All These Love Songs that I've been writing
All these poems too
Though they've helped make me what I've become
None of them was true

Sit tight watch and I’ll assemble one
Like a mockingbird mocks the other song
In real life I played it safe at home
In real life I married young, I married young

All these songs of unrequited love
Effervescent youth
All that heartbreak and the making up
Was simply not the truth

All this talk about getting it on
I've got the same old chops I've been working on
In my mind I’ve got a spurious song
I never thought to crank out an honest one not even one

I could be in your eyes king of the swingers
I never relayed to you a lonely tone
In reality a ring on the finger
And a quiet night old folks at home

There were never any lonely blues
I didn’t ever have to fill anyone else’s shoes
There was never a jet plane never a train
I never heard a lonely whistle blow that caused me pain
I go to work every day and then whatever they pay me
Goes in an account and it gets saved away
If you ever needed me I won’t be out on the road I’ll be
Wherever it is a pair of albatrosses go

All These Love Songs that I've been writing
All these words I cry
Inside out I give them what they want
But what they want is lies

All these pet names were uninvited
Who said she can’t find a better man

All this smoke that got them so excited
All my smokescreen is second hand

All these love songs that I’ve been writing
All these love songs that I’ve been writing
