lyrics

I'm tired of dating potential. I'm tired of being a work in progress. I'm tired of trying to be the idea I have stuck in my head. I'm trying to be better. I'm trying to be more honest. But if self-help is like the weather, I feel horribly underdressed.

Seattle skies, don't cry for me. I'm getting by sleeping in my Jeep.

She said, "Oh, I thought you'd give everything for us."
I said, "Oh, I'll give anything but up."

I'm tired of feeling lonely, when I'm surrounded by lots of people who believe in me and genuinely support my dreams. So, I'm trying to be better, more gracious and appreciative. But despite the words, I still haven't learned how to take a compliment.

Seattle skies, don't cry for me. I'm getting by sleeping in my Jeep.

She said, "Oh, I thought you'd give everything for us."
I said, "Oh, but is anything enough for you?"
She said, "Oh, I thought you'd give everything for us."
I said, "Oh, I'll give anything but up..

I won't give up on what makes me me. She said, "I'm too old for your daydreams." So I'm singing, "Darling, you have my heart, but I've gotta finish what I started."

Seattle skies, don't cry for me. I'm getting by.
