b. s. u. r. lyrics – james taylor

she’s been holding on too long
hoping i’m gonna change
giving it up just a little bit more
each time i come home
looking and acting strange
putting her down for putting up with me

be as you are
as you see as i am i am
be as you are
as you see as i am i am

do you think you might improve me
trying to take control
watching every little thing i do
just like a bleeding movie
just like a leading role
mama, this ain’t me and i don’t
believe that’s you

– chorus –

first you make believe
i believe the things
that you make believe
and i’m bound to let you down
then it’s i who have been deceiving
purposely misleading
and all along you believed in me

so we circle around one another
playing i guessing game
strangers at this masquerade
pretending to know each other
we strain to catch a name
and never see the mistakes we must have made

– chorus –
