All the things about you that I once found so endearing | Don't you know their charm is not so slowly disappearing | On the outside staring in | I used to laugh along but the joke wore thin | This charade! | X marks the spot but all the names have been altered | The tour guide didn't write her lines but she never falters | Paint it black, now paint it white | It don't matter either way just keep the dirt out of sight | Nothing worth having needs a hard sell | Success is spite, love kiss and tell | Mistaking pity for affection | Driftwood crumbling in your hands
