To count the walls

Chanson : Johnny and Mary, Robert Palmer



Paroles


Johnny's always running around Trying to find certainty He needs all the world to confirm That he ain't lonely Mary counts the walls Knows he tires easily


Johnny thinks the world would be right If it could buy the truth from him Mary says he changes his mind More than a woman But she made her bed Even when the chance was slim


Johnny says he's willing to learn When he decides he's a fool Johnny says he'll live anywhere When he earns time to Mary combs her hair Says she should be used to it


Mary always hedges her bets She never knows what to think She says that he still acts like he's being discovered Scared that he'll be caught without a second thought Running around


Johnny feels he's wasting his breath Trying to talk sense to her Mary says he's lacking a real sense of proportion So she combs her hair Knows he tires easily


Johnny's always running around Trying to find certainty He needs all the world to confirm That he ain't lonely Mary counts the walls Says she should be used to it


Johnny's always running around Running around
