Listen to a Sample of O.K. You Win, I Give Up
rosebud

patsy cline

fool that i was

i'm gonna hold
you to that

dreaming of 
casablanca

worn around
the edges

last love song 
 it flies


a tree grows
in brooklyn

over & over & over

marlene

o.k. you win,
i give up
(you're right,
i'm gone) 

you are

(i give up, you're right, i'm gone)

if i can get this old pen to write
i'll get it all written down tonight
i'm runnin' pictures of me and you
and knowin' now what i've gotta do
this'll save you some breath
on how it all oughta be

day by day you pontificate
on all the people you've come to hate
and here i'm sittin' at three a.m.
aware at last that i'm one of them
i'm only sorry tonight
it took me so long to see...

but i say

okay, you win, i give up, you're right, i'm gone
you stand your ground so well
i must be movin' on
you were a wizard in every way
but the man behind the curtain has had his day
okay, you win, i give up, you're right, i'm gone.

ignore the place where the ink just ran
i don't expect you to understand
that even now as i lose my pride
this heart's still tryin' to take your side
and so i turn up the light 
to drive the mem'ries away
and i say

okay, you win, i give up, you're right, i'm gone
you stand your ground so well,
i must be movin' on
your blood was blue, your suits were grey
but your feet were 100% pure clay
okay, you win, i give up, you're right, i'm gone.

on and on, the clock keeps turnin'
doesn't it know we're over now?
nearly dawn, all bridges burnin'
that clock's sure tickin' loud...
