New Lover Lyrics

I can't pretend that all is well, it's like I'm haunted
by a ghost
There are times I cannot speak your name for the
catchin' in my throat,
There are things I will not sing for the sting of sour

I feel like a miser, I feel low and mean
For accusing you of stealin' what I offered you for
Still it baffles the belief sometimes what thieves we
lovers be.

I don't know who you're with these days, might be with
someone new
And if you are, I hope he treats you like a lover ought
to do.
But whoever makes you happy, it don't really matter who
I've got a new lover now, I hope you've got a lover

Praise the water under bridges, the time they say will
Praise the fonder, that still grows on the absent heart
and fields
Praise be to this pain, these days it's all I seem to

Perhaps the fault was mine
Perhaps I just ignored who you're always gonna be,
Instead of who I took you for.
I've been treated worse it's true, still I expected

But I will not chase your shadow as you go from room to
Droppin' handkerchiefs and daggers, smokin' guns and
other clues
For what someone did with someone and who did what to
I've got a new lover now, I hope you've got a lover

I've got a new lover now, I know that she's not mine,
I only want to hold her, I don't need to read her mind,
And she only looks like you when she's in a certain

I got a new lover now, she knows just what I need.
When I wake up in the night, she can read me back my
And she loves them, though she never needs to tell me
what they mean.

I hope you've got a lover now, hope you've got somebody
Can give you what you need like I couldn't seem to do.
But if you're sad and you are lonesome and you've got
nobody true,
I'd be lying if I said that didn't make me happy too.
I'd be lying if I said that didn't make me happy too.
