​Ugly Man

This song is by Freakwater and appears on the album Old Paint (1995).

I always thought that I knew what I wanted
What I wanted was a family man
We'd lie in bed at night together makin' all kinds of plans
I always thought that I knew what he was thinkin'
And I knew I didn't understand
But I knew to lay low when he came home drinkin'
'Cause I knew him like the back of his hand

Don't you believe everything you're told
Everything that glitters can't be gold
Every little diamond doesn't shine like crazy sometimes

You can smell the smoke long after the fire is gone
Every star in the sky's not the one that you can put your wish on
Every darkest hour can't be the one that's just before the dawn
Sometimes I'm just amazed how the night just drags on and on

I knew it was time to leave and I knew it some time ago
And I knew the best part of leavin' was walking out the doo
R I was standin' with my hand on the door and I was so tired it got sore
And I turned around when I heard the sound like a shadow cross the floor

Don't you believe everything you're told
Everything that glitters can't be gold
Every little diamond doesn't shine like crazy sometimes

You can smell the smoke long after the fire is gone
Every star in the sky's not the one that you can put your wish on
Every darkest hour can't be the one that's just before the dawn
Sometimes I'm just amazed how the night just drags on and on
