Aimee Mann - Medicine Wheel Lyrics




The day you left and you called me bitch
I called you selfish, better pull that switch
Put my son on amphetamines
He came home crying and there's your proof
Crying 'bout nothing but a missing tooth
I did the right thing.

You shade the truth almost everyday
Phone calls at night “it's going to be ok”
Are you saddened, baby, under the bridge?
Are you saddened, baby, on Lake Street?

Black marker on cardboard
Little drawing of a medicine wheel
But everything that's good you steal
Everything that's good you steal

Maybe you'll wake up in jail alone
And hold the handle of the one pay phone
And do the right thing
Like I once tried but I bent the truth
A five dollar dent for a little lost tooth
There's a payback in front of me
Because once you were like a walking high
Breaking in motion through the parking lot

Are you saddened, baby, under the bridge?
Are you saddened, baby, on Lake Street?

Black marker on cardboard
Little drawing of a medicine wheel
Everything that's good you steal
Everything that's good you steal

Words of encouragement are just as real
Saving my faith does have a smooth group appeal

Are you saddened, baby, under the bridge?
Are you saddened, baby, on Lake Street?

Black Marker on cardboard
Little drawing of a medicine wheel
Everything that's good you steal
Everything that's good you steal
Everything that's good you steal
From me

  1. John Phillips

    I turned 60 years old this year and Aimee Mann is one of the great artists of my lifetime. For me, she is right there with the Beatles and R.E.M. , also 2 of my favs.

  2. STEVE HERMES BUCHCANON

    I CANNOT HANDLE PLACING "DISNEYLAND" PHARMACEUTICALS IN MY BODY. I AM NOT A MICKEY MOUSE!

  3. STEVE HERMES BUCHCANON

    THERE ARE A LOT OF GHOSTS! ! ! BAD! ! !

    Since it was posted years ago, I can't reply directly but to "suereed" who asked:

    "too much production for me, are there any Amiee Mann albums without strings and brass and kitchen sinks... like... just guitar?"

    The song "Save me", is an acoustic song, and the song "Wise up" is a piano song. Both are from the movie soundtrack for "Magnolia".

    Jon Payne

    Or Deathly. Now that's a track....

  5. david waddy

    Don't think she's ever written a song that isn't close to perfect - loved her since 87 - 'life could be fucking great'!!

  6. Izzy Boone

    black marker on cardboard, who saw that, her majesty

    No, Fiona Apple has resemblences with Aimee, she's been around way longer than Fiona!!!!

    Nick Bauserman

    twilliger123 apples and oranges. Fiona has an odd low register. Aimee is more prolific anyway. They’re connected to PT Anderson.
