​You Told Me

This song is by Stories and appears on the album Stories (1972).

You told me I would not have to cry
But why then are there tears in my eyes
I'd like to pretend that it's all right
But you think I'm acting out a lie

Where in the world do you think you're going
Who in the world do you hope to meet
Wouldn't it be nice just to sit back
Softly talking spending time with me

We're playing, playing with our lives
You don't seem, seem to realize
You taught me that you could make me laugh
You owe me, you owe me more than that

Picture yourself without a conscience
Project a thought you'd like to see
Let yourself melt into the darkness
Bring yourself down
Come away with me

There is a place where two can't be
One shady leg for two maybe

You
You told me you told me not to cry
But why then are there tears in my eye
Now you think I'm living out a lie

Where in the world do you think you're going
Who in the world do you hope to meet
Wouldn't it be nice just to sit back
Softly talking spending time with me
Whoo
