From the album Transparent

Lyrics

We could sit around all day long
Tell each other stories and sing each other songs
But no matter what we say
There’s something that always gets in the way

Your previous engagement
Your previous engagement

I could hang out in this town
And you’d bring me up when I’m feeling down
But sometimes it’s cause of you
Cause I know that no matter what we do

You’ve got a previous engagement
Previous engagement

We sneak around
We’re tearing up the town
Sometimes I almost see
How you might look at me
Don’t go away
But you can never stay
You know you’ve got to take
Responsibility

We might drink a bit too much
We might sit so close we almost touch
But I know you’ve got to go
And pull down the curtain on this show

For your previous engagement
Previous engagement
