lyrics

Cupid said to Psyche, "Girl, I packed up the car
I'm going out west to be a movie star"
Psyche said, "Knock em dead, you always had that charm
And such a Roman sense of entertainment"

Now Cupid's got the world eating out of his hand
And we're both still waiting for our big chance
Our big screen, our big romance
And love was always such a disappointment

And it's good to have you here again
Just like I used to way back then
And it's good to know precisely when
The show's supposed to end

So darling, lay me down and let me down
We're both a good deal older now
We broke some hearts and we broke some vows
And love was always such a disappointment

And my, my, my, how you have grown
So tall upon your stepping stones
Try, try, try not to die alone
But love is always such a disappointment

Well, I told a lot of lies, made a lot of mistakes
I did a lot of living for loving's sake
Guess I was waiting for my big break
And love was always such a disappointment

See, it speaks so sweet in a voice so deep
Of pleasures you can carry and joys you can keep
And there's never been talk so cheap
It's all just one big empty advertisement

So keep that hope in the bottom of the box
The future's just a trick they do with mirrors and clocks
The same soft lens, the same long shots
The same big names, the same big disappointments

And it's good to have you here with me
To reenact this tragedy
The rise and fall of urgency
On one, two, three

So darling, lay me down and let me down
We're both a good deal older now
We broke some hearts and we broke some vows
And love was always such a disappointment

And my, my, my, how you have grown
So tall upon your stepping stones
Try, try, try not to die alone
But love is always such a disappointment
