Lyrics

Even Trade

Call it an even trade
This person you see here today
Is not who she used to be
Gone is the mystery
Call it an even trade

You see me when I wake up
Before coffee, no makeup
No veil for this bride
No time for a good cry
Call it an even trade

I want to want nothing more
I want to see who you saw
It' my tragic flaw
To weigh the scales in this way

Could be this time of year
Wine on my breath, that hangs in the air
I was going somewhere
Now I'm always right there
Call it an even trade
Call it an even trade
[The bed's never empty
And it's already made]
Call it an even trade
