then she said my name lyrics – black crowes

so, let me tell you ’bout the book that i’ve been readin’
it’s got all my favorite words
an’ let me tell you ’bout who i saw schemin’
you better know, it’s not my girl

an’ let me tell you ’bout what i’ve been seein’
it’s the window to the world
“let me tell you ’bout the secret i’ve been keepin'”
said the oyster to the pearl

(are you sorry?)
no not me, and tell me why should i be?
’cause i’ve been knocked right off of my feet
and no, i didn’t even missed a beat

i never thought a love could be like this
but then she said my name
now i’m wrapped around her finger
i’ll never be the same

“so let me tell you ’bout the joke that you’ve been livin'”
said the clown to the fool
“let me tell you ’bout the wheel that keeps on spinnin'”
said the teacher to the school

(are you worried?)
well could be, ’cause i’ll tell you what i’ve seen
since i’ve weathered storms that would sink most ships
yes, i know when to b*tton my lip

i never thought a love could be like this
and then she said my name
now i’m wrapped around her finger
i’ll never be the same

i never thought a love could be like this
but then she said my name
now i’m wrapped around her finger
i’ll never be the same, oh no

offer me a melody
pour a cup of wine
spill your deepest memory
and someday you’ll be fine

i never thought a love could be like this
and then she said my name
now i’m wrapped around her finger
i’ll never be the same

i never thought a love could be like this
but then she said my name
now i’m wrapped around her finger
i’ll never be the same
