Ring Around My Finger

from You Are The Devil by Andrew Huang

/

lyrics

i was just here with a friend
teary again
thought over a beer he could mend
he stormed off and you're coming up near me to send glad eyes
and suddenly the whole room changes

everyone's dressed to dazzle
nothing casual
and we say it's worth all the hassle
looking like the king of the castle
but i'm not on the search for the dirt or the rascal
at the bar with a shot glass
i'm in a black suit with a cane and a top hat
no chance i could fall flat
and you slide up in a short dress
looking all that
we dance ring around the rosie
getting cozy
act like you actually know me
i guess sometimes we're both lonely
but there are so many secrets we don't see

girl, it's not that you're not sweet
it's just that i don't see how this could work
when you've got a man and he's not me

and i've got this ring around my finger
to remind me what i'm supposed to do
girl, you're fine, you know it's true
but i'm not gonna get close to you

in the club, on the dancefloor
forgetting everything i stand for
show me how you make a man yours
it's a hard thing to say no to
but i know it's wrong, and i am sure

girl, it's not that you're not sweet
it's just that i don't see how this could work
when you've got a man and he's not me
woah, girl, it's not that i'm unsure
you're more than i deserve
but it won't work when i'm trying to keep this conscience pure

and i've got this ring around my finger
to remind me what i'm supposed to do
girl, you're fine, you know it's true
but i'm not gonna get close to you

and i've got this ring around my finger
to remind me what i'm supposed to do
girl, you're fine, you know it's true
but i'm not gonna get close to you

on the street
in a taxi
can't see in the backseat
tell me truly
is this gonna make us happy
if it's you and me
one flesh cheating on a half each
if we take it any further
we'll be guiltier than murder
love's voice in my head
i'm telling you i heard her
never made this mistake before
and i'm a slow learner

girl, it's not that i'm unsure
i've been careless with my words
and this won't work
'cause i've got my love
and you're not her

and i've got this ring around my finger
to remind me what i'm supposed to do
girl, you're fine, you know it's true
but i'm not gonna get close to you

and i've got this ring around my finger
to remind me what i'm supposed to do
girl, you're fine, you know it's true
but i'm not gonna get close to you
