-eating machine
I can't understand how you haven't seen.

You're just setting yourself out to be shot down
And everybody knows it
No one's going to laugh if you walk out on her.

You're just setting yourself out to be shot down
And though you never show it
Surely you can see everybody's waiting for you to go.

You think she has given her heart
Well she takes them up and she tears them apart
It's happened to all the people too
Now would I ever lied to you?

Don't you worry, after you're gone
I'll make sure she is not alone
If you can't believe everything I say
You didn't deserve her anyway.

You're just setting yourself out to be shot down
And everybody knows it
No one's going to laugh if you walk out on her.

You're just setting yourself out to be shot down
And though you never show it
Surely you can see everybody's waiting for you to go.
