Lyrics
Say you see through the folly but you do it for the fame
And I'm fighting the jet stream drinking cheap wine on airplanes
And you're in LA not Chicago
Key under mat, I walk the dog, order in, home alone

Found your letter on a full moon Sunday night
Some other girl in your spell casting plans for her life
Pour the vodka and it dulls sharp knives
Breathe the words of diamonds on rings

And you didn't mean to do it
So I don't have to believe it
If you didn't really mean it
Then magical thinking gets us by

Think for the after show those candy-colored lips
Your age is showing and you've gotta work harder for it
It's always easier with freshmen
They're not as clever and she'll bring you to life

And you didn't mean to do it
So I don't have to believe it
If you didn't really mean it
Then magical thinking gets us by

My fairweather friend
Fairweather friend

Live for the folly but you did it for the fame
Now you're fragile as porcelain drinking cheap wine on airplanes
Did I ever leave Chicago?
Got your message that you're doing well

And you didn't mean to do it
So I don't have to believe it
If we didn't really mean it
Then magical thinking gets us by

Gets us by, gets us by

[Repeat: x4]
You say you see through the folly but you did it for the fame

My fairweather friend
