play How Come We Don't Fight?

from Living Ever-Lovin' LIVE

How come we don't fight?
Are you just trying to humor me?
How come we don't fight?
Is there something you're not telling me?
Are you selling me the lie that I'm always right?
Oh baby, how come we don't fight?

Well, I don't mean no harm, And you know you are my sweetie
But I've been disarmed, and you know I didn't sign no treaty

So, how come we don't fight?
Do I see a hint of a grin?
How come we don't fight?
Have I been outsmarted again?
Have you played me like a violin since our very first night?
Oh baby, how come we don't fight?

Well, I don't need a big fight
A little tiff will scratch my itch
But I won't feel right until
You stop pulling this bait-and-switch

How come we don't fight?
Did I jinx us just by saying it?
How come we don't fight?
That serenity prayer--you still praying it?
I got one thing on my mind when you turn out the light
Oh, baby, how come we don't fight?
