Lyrics

MEAN TO ME

C Am Dm G
C Am Dm G

C Am
Just when I think I should go
F G
Then you tell me to stay
C Am
Just when I've got something saved
F G F G F
You tell me to give it away
C Am
When I think I've got it all in control
F G
You drag up some hideaway sin
C Am
And then when I'm ready to quit
F G F G F
You tell me it's time to begin

C F
I don't understand you at all
D G
I don't understand you at all
E7 Am
I don't understand you at all
Cdim7 F Dm F11 G C
You're so mean to me, so mean to me

Oh, oh, oh....

I want to pig out on junk food
But you say it's time for a fast
I'm driving to sing songs for you
But you say I'm driving too fast

I want to be fruitful for you
Like a big, tall apple tree
But you say there's one thing to do
To lay down my life like a seed

Bb F Bb F Dm G F Fm
But you're drawing me, away from me and closer to you.

I'm trying so hard to be good
But you are nowhere around
But let me do one tiny sin
And you track me down
Track me down

My neighbor is doing me dirt
And I want to break all his teeth
But you won't even look at my hurt
You tell me to wash his feet
