The White Stripes - A Martyr for My Love for You lyrics

Download A Martyr for My Love for You 320kbps mp3

She was sixteen
And six feet tall
In a crowd of teenagers
Coming out of the mall.

She stumbled
Started to slip and fall
Teeter tottered on the top
Of patent leather shoes.

I happen to catch her and said,
"Maybe these ruby shoes are
A little cumbersome for you."
Maybe for you, now.

But, not as shaky
As I must've seemed
Talking junk through her
Giggle little teenage dream.

And on the phone I could not compete
My dumb luck
Fake confidence
Was getting weak.

And for a sec
I thought I sounded sweet.
But sure enough
In a gruff, faint voice
I heard myself speak...

I could stay a while
But, sooner or later
I'll break your smile.
And I can tell a joke
But, one of these days
I'm bound to choke.
And we might share a kiss
But, I feel like I can't go
Through with this.
And I bet I could build a home
But, I know the right thing
For me to do
Is to leave you alone.
Leave you alone now.

I'm beginning to like you
So you probably won't get me
What I'm going to do.

I'm walking away from you
It probably don't make sense
To you.

But, I'm trying to save you
From all of the things that
I'll probably say or do.
I'll probably do, now.

She was sixteen
And six feet tall
In a crowd of teenagers
Coming out of the mall.

She stumbled
Started to slip and fall
Teeter tottered on the top
Of patent leather shoes.

I happen to catch her and said,
"Maybe these ruby shoes are
A little cumbersome for you."
Maybe for you, now.

But, not as shaky
As I must've seemed
Talking junk through her
Giggle little teenage dream.

And on the phone I could not compete
My dumb luck
Fake confidence
Was getting weak.

And for a sec
I thought I sounded sweet.
But sure enough
In a gruff, faint voice
I heard myself speak...

I could stay a while
But, sooner or later
I'll break your smile.
And I can tell a joke
But, one of these days
I'm bound to choke.
And we might share a kiss
But, I feel like I can't go
Through with this.
And I bet I could build a home
But, I know the right thing
For me to do
Is to leave you alone.
Leave you alone, now.

You'll probably call me a fool
And say I'm doing exactly
What a coward would do.

And I'm beginning to like you
It's a shame.
What a lame way to live,
But, what can I do?

Well, I hope you appreciate
What I do...
I'm a martyr for my love for you.
A martyr for my love for you.
A martyr for my love for you.
A martyr for my love for you.
Oh.
