Lyrics Print

The little boy stepped up to the hospital door
Mama grabs him by the shirt
Says grandma's not quite like you remember from before
I want to tell you something first

Life's a cycle that we all have to go through
And grandma is right at the end of hers
Remember she still has so much love for you
But she may look a little worse

When you walk into that room
Don't say what comes to mind
Cause other folks have feelings too
And honesty is sometimes too unkind

Like you'd expect the boy grew up to be a man
The kind who never tucks his shirt
He hadn't learned too well how to really give a damn
But he sure knew how to flirt

And finally there was that one who put a ring onto his hand
He loved nothing more than waking up to her
But one day she got herself into the wrong end of a one night stand
And through his anger came an echo of those words

When you walk into that room
Don't say what comes to mind
Cause other folks have feelings too
And honesty is sometimes too unkind

I'm telling you this grandson because the world's not black and white
You have to go with what you feel
I'm old now and tonight just could easily be my last night
Whatever you say, just make sure it's real

When you walk out of this room
You say whatever the hell comes into your mind
Cause other folks have feelings too
But honesty's what keeps them on your side

When you walk out of this room
You say whatever the hell comes into your mind
