History's made its mark in anger
As everybody knows, it's what we do
It's nothing new

The next chords struck are fault and failure
And we both know that finger points on cue
There's blame for two

Do you really want him calling, Newo
Do you really think he's coming back to you?
Oh, once the world stops spinning, read that writing on the wall

Is there another, Newo?
Is there cushion just enough to break the fall
Oh, don't you cry
Just lie there baby in the past, 'cause if you want it all right now

Hide your feathers, on the back porch, baby
He's coming home for, you've been such a liar
Hide your feathers
Little back porch lady
You're too old
Enough to cry those sorry eyes out over the world

Hear me scream outside your window
I'm only here to make my peace with you
There's something new

Oh, it was our time, that day in our lives
If I could do things different what would I choose?
Oh, don't you cry, Mama
Please, don't cry Mama
Oh, don't you cry, no, no

Right now, hide your feathers, on the back porch, baby
He's coming home for you've been such a liar
Hide your feathers
Little back porch lady
You're too old
Enough to cry those sorry eyes out over the world

No other, would wait for a lover
To embrace, boy
When there's no more room for love
You'll sell her off to the sharks
[x2]

Right now, hide your feathers, on the back porch, baby
He's coming home for you've been such a liar
Right now, hide your feathers, on the back porch, baby
He's coming home for you've been such a liar

Hide your feathers
Little back porch lady
You're too old
Enough to cry those sorry eyes out over the world

Wait a minute, little back porch lady
Wait a minute, little back porch lady
I'm in love
Wait a minute, little back porch lady
Oh, don't you cry, Mama
Oh, don't you cry, no, no
Wait a minute, little back porch lady
Wait a minute, little back porch lady
I'm in love
Wait a minute, little back porch lady
Oh, don't you cry, Mama
Oh, don't you cry, no, no
