Indigo Girls /

True Romantic

Baby I got the best intentions
But I just can’t do it
Baby I got the truest aim
But I just can’t win
Baby I got a good vibration
But I just can’t play it
Baby I spent my only fortune
On the wages of sin.

So you, you got to be, extra forgiving
And you, you got to be super strong
You got to be a true romantic
I want you to look the other way
When every thing goes wrong

Baby if you took all the good stuff
And put it all together
And you took all the bad stuff
And you threw it all away
Would I still be the girl that suits your fancy?
Would I still be the boy
That rocks your world?

If you get lonely
In trouble and the chaos
If you get bored, since you walked away
Remember what I told you
When the night was darkened
You can leave me all you need to
Baby I’m here to stay

Baby I’m going to be extra forgiving
And I’m going to be super strong
Because baby I’m a true romantic
I’m going to look the other way
When everything goes wrong
