      Townes Van Zandt - Why She's Acting This Way Música y Letra

      Like silent she stands 
      Like laughter she falls 
      From a castle of sand 
      Like a memory she crawls 
      And the mockingbirds grieve 
      'cause they can't make her cry 
      They'll soon start to believe 
      That the lady has died 
      What it all goes to show 
      It ain't my job to say 
      For who am I to know 
      Why she's actin' this way 
      Once again turn away 
      If you're sure that it's done 
      Tell your prophets to pray 
      Tell your bandits to run 
      Take your eyelids of stone 
      They won't do you no harm 
      Take your cross made of bones 
      Take your your fly-paper arms 
      And when everything's placed 
      In your coffin and go 
      Through a scarf 'round your face 
      'cause the subway gets cold 
      Pack up your sunflower smile 
      And your bandana blues 
      Take your worthless denials 
      They're all you've got left to lose 
      Take your tinkerbell lies 
      And your weary desires 
      Take the tears in your eyes 
      Take your cup full of fire 
      Give your lover a call 
      If your legs start to fail 
      And he'll come break your fall 
      With a bed full of nails 
      No need to glance back again 
      There ain't nothin' to see 
      Just this drunken old man 
      And this woman and me 
      And you've made it quite plain 
      That we're just wastin' time 
      And you say that it seems strange 
      That I'm staying behind 
      But you don't worry 'bout me 
      I can make it alone 
      'cause I got no place to be 
      And I ain't far from home
