BEN HARPER lyrics : "Why Must You Always Dress in Black"

You may be a cheap date
But my therapy's expensive as hell
Then you pay a psychic healer who lets you know

Things aren't really working out so well
Tomorrow's shining off our face
Yesterday's shadow is at our back, at our back

So why must you always dress in black?

People, they don't take advice, they only give it

And the only way you're ever gonna learn is to live it
So what you spent your younger years
Parlaying on the wrong side of the track

Why must you always dress in black?

If you have to lie, do it as quickly

And as thoroughly as you can
This morning I woke up slow feeling
like the shell of a man

don't blame me for us, you cried!
Oh, cut me some slack
And tell me why must you always dress in black?


She wore high heels, the ones that can pierce your heart
Just 'cause you go down in history

doesn't mean you're really all that smart
Like Robert E. Lee, you're at your
best when under attack

Why must you always dress in black?

You call in sick on Monday

Tuesday you show up late
Wednesday you left early
Thursday you fight with a boss you hate

Friday you up and quit
Saturday you want your old job back
Sunday morning you wake up all dressed in black

Why must you always dress in black?
