When I finally heard the news my dear
It wasn't from your mouth
He just looked me in the eye
And then he let the words spill out

Darling I'm so happy
You've been waiting for so long
To finally find the guy to hold
That has more right than wrong

And what's this is it actually for real?
I guess at least it's good to know
You have a heart to steal
I held it for a while
Tell me that's not true
My dear it's clear these last two years
Have been a gift to you

So picture this when you go to kiss
I hope that every time
You'll think of me
And I'm gonna let it get to me

I know the scars on your legs
I've seen them
In my head
Like a map up to you
When I'm climbing into bed
And I don't think that it's fair
That he would lie with you there
And use my directions to
Get right there next to you

Forget the who, the what, the when
The question is here is why
You set the bar so high
And then you dropped it for this guy

You're into insincerity
It's scary that I wonder
Perhaps the bar was raised to high
That he just walked right under

And what's this is it actually for real
Why don't you pick an extra day
And call and ask her how she feels

Suppose you could just wait a month
You'll find out for yourself
The worst part is the truth
You're just like everybody else

So picture this when you go to kiss
I hope that every time
You'll think of me
Your then and now
They will all run out
I know he can't compare to what I used to be
And I'm gonna let it get to me

I know the scars on your legs
I've seen them
In my head
Like a map up to you
When I'm climbing into bed
And I don't think that it's fair
That he would lie with you there
And use my directions to
Get right there next to you

Do you remember when we held each other
On the twenty third?
And as silent as your heart beat
It was the only thing I heard

Does he know your dogs' names
Or the fact that he can't claim

That he knows the scars on your legs
Still see them in my head
Like a map up to you
When we climb into bed
And I don't think that it's fair
That I can't lie with you there
And use my directions to
Get right there next to you

On your legs
I've seen them in my head
Like a map up to you
When I'm climbing into bed
And I don't think that it's fair
That he would lie with you there
And use my directions to
Get right there next to you
