Smart in a Stupid Way Song Lyrics
She had eyes like crazy diamonds
And you ran with feet of clay
we rolled the windows tight as they would go
It was a smoggy day
She looked up and asked me if I ever had a lover that I did not betray
And I turned on the radio and I looked the other way
She said you're smart, but in a stupid way
And this is the price that you pay
For being smart in a stupid way
You stand there staring while your lover walks away
Being smart, in a stupid way
The doors they close like eyelids
The train just pulled away
Sometimes I smell the perfume that she was wearing that day
And I wonder if there's anyone that I'll ever love in any way
Maybe I'll grow up and be good someday
Maybe this pain I feel will go away
So why is my heart so hollow,
And why are my dreams so shallow?
And why don't I ever have anything else to say"
And why is my love so far away"
