Let me tell you about Colleen
My best friend since I was three
She always had a taste for dangerous things
Her scandalous tongue was extreme
I was always the one left holding the bag
Smiling and covering her tracks
Best friends, they always do that

She was the first to smoke a cigarette (she was the first)
She once let me watch her make love (woah woah yeah)
It was the kind of balance made by kings
She took it all, but left me some

I guess I'd always thought she'd have my back
But it didn't work out like that (no, no, no)
The moment I laid eyes on Jack

It was my time it was my space
It was the bright red he brought to my face
Every underdog has their day
Sorry it hurts
But Colleen, I saw him first

It all happened on a Thursday (Thursday)
He backed his car right into mine (crash, boom, bang)
"There are no accidents", my mother told me once
My heart agreed with her this time

Colleen jumped out of the car, screaming
"What have you done?!"
Jack offered apologies
I just got weak in the knees

It was my time it was my space
It was the bright red he brought to my face
Every underdog has their day
Sorry it hurts
But Colleen, I saw him first

The minute that you're in it
You know there's no turning back (turning back)
Like me and my Jack (me and Jack)
A funny thing
To feel the weight of the pendulum swing
When it starts to swing (love changes things)

Colleen, armed with charm and body
Still couldn't take away my man
Last I heard, she was in rehab
I guess that scale got out of hand

C-c-c-c..Covered from head to toe in coloured tattoos
Searching for higher views
Hungry for I love you's

It was my time it was my space
It was the bright red he brought to my face
Every underdog has their day
Sorry it hurts
But Colleen, I saw him first
Colleen, I saw him first
