lyrics:

Something’s changed
It’s not that I fear but
Maybe it’s that I took care of you
too many times,
And you grew weaker for a kindness
Sometimes kindness from a friend
can break a man

I can understand
You sit there like a child-man
I never meant to make you cry
I’d turn the clock but how can I?
You’re Old Enough to know
You’re Old Enough to know

Why do you shun me
when I treat you with respect?
You’ve been my best friend,
joy and happiness
But without a tender kiss sometimes,
We may as well say goodbye...

Cuz late at night, as the cars go by,
I lay here and watch you try
to pretend you’re not breaking inside
For someone to sing in your ear...
I can understand...
You sit there like a child and beg,
But if you want me to stay,
Baby has to cry sometime
Don’t be kind to me,
I wanna walk away...

You’re Old Enough to know
You’re Old Enough to know
You’re Old Enough to know
Ah, you’re Old Enough to know

"Old Enough" (a duet with Ben Harper) is also classic Rickie Lee Jones, with its irresistible punchy horns that somehow miraculously transforms pain to joy...
