Lyrics - Don't Do Those Things You Do

[ Return to Scorpio and Me Lyrics ]

DON'T DO THOSE THINGS YOU DO

Got the letter you had to send
Our perfect love just had to end
'Though, I expected more than a trip or two
Something you took I left behind
Thank God, it's already escaped my mind
I'm gonna ask you, no!
Don't do those things you do

Remember loving in our bed
Took a trip, but, found instead
You loving someone I never thought you knew
Left a message on your door
"You just won't do that anymore!"
I'm gonna ask you, no!
Don't do those things you do

You make your statements about what you need
You'd better worry since you can't read
The sign that is guiding my spirit through
Above the gates to check the scrawls
Keeping clear of phony calls
I'm gonna ask you, no!
Don't do those things you do

In our library the words I found
Told me things I could not down
Like so much you told me that should not be true
Yet, everything that I read
Leaves some kinda mark on me
I'm gonna ask you, no!
Don't do those things you do

A touch of sorrow in my voice
I'm just human, I have no choice
I hate this knowledge about the life that we knew
Along the river I take the steps
From your jaws, I can't forget
I'm gonna ask you, no!
Don't do those things you do

Twisted icons in your hall
Tortured figures, but that ain't all
There's something hidden about the ones you flew
In the mud I catch the light
You can't catch it every night
I'm gonna ask you, no!
Don't do those things you do

Forest mountain catch the rain
Let it drift and leave no stain
Let it rise above the springtime that I knew
I might fall every time I stand
It ain't hard to know I can
I'm gonna ask you, no!
Don't do those things you do

So, now, I'm honest, that's quite a plum
To save for supper and drink with rum
I sit back and watch all the smoke leave the zoo
Nothing's hidden behind my face
But doncha say it's quick to trace
I'm gonna ask you, no!
Don't do those things you do
