Bad Man

from by Quiet Desperation

lyrics

We've been good friends for the longest time
Got the courage to say I want you to be mine
But that man you're with won't treat you right
Oh, I just can't stand it, gotta make you see the light

But you don't even smile when I tell you I love you
You don't even care that he's just gonna shove you
You just wanna be where there's fun all around you
And I know you're gonna cry 'til that bad man's taken away

What you see in him, I'll never know
Breaks my heart to see him use you for show
Once he tires of you, he'll let you down
Oh, but you don't need him, can't you see he's just a clown?

Still, you don't even smile when I tell you I love you
You don't even care that he's just gonna shove you
You just wanna be where there's fun all around you
And I know you're gonna cry 'til that bad man's taken away

Sure enough, that man has now moved on
Hard to see you like this, you need someone strong
I'll take your hand and dry your tears
Oh, believe me when I say that with me, there's nothing to fear

Now, I see you smile when I tell you I love you
You already know that I'm not gonna shove you
It's easy to be where my arms are around you
And you're never gonna cry now that bad man's taken away
