She Said



She said "hold the candle flame"
She said "taste the wax"
She said "it's all been a crying shame"
She said "man, why don't you relax
Let's take a bath"

She said "Boston, Massachusetts"
She said "New Orleans"
She said "a slow cruise to Aruba"
She said "man, I know what you need"

   She said "now why do you cry?"
   She said "don't ever wonder why"
   Oh why, why did she say what she said?
   Uh-huh

She said "I can't make you happy"
She said "it's all up to you"
She said as she shimmered there in the spotlight
And watched me come unglued
She watched me come unglued

She said "Boston, Massachusetts"
She said "New Orleans"
She said "we fall hard there in the winter
But we rise higher in springtime"

   Yeah, so why do I cry?
   Why do I ever wonder why?  Oh why?
   Why did she say what she said?
   Why did she say what she said?
   Why, yeah, did she say what she said?

Sanctuary
She sells sanctuary, oh iih
She sells sanctuary, that's no lie
Santuary
Santuary
She sells sanctuary in a seashell sanctuary
