My tape recorder,
It must be lyin'
'Cause this I just can't believe.
I hear a voice that's cryin',
That's not me.

The wheel goes round.
I hear a sound.
It's comin' out all wrong.
And I swear to you I never wrote that song.

I been livin' in my own shell so long:
The only place I ever feel at home.

And oh, that music,
I hate those lyrics.
It stayed inside me so long.
And I swear to you I never wrote that song.

But pardon me,
I'm not lookin' for sympathy,
Not sympathy.
I'm just thinking out loud.
The melody,
It goes nowhere pointlessly.
Silence please.

I been livin' in my own shell so long:
The only place I ever feel at home.

And oh, that music,
I hate those lyrics.
It stayed inside me so long.
And I swear to you I never.
