CHRIS HILLMAN lyrics - Fallen Favorite

CHRIS HILLMAN
"Fallen Favorite"

Green velvet and ballet shoes
Your sharpshooter eyes have gone aimless
You want me when you danced my way
And now you choose to lose
Don't look at me 'cause I'm blameless

White dresses and a message from home
Crazy smile has unraveled
You love to dance the night away
And I'd be home alone
Don't worry 'bout that I'm well-travelled

You thought I taught you all I know
I told you about givin'
They say that people live and learn
But baby you're just livin'

Faded denim and broken dreams
The stage door hands are now empty
I helped you step out
When friends were far-between
I wouldn't come back if you let me

Buried feelings and borrowed times
Your big city plans are all shattered
When music ends the dancing's done
Were you ever mine?
What makes you think that it mattered?

You thought I taught you all I know
I told you about givin'
They say that people live and learn
But baby you're just

They say that people live and learn
But baby you're just livin'
Just livin'
Just livin
