​Political

This song is by Spirit Of The West and appears on the album Labour Day (1988).

I was tired of being put right down by myself for not being what you thought you had found
Pulled hard in two directions by a desire to learn and my old affections
I tried to share my world with you
You could not seem to tolerate
The people I had grown to love
They shrank under your scrutiny, became the ones you'd hate

Everything,
Everything with you and me had to be so political
Everything,
Everything with you and me had to be so political

I was feeling under-whelmed about hangin' round with you and feeling over cautious,
Every word, every look, every little sign, every little phrase put me deeper in your dog house
You let me out to run across your world,
I ran into a wall, you told me I built it
Then you'd reel me in,
Reel me out,
Pick me up,
Push me out again,
And then repeat it.
Why did...
Everything,
Everything with you and me have to be so political
Everything,
Everything with you and me have to be so political

Everything, everything with you and me was...

Too busy tripping on my tongue to try and stand my ground,
And I can still see myself crying in your lap asking you
"Are you happy with the man you have found?"

I'm grateful for what you did for me,
I can see things now I never would have seen
And today I thought of what could have been,
But could never be for you and me,
Cause
Everything,
Everything with you and me had to be so political
Everything,
Everything with you and me had to be so political
