Lyrics


In Sympathy

They're almost falling over you

Why don't they call a truce

Whatever they are trying to do

It's of little use


They're drowning you in compliments

Trying to furnish proof

And though they speak with eloquence

There is little truth


You're bright, you're strong

You know your right from wrong

At least to some degree

You're wise, you're tough

You've heard their lies enough

You smile in sympathy


I'm watching your serenity

The way your soul transcends

Their tedious obscenities

Your patience never ends


And as the night begins to fade

You're heading for the door

Followed by a sad parade

You're on your own once more


You're bright, you're strong

You know your right from wrong

At least to some degree

You're wise, you're tough

You've heard their lies enough

You smile in sympathy
