Velvet Coat

This song is by Jackie Tohn and appears on the album Beguiling (2009).

Velvet coat, why can't you be
A little more like orange vest?
Velvet coat, yes, I see
You had to say these things to get them off your chest.

You said if I spend my energy on you,
I'll have none for my music.
Getting rid of you is part of my cleansing process.
It's not like I'd choose this.

Velvet coat, why can't you be
A little more like orange vest?
Velvet coat, yes, I see
You had to say these things to get them off your chest.

I asked you why it's weird now
We gave it a shot
And you said well, well we were fucking
And now we're not, now we're not.
Now we're not, now we're not.

You said I don't have enough passion in me
To put it in both my music and you.
Look, it's going on 1:45 right now
And I have to get my creative chopras in line, too
And I need to be alone on the ride to Santa Cruz, you said

Well I'm gonna start doing yoga,
I'm gonna quit the smoking,
I'm gonna start reading the paper.
I'm gonna wake up early,
Stop sleeping all day long,
Start watching less Crossing Over with John Edward

So I asked, should I come out to your show?
Yeah, it's sad, I was still trying.
To which you replied, if I said I cared one way or the other
I'd really be lying.

Cut to 3 months later,
You shaved your head, got a rooster tattoo
Oh yeah, you're a whole new you...
A little more like orange vest.
Velvet coat, oh yes, I see,
You had to say these things to get them off your chest

Velvet coat, no love from me.
You can't use me as a source of energy.
Velvet coat, if nothing else,
At least you're good for the comedy.
