Book Lovers

This song is by John Hiatt and appears on the album Riding With The King (1983).

I heard the news from every fool in town
You got somebody new
And I never hurt so bad
The strangest fiction just came true

Crowds will gather for a twisted wreck
Well, all right stare at me
Its just another story of love
Thats turned into tragedy

What am I supposed to do
You want a toast from the man who's lost
The man who's doublecrossed
From cover to cover
Baby you and me were just book lovers

Since you turned away I turned the page on my happiness
Once upon a time you were mine, now I must confess
I cant bear to read the rest

It could have been a happy ending girl
Goodness knows, I tried
But I see so clearly now
Even through these tears Ive cried

You wanted love to be a fairly tale
With a sleeping beauty scene
Now another prince has come
And kissed you out of all your dreams
