Suzanne Buirgy: Music

Except For Me

(Suzanne Buirgy)
Trash on the corner swept up by the breeze
Twirling and whirling in a dance no one sees
Except for me
Except for me

My eyes are open staring straight ahead
For years you were quiet
Everyone thought you were dead
Except for me
Except for me

I miss your gentle nature and your southern way
Your wicked sense of humor
Oh the things you'd say
We raised our voices like angels
We raised our glasses too
I figured it was just a phase that we were going through

Car in the driveway your lips on my curls
Words slurring softly
You never loved a girl
Except for me
Except for me

I met your family they were so proud
No one dared speak their feelings out loud
Except for me
Except for me

I miss your gentle nature and your southern way
Your wicked sense of humor
Oh the things you'd say
We woke your sister up at night fumbling for the key
I guess everybody wises up eventually

Late at night the telephone rings
You moved to the desert
You took all your things
Except for me
Except for me

Love can be an anchor
Love can be a chain
No one expected to see you again
Except for me
Except for me

I miss your gentle nature and your southern way
Your wicked sense of humor
Oh the things you'd say
Should have known that someday you would choose the devil over me
Yeah everybody wises up eventually
Except for me

I miss your gentle nature and your southern way
Your wicked sense of humor
Oh the things you'd say
Should have known that someday you would choose the devil over me
Seems like everybody knew how it would turn out to be
Except for me
Except for me
Except for me
Except for me
