Shaking It

from by Max Savage

lyrics

She cut her hair off and she wouldn’t take her medicine
She caught me staring and she told me she was innocent

And maybe we were both too young to really understand
And maybe I just let the freedom get the upper hand

She used to tell me that her life was like a photograph
The way that everything could make her cry and make her laugh

We used to walk along the main street as the lights went on
I was afraid to ask her whether anything was wrong

Oh baby
You can’t imagine how it makes me feel
Oh baby,
My hands are shaking
You got me taking it all

She kept a record of the things that used to make her feel
The times she meant it and the times she only laughed for show

She used to talk about the things that made her want to leave
And her discomfort was the only thing that made it real

Oh baby
You can’t imagine how it makes me feel
Oh baby,
My hands are shaking
You got me taking it all

Now there’s a theory that we’re all just playing make believe
That every feeling every memory’s just a crazy dream

But it’s as real as anything I’ve ever felt before
Its just a feeling but I’ve never ever been so sure

Oh baby
You can’t imagine how it makes me feel
Oh baby,
My hands are shaking
You got me taking it all
