Naturally 03:47
You and I are breaking up After all of the great things we’ve done. You and I are giving up After all of the sweet things we felt And I don’t want to spend these years heartbroken, I don’t want to feel hurt any more I know you don’t love me, so why don’t you leave? Things will get better naturally I said I know you don’t love me, go get up and leave Things will get better naturally It’s past the point that we can do anything To save what’s been, what’s been missing lately And how can I ever get through to you When I’ve given you everything? I’ve done all that I can do It’s so hard to go home without you When you’re holding me in your arms You say you still need me and I may as well stay Man, you’re going to hurt me either way I know you don’t love me, I know when you leave Things will get better naturally, Naturally, Baby don’t keep me around just to slow it down Baby let me get this out, you can do without me now I don’t understand why you don’t want me back, so you’ve got to let go Cause I’m going, it’s late, it’s cold, and I know I know you don’t love me, don’t play pretend Don’t try to tell me this isn’t the end I know you don’t love me, I know when you leave Things will get better naturally Things will get better naturally Oh, things will get better naturally

Jones 05:08
Jones knows everything about me, I swear her eyes can read my mind She doesn’t tell, but I can tell she knows me And she has the key to something that I could use And I, I don’t know myself all that well So I worry for myself and What she thinks of me would mean quite an awful lot to me Tell me who I am cause right now I’m just confused Some people think badly about me I wish she would tell me what she sees Would you tell me that it’s so, Would you tell me that it’s so and I am not the one you want Would you tell me that it’s over and I promise I will stop, I’ll let go of this now Been so caught up in criticizing myself, Measuring against everyone else that now I’m Immersed in doubt and standing frozen at center stage, Looking out for someone to validate my hope Some people think badly about me But if that will deny me this one thing Would you tell me that it’s so, Would you tell me that it’s so and I am not the one you want Would you tell me that it’s over and I promise I will stop, I’ll give up on this now Do I set my sights just a little too high when I look at you? Is this a mirror on the wall that I’m talking to? If Jones has said to me, You’re getting older now, it’s time to forget that dream I set my sights just a little too high when I look at you And it’s a mirror the wall that I’m talking to If Jones has said to me, You’re getting older now, it’s time to forget that dream, Forget that dream Forget that dream

The people in love line the streets like poetry and it’s clear to me that they’re under a drug, without a care, not a worry Mm, I’m always the one out of place, got that single girl pace, my constant hurry The people in love live in a different reality Mm, where everything is easy, everything is peachy for them, Rosy red and gold No one gonna hurt you, no one gonna leave you when you need them But I’m not one of them No I don’t fit in with those people in love! The only kind with the time to enjoy a sunny afternoon, Showing it off so well without even trying to Mm, and inviting me out to parties with dates, weekend vacations and evenings out to sea The people in love are trying their hardest to get to me Yeah they say everything is easy, everything is peachy for them, Rosy red and gold No one gonna hurt you, no one gonna leave you when you need them But I don’t believe them The people in love be showin’ it off The people in love be showin’ it better than you If you were in love, I would expect you to take me out on a sunny afternoon I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe you would The people in love line the streets like poetry The people in love are trying their hardest to get to me But I’m not one of them
