lyrics

Jenny, you're a house with a garden view
that I love waking up to
But I'm not the knight you slept beside
way back when
So keep your castles in the rearview
and I'll keep mine ahead of you
There ain't no way that I'm goin back again.

You keep one ear to the ground for other walkers
Never listen to the streets, especially the talkers.

I think you found a part of me
that struck you like archery, Ms. Genevieve
And though my arrows aim to please
Oh please, just please... Don't get me wrong
That ain't chivalry.

I'm somewhere in between two sizes of shining armor
and that sword would never pull for me
So I never even bothered
No my cuts are never clean
In every one I plant a seed
Watch them grow and become memories, you'll see

I think you found a part of me
that struck you like archery, Ms. Genevieve
And though my arrows aim to please
Oh please, just please... Don't get me wrong
Don't get me wrong

Sometimes I wonder if you can see it coming
Between my slips and all of my running, honey
You do catch my falls, don't you?
So if this whole damn thing does depend on balance
Would you pick me up when the good half happens
Or will I have to crawl?

I think you found a part of me

I think you found a part of me
that struck you like archery, Ms. Genevieve
And though my arrows aim to please
Oh please, just please... Don't get me wrong
Don't get me wrong
That ain't chivalry.
