It Couldn't Be Me lyrics Johnathan Rice



Lyrics to It Couldn't Be Me
We're driving through the canyons
Singing songs from the sixties 
The telephone rang, she said, 

“Babe, do you miss me?”
And ain't it a shame not to love the one you're with 
Well she spoke with the prettiest mouth
And she scorned me 
She sharpened her teeth and flashed them to warn me
That ain't it a shame when you hate the one you loved


Well, it couldn't be me
No, it couldn't be me
No, they're not in your dreams
He don't look a thing like me


Well I dated a rich girl
With a mother of pearl
Who paid rent in her high rise
The weight of the world
And ain't it a shame when you're exchangin' all your brand new gifts 


Well after a night on the floor,
she put the chain on her door
I'd worn out my welcome
I guess she got bored
She laid her on my brother
And laid him across my bed


No, it couldn't be me
No, it couldn't be me
No, they're not in your dreams
He don't look a thing like me



Well it sounds like rain
And here that's a rare thing
Out here in the desert,
I'm stealing my water
From a hole in a mountain that flows to the affordable homes
And from the faucet it drips
And I'll clean up the messes 
The others have left us 
Well I think they've blessed us
There's a chain on my door
But I'm in love with the one I'm with



And it couldn't be me
No, it couldn't be me
No, they're not in your dreams
He don't look a thing like me
Well it couldn't be me
No, it couldn't be me
No, they're not in your dreams
He don't look a thing like me
