A Martyr For My Love For You

White Stripes

Icky Thump


She was 16 and 6 feet tall with a crowd of teenagers comin' out of the zoo
She stumbled, start to slip and fall, teeter tottered on the top of patent leather shoes
I happened to catch her and said, Maybe these ruby shoes are a little cumbersome for you maybe for you.. now..

But not as shaky as I must have seemed, talkin' junk to forgive a little teenage dream
And on the phone I could not compete but dumb luck fake confidence was getting weak
And for a sec I thought I sounded sweet, but sure enough in a gruff faint voice I heard myself speak

I could stay awhile, but sooner or later I'll break your smile
And I can tell a joke, but one of these days I'm bound to choke
And we could share a kiss
But I feel like I can't go through with this
And I bet we could build a home
But I know the right thing for me to do
Is to leave you alone.. leave you alone now..

I'm beginning to like you, so you probably won't get what I'm going to do
I'm walkin' away from you, it probably don't make much sense to you
But I'm tryin' to save you, from all of the things that I'll probably say I'll do I probably do

I could stay awhile, but sooner or later I'll break your smile
And I can tell a joke, but one of these days I'm bound to choke
And we might share a kiss
But I feel like I can't go through with this
And I bet we could build a home
But I know the right thing for me to do
Is to leave you alone leave you alone now

You'll probably call me a fool and say I'm doing exactly what a coward would do
And I'm beginning to like you, it's a shame what a lame way to live, but what can I do?
I hope you appreciate what I do
I'm a martyr for my love for you


-Philippe
