Aimee Mann - Going Through The Motions Lyrics




Something isn't right
I don't know how I know
But baby, it's despite
Your dog-and-pony show

I can hear it coming
You're only going through the motions, baby
With your engines humming
You're just going through the motions, baby

Feel like I'm in jail
With you and Mr. Hyde
A guy who leaves a trail
About a mile wide

So it starts already
That you're just going through the motions, baby
You can throw confetti
But you're still going through the motions, baby
Going through the motions, baby

They'll have a big parade
For every day that you stay clean
But when the trumpets fade
You'll go under like a submarine
And you won't see it coming
No, you won't see it coming

You could have it made
Up there in San Rafael
But baby, I'm afraid
I'll never see you well

Because I've seen the tally
And you're just going through the motions, baby
To a big finale
That comes from going through the motions, baby
Going through the motions, baby
Going through the motions, baby
You're just going through the motions, baby

    Something isn't right
    I don't know how I know
    But baby, it's despite
    Your dog-and-pony show
    I can hear it coming
    You're only going through the motions, baby
    With your engines humming
    You're just going through the motions, baby
    Feel like I'm in jail
    With you and Mr. Hyde
    A guy who leaves a trail
    About a mile wide
    So it starts already
    That you're just going through the motions, baby
    You can throw confetti
    But you're still going through the motions, baby
    Going through the motions, baby
    They'll have a big parade
    For every day that you stay clean
    But when the trumpets fade
    You'll go under like a submarine
    And you won't see it coming
    No, you won't see it coming
    You could have it made
    Up there in San Rafael
    But baby, I'm afraid
    I'll never see you well
    Because I've seen the tally
    And you're just going through the motions, baby
    To a big finale
    That comes from going through the motions, baby
    Going through the motions, baby
    Going through the motions, baby
    You're just going through the motions, baby

    Used to work for the Home Depot long, long, long time ago when I came to Canada in 2004.
    Night Shift, Sleepy ...everythings from the scratch, no English, no money at all at that time.:)
    I don't know why, but  I'm waiting for this song every night coz it boost me up even I couldn't get the lyrics.
    Still my favorite song - listen it from time to time when I'm in blue.:)

    Same here :) I listened to it after hearing her "Save Me" on the radio, and instantly fell in love with the album. Very addictive, and like you I've listened to this more times than I can count, yet it still doesn't get old. Much love to Aimee for sharing her music with the world <3

    The Forgotten Arm is one of my all time fav albums and I can't stop listening to it even when I try. I'm an old "hippie" from the late 60's early 70's and it's hard to fing good new music. I've loved her since the 80's Thanks for posting!
