NEW THING NOW
Shawn Colvin


This is your new thing now


Naked as a rose


Everything exposed


But not quite


This is your new thing now


Cards out on the table


A genius with no label


But not quite not quite


God I swear it's good to be back home


Waiting for the newest Rolling Stone


All the other girls are still at war


The best and worst of 1994


Sometimes I see the half and not the whole


Sometimes I see the face and not the soul


Sometimes I think this place has no part


For anyone who ever had a heart




This is your new thing now


And it looks so good in print


Just a poet and her pimps


But not quite


This is your new thing now


A prom dress and a sneer


The woman of the year


But not quite, not quite




Gee, it's good to see a dream come true


People smile and bless all over you


Mixing up those latest junkie-isms


With all the pretty terms of religion


And don't you love the leader of the band


Equal parts Butthead and Peter Pan


All the other kids are sad again


A legend's not a legend 'til it ends




This is your new thing now


And it makes the whole world spin


It's as least as old as sin


But not quite


This is your new thing now


And now you're turning grinning


But maybe no one's listening


And you might lose it all my darling, yes you might




This is your new thing now


And it feels so good to doubt you


I could almost live without you


But not quite
