Don’t Invest In Me Lyrics

don’t invest in me / unless its ghosts that make you money / like they do on your TV / could’ve sworn it was something / whenever your house creaks / turn the corner take a peak / although you thought you heard it speak / it was really nothing

I know this well / I know this all too well
I know this well / I know this all too well

and so don’t invest in me / I did the books on all returns never seen / and I won’t return when I leave / baby hold on to your currency / or anything meaning something to you currently / oh you’re something to see / but don’t invest in me

runnin’ from my senses / legs torn up from jumpin fences / all the denim the top collected / i’m hurtin now / this is my achievement / i’m only lonely when it’s convenient / no one earns that sort of treatment / nobody does

I know this well / I know this all too well
I know this well / I know this all too well

and so don’t invest in me / I did the books on all returns never seen / and I won’t return when I leave / baby hold on to your currency / or anything meaning something to you currently / oh you’re something to see / but don’t invest in me

I never know why I did you wrong
I never know why I did you wrong
I never know why I did you wrong
(I’ve read the signs)
I never know why I did you wrong
(I’m used to running them)
I never know why I did you wrong
(I know I should’nt cry)
I never know why I did you wrong
(but i don’t wanna hold it in)

I know this well / I know this all too well
I know this well / I know this all too well

and so don’t invest in me / I did the books on all returns never seen / and I won’t return when I leave / baby hold on to your currency / or anything meaning something to you currently / oh you’re something to me / oh you’re something to me / oh you’re something to me / but dont invest in me
