Lovers Need Lawyers

This song is by The Good Life and appears on the EP Lovers Need Lawyers (2004) and on the album Album of the Year (2004).

I swear to speak the whole truth, nothing but the truth - oh, so help me God, I wasn't cheating on you. Yeah I've got a spotty record, but I've been renewed. If you can't believe me - then what's to believe? Once you lose the trust you lose sincerity. I'm sick and tired of acting sincere to your accusing eyes and ears.

Oh, lovers need lawyers; all that I'm screaming's being held against me. well, You're judge and jury, so hang me or take me for all I am worth - better or worse.

Yeah, I was drinking. Yeah, she was drinking too, and, yeah, we made a connection - we came from the same neighborhood. But, surely you can't charge me for that, that's merely fact -merely coincidence. So, there we were, outlasting the last call. We took a cab to Iowa for more alcohol.

Yeah, we crossed the river alone; I also went home alone.

Oh lovers need lawyers. We're talking in circles, but missing the meaning of the reason we're fighting: you just want to make the best me that you can. All I am - take me for all I am worth. Take me for all I am.

I could never take another's hand... it's to you I'm condemned.
