A Fine Time to Need Me

1,2,3,4

Yeah, you left that house with a slamming of the door
Let your words fly loose like bees from a jar
You said Heaven went away
And put your heart in a noose
And made you quit cigarettes
And get an interest in booze

Oh darling, why you gotta give me your problems?

You picked a fine time to need me
You picked a fine time to need me
You picked a fine time to need me
Believe me
A fine time to need me

Hey little baby, you surprised by the pain?
You get burnt in the fire and wet in the rain
Yeah well, it ain’t my fault you let the stakes fly high
You were pouring gasoline on someone else’s fire

Oh darling, why you gotta give me your problems?

You picked a fine time to need me
You picked a fine time to need me
You picked a fine time to need me
Accuse me
A fine time to need me

Well, I thought it used to be a lot colder
Just to show what it really comes down to
Who wants a love that doesn’t soften things over
Alone with a cigarette, a poor wizard to the end
I know I know you wanna build your own misery
Even though you never really solve the mystery
You’re on your own
Away from me

You picked a fine time to need me
You picked a fine time to need me
You picked a fine time to need me
Defeat me
A fine time to need me
