Back to Pilgrim's Kiss

I respect your imagination
But this time you've gone too far
Paid no attention to the limitations
Of the way things really are

You made up clouds and gave them silver linings
Well I hate to rain on your parade

   But I never touched you like a man touches a woman
   I never kissed you like a pilgrim kisses truth
   I never pressed my lips against your fragile fingertips
   I never let you play the fool

Your perfect image is losing its sheen
Now that your drama has turned to dust
You mistook kindness for a balcony scene
And now your play is about to bust

You built a stage and played your part upon it
But your lines were meant for someone else

   I never touched you like a man touches a woman
   I never kissed you like a pilgrim kisses truth
   I never pressed my lips against your fragile fingertips
   I never let you play the fool

Save your scenes for someone else
You caused your heartache by yourself
I'm not listening to what you're sayin'
Cause I don't want to know

You made up clouds and gave them silver linings
Well I hate to rain on your parade

   But I never touched you like a man touches a woman
   I never kissed you like a pilgrim kisses truth
   I never pressed my lips against your fragile fingertips
   I never let you play 

   Well I never touched you
   I never kissed you
   I never pressed my lips
   I never let you play the fool
