Close But No Cigar

Remember all the times you begged and borrowed?
"We're all in this together", we'll help you back
You certainly helped yourself, you took the whole meal
along with all the silverware you could stack
But when I was drowning, you were busy frowning
"Sorry we can't help you now, maybe next month somehow
We've got to work this as a team,
Money isn't real, remember the dream
You almost had me thinking it's not far.
You were close -- close but no cigar

Remember when you said I was a liar?
You'd show the world and make sure they'd all laugh at me
But I've got some news for you -- your pants are on fire
along with your facade of integrity

I tried so hard to build some understanding
Spent three hours on the phone while you wore me down
I don't know if you took note, but I answered everything you wrote
And all you could do was throw your weight around.
You wanted me to say that we were friends
You got so close I got the bends
While I bent over, you drove off in my car.
Yes you got close -- close but no cigar.

The voices in your head say you can't be wrong
What's good for you is good for all mankind
While you worked for your own ends, I defended you to my friends
Because you said we were so intertwined
I tried to clean up the blurry lines,
but you covered them up with valentines
and words that had me dreaming on a star
Yes you got close -- close but no cigar.
