My Brave, My Brave, My Brave Face.

Ive Been Living In Style,
Unaccostumed As I Am
To The Luxury Life,
I've Been Hitting The Town
And It Didn't Hit Back

I've Been Doing The Rounds
Unaccostumed As I Am
To The Time Of My Hands,
Now I Don't Have To Tell Anybody
When Im Going To Get Back

Ever Since You Went Away
I've Had This Sentimental Inclination
Not To Change A Single Thing
As I Pull The Sheet Back On My Bed,
I Want To Go Bury My Head
In Your Pillow.

Now That I'm Alone Again
I Can't Stop Breaking Down Again
The Simplest Things Set Me Off Again
And Take Me To That Place
Where I Can't Find My Brave Face,
Where I Can't Find My Brave Face,
My Brave, My Brave, My Brave Face
My Brave Face.

I've Been Living A Lie
Unaccostumed As I Am
To The Work Of A Housewife,
I've Been Breaking Up
Dirty Dishes And Throwing Them Away

Ever Since You Left I Have Been Trying To Compose
A "Baby Will You Please Come Home" Note Meant For You.
As I Clear Away Another Untouched T.V. Dinner
From The Table I Laid For Two.

Now That I'm Alone Again
I Can't Stop Breaking Down Again
The Simplest Things Set Me Off Again
And Take Me To That Place
Where I Can't Find My Brave Face,
Where I Can't Find My Brave Face,
My Brave, My Brave, My Brave Face
My Brave Face
