"Lover's Cross"

(As recorded by Jim Croce)
JIM CROCE

I guess that it was bound to happen
Was just a matter of time
But now I've come to my decision
And it's a-one of the painful kind
'Cause now it seems that you wanted a marty
Just a regular guy wouldn't do
But baby I can't hang upon no lover's cross for you.

You really got to hand it to you
'Cause girl you really tried
But for ev'ry time that we spent laughin'
There were two times that I cried
And you were tryin' to make me your martyr
And that's the one thing that I couldn't do
'Cause baby I can't hang upon no lover's cross for you.

'Cause tables are meant for turnin'
And people are bound to change
And bridges are meant for burnin'
When the people and mem'ries they join aren't the same.

Still I'll hope that you can find another
Who could take what I could not
He'll have to be a super guy, or maybe a super god
'Cause I never was much of a martyr before
And I ain't 'bout to start nothin' new
And baby I can't hang upon no lover's cross for you.

'Cause tables are meant for turnin'
And people are bound to change
And bridges are meant for burnin'
When the people and mem'ries they join aren't the same.

But I hope that you can find another
Who could take what I could not
He'll have to be a super guy, or maybe a super god
'Cause I never was much of a martyr before
And I ain't 'bout to start nothin' new
And baby I can't hang upon no lover's cross for you.
