Shrine Maker

Said he was a shrine maker
Name in lights picture in the paper
Said he had friends worth knowing
And how I had to keep it going
I was in love at the time
Living in clover
I believed every line
Too soon it was over
So if you see him tell him tell him to give me a call
Things are different now I have learned how to fall
I could use something special to get over the wall
Said he was a shrine maker
A living legend a mover and a shaker
Like a fool I kept on believing
It was just myself I was deceiving
I was in love at the time
I was living in clover
I believed every line
But soon it was over
So if you see him tell him I’ve not given up
It was a slip of the tongue a run of bad luck
Still I need someone special to get me unstuck
If you see him tell him it’s alright for some
I’m not one to complain what’s done is done
I’m still playing the game that can never be won
Now don’t you hate your shrine maker…
