The White Stripes A Martyr For My Love For You Lyrics

Last updated: 09/12/2011 11:00:00 AM

She was sixteen
And six feet tall
In a crowd of teenagers
Coming out of the zoo.

She stumbled
Started to slip and fall
Teeter tottered on the top
Of patent leather shoes.

I happen to catch her and said
"maybe these ruby shoes are
A little cumbersome for you."

Maybe for you, now.

But not as shaky
As I must've seemed
Talking junk through her
Giggle little teenage dream.

And on the phone I could not compete
My dumb luck
Fake confidence
Was getting weak.

And for a sec
I thought I sounded sweet
But sure enough In a gruff voice I heard myself speak...

I could stay awhile
But sooner or later
I'll break your smile
And I can tell a joke
But one of these days
I'm bound to choke
And we could share a kiss
But I feel like I can't go
Through with this
And I bet we could build a home
But I know the right thing
For me to do
Is to leave you alone

I'm beginning to like you
So you probably won't get
What I'm going to do.

I'm walking away from you
It probably don't make
much sense to you.

But I'm trying to save you
From all of the things that
I'll probably say or do.

I'll probably do, now.

I could stay awhile
But sooner or later
I'll break your smile
And I can tell a joke
But one of these days
I'm bound to choke
And we could share a kiss
But I feel like I can't go
Through with this
And I bet we could build a home
But I know the right thing
For me to do
Is to leave you alone

You'll probably call me a fool
And say I'm doing exactly
What a coward would do.

And I'm beginning to like you
It's a shame
What a lame way to live
But what can i do?

Well I hope you appreciate
What I do...

I'm a martyr for my love for you.
