about

Note to Judges: The clicking sound on the fade-out is an unfortunate artifact - it took me quite a while to get an acceptable base take and it was over 100 degrees in my recording space. The sound, which sounds a little like a button click, is actually the roof of my recording space adjusting in the heat, I hope it won't heavily affect your enjoyment of the song.

lyrics

Well I come in the door
The kids are already gone
There’s a fabulous smell in here, I guess the dinner is on
So I loosen my tie
And I throw off my coat
You ask me if anything interesting happened today, I say, “no”
But I’m lyin’

They said they had to let me go
But I don’t know where
So I came back here and I just know I won’t be goin’ back there
You seem to sense concern
On this face of mine
So you peck me on the cheek and I tell you that everything is fine
But I’m lyin’

How’m I gonna explain it to you
They said it’s just a sign of the times
I’s not about me
That there’s nothin’ I could do
But I’m the one who brings it home at the end of the day
I don’t know what to say
So I’m lyin’

I come in and sit down
I won’t look you in the eye
And I wonder to myself if you wonder how you ever got stuck with this guy
Who can’t seem to get it right
No matter how hard he tries
You kiss me goodnight and say “sleep well” and I say I just might
But I’m lyin

How’m I gonna explain it to you
They said it’s just a sign of the times
It’s not about me
That there’s nothin’ I could do
But I’m the one who brings it home at the end of the day
Don’t know what to say
So I’m lyin’

And bein’ with you is the only thing that might make it all ok
I don’t know what to say
So I’m lyin’
