THE FACTS ABOUT JIMMY
Shawn Colvin


Jimmy is married and he lives down south


His wife lives somewhere colder


He sees another woman in a badlands town


And she cries upon his shoulder


Jimmy thinks that he's a helpless man


He thinks about love in a vacuum


And he won't remember that talk you had


When you were walking into the bedroom




He'll say I don't know why we met


The simple truth is always the best


C'est la vie what's done is done


And there's somebody for everyone




Jimmy has debts and Jimmy has ties


That he can't get out from under


If you look far enough into his eyes


It'll rock you just like thunder




Jimmy broke locks and Jimmy broke bolts


Just to get himself out from under


When you feel like you're lying in a prison cell


It'll kind of make you wonder




He'll say it's destiny we met


The simple truth is always the best


Don't you see what's done is done


And there's somebody for everyone




I used to get drunk to get my spark


And it used to work just fine


It made me wretched but it gave me heart


I miss Jimmy like I miss my wine




Jimmy as if you didn't know by now


Let me tell you a thing or two


Everybody might have someone


But everyone falls in love with you...




He'll say you get just what you get


The simple truth is always the best


Don't you see what's done is done?


And there's somebody for everyone
