Yes Man

Original Artist: Ben Folds & yMusic

Why didn't you tell me that I got fat?
It's so easy, I can see it
Now I'm looking back
As I empty one more round of smiling photographs

So many things you never mentioned to me
You didn't think I could listen
Do I come across so weak?
I guess, sometimes I am

Now, you're so gone
I don't need a Yes Man and a song
Oh, why didn't you tell me about it?

I watched a patch of morning light
As it crept across a bed and
It reached your sleepy eyes
And in that time I'd forgotten why

I couldn't tell you why I was mad
So I held it in and you kept it back
Every picture that I click and drag
It's obvious

Now, we're so gone
I don't need a Yes Man and a song
Oh, why didn't you tell me about it?

I know, sometimes
You tried to talk to me
And I make a joke of it
I do that sometimes
When I know it's gonna hurt

Why didn't you tell me that I got fat?
Now I'm crying all the way from the photomat
'Cause I see I got more chins
Than a Chinese phone book has

Now, you're so gone
I don't need a Yes Man and a song
Oh, why didn't you tell me about it?
Oh, why didn't you tell me about it?
