ABANDONED
Lucinda Williams


All of my love has been taken for granted

I've been fair but you've been underhanded

I've been disgraced but I can't bear to face it

'Cause the truth is my heart has been abandoned

I was hoping for heaven but baby I ain't blind

This ain't the first time I've been undermined

Sad eyes and crooked smile that I remember well

Now it looks like all I got is time to kill


You can't fool me, I see it in your eyes

You can't fool me, I see it in your eyes

Everything I thought we had has all been cast aside


You can't fool me, I see it in your eyes


These boots are the same boots I was wearin' then

And this beer I'm drinkin' is still the same old brand

But these blues are something new, they came around when I lost you

And it looks like I got stuck with an empty hand


You can't fool me, I see it in your eyes

You can't fool me, I see it in your eyes

Everything I thought we had has all been cast aside

You can't fool me, I see it in your eyes


You can't fool me, I see it in your eyes
