Green Tea

Music by John Scofield; Lyrics by Holly Holmes

 

I tried to tell her, I tried to tell her, but she wouldn’t hear

I tried to tell her, I tried to tell her, but she wouldn’t hear

 

She turned her back on me,

Busy fixing peppermint Green Tea

We started talking ‘bout the weather outside

I couldn’t look her in the eye

 

I tried to tell her, I tried to tell her, but she wouldn’t hear

 

I tried to tell her, I tried to tell her, but she wouldn’t hear

I tried to tell her, I tried to sell her on the new idea

 

I said you cared for me

As she contemplated her Green Tea

She seemed to sparkle as she gladly described

The benefits her tea provides

 

I tried to tell her, I tried to tell her, but she wouldn’t hear

 

I tried to tell her, I tried to tell her, but she wouldn’t hear

I tried to tell her, I tried to tell it all despite my fear

 

I sat her next to me

And I drank her peppermint Green Tea

One laughing look was all it took to decide

That ev’rything had been a lie

 

I tried to tell her, I tried to tell but she already knew
