Pitchman

lyrics

on the day we met
here’s what you said:
life is a non-stop carnival ride

but your silver tongue
could cut your own throat
leave me a freak show
on the other side

and I kick myself
cause why did I stick around this long

you ain’t nothing but a pitchman
you ain’t nothing but a talker
selling snake oil made from holy water

i ain’t saying you lied
just that I believed you
you know the two aren’t always the same

i was your fall girl
a rope net to receive you
with your sweet-talking skywalk to blame

and I kick myself
cause why did I stick around this long

you ain’t nothing but a pitchman
you ain’t nothing but a talker
selling snake oil made from holy water

and you pay your coin
and you take your chance
but you took a silver dollar for a dime romance

you ain’t nothing but a pitchman
you ain’t nothing but a talker
selling snake oil made from holy water
