Just Like Him

Brandy Clark 2014

He was kinda like Superman
Show up, save the day, disappear and then
We wouldn't hear from him 'til Christmas
He was a whole lotta fun
Til he got one drink too drunk
A Fight would start he'd be breaking hearts and dishes
I used to say that I'd be damned
Before I'd ever fall in love with a man
Like the one Mama wasted her youth on

I wait up all night alone I feel like I'm six years old again
You're just like him

Daddy had the bluest eyes
Kept my Mama hypnotized
Now I finally realize the reason
They say love's like coming home
And I came from a broken one
So why am I surprised you're always leaving

I used to say that I'd be damned before I'd ever fall in love with a man
Like the one Mama wasted her youth on
And I wait up all night alone I feel like I'm six years old again
You're just like him
