Outrageous Love

by Alex McMurray Velvety Pod Music (BMI)

never say you're sorry just let the push begin

be the mannequin at the show and tell

rumors down on broome just push the dirt around

at the lost and found looking for something to sell

and i know where you're standing and i know you can't talk

and no one's going to see you there at all

the night's going to come in like a straggler

to tell forgotten tales of outrageous love


Taylor Made himself can't bear the half of it

there's just nowhere to sit no one who knows the game

the joes on his agenda ain't come out much yet

to light his cigarette sanctify his very name

but taylor's seen these boys a thousand times

he sees through the thing they're dreaming of

his sleeve is full of tricks and he's got one more card

but he'll never have to play it he'll only have to say it's outrageous love


you're a queen and i'm a quitter but i just can't quit you

the wind smells like winter way up high upon the roof

the car is in the river now it's now or never time

to put it all on the line


and when i go before not after you

that wouldn't do i would be powerless

wrap me up in all the lists of things to do

and see it through--there's matches in my bag

just don't keep our children close around you

don't let them learn to sit and wait

'cause you we're out there looking when it found you

it was never never only late

outrageous love outrageous love
