I know what shirt you were wearing when I first bared your bones
and in the light of the television, you were my own
did you think I would stay?
did you think I would go?
I was the one to make you aware of the things you ought to know
I was still waiting for the daylight when you appeared
and when I'd wrap my arms around you
I wasn't scared
I know just what I was drinking when I first was untrue
sea air, cheap beer, and some loneliness all mixed with curacao blue
did I think it would stay?
what happens there doesn't go
she was the one to make me aware of the things I ought to know
it was a mistake that caused your heartache
I was just a kid, you should have seen yourself
we were so young, but oh so serious
and I understand exactly why I fell: I didn't really want you or myself
