Jigsaw Lover

*It's a duet, much like Westbound Train's "Good News" *

Male:  Oh you, sweet angel you
          You take me to my knees

Female:  Oh you devil you
             Got me beggin' please!

Male:   Scoot on a little closer darlin'
           Come sit by me for awhile

Female:  You know I can't trust ya baby
              Got me livin' in denial

Male:  Well I'm sory for the things I told ya
           All the lies that had their way, with you

Female:  And I'm sorry pal but
            I can't stay awhile, but I'll listen any way

Both:  I'm a Jigsaw Lover
          A broken author
          But I know you love anyway

Female: It's been far too hard
             To be with you this far
             But I have to say, I like it this way

Male:  Well you can put me together
         For any weather
         Come what may

Female:   Dust off Mister, you can't talk that way
               I've got too much pride to let you get away

Male:  Sure you do sister, I hear what you say
          Just put your arm around me and let's forget those days

Both: You're a Jigsaw Lover
         Baby, a broken author

Male: But baby I love you

Female: I love you darlin', anyway
