I finally had all my ducks in a row
Peace and quiet, the means of subtraction
And how she got in, I'm not sure that I know
Two weeks on and my spine was in traction, my eyes in a basket

Well, god in my heart is so out of phase
And that kind of girl she ain't nobody's daughter
I'm just not used to these powerful waves
She shallows the breath and I'm taking on water
What am I to do now?

I call on a beautiful wish with a moral compass
I better swim

Hide from my psychic derailleur
Drive this car to the sea
Spend the night as high as a cannon in a towering hemlock

But it's no use you can always be found
A creature of habit has no real protection
I'll tell her I leave if she don't settle down
She sees it's a lie on closer inspection
Like everyone else does

The running, a terrible chomp
All this smoke in my eyes
I'm just a simple man
Cursed with an honest heart
Why'd she go and tear it all apart?

The running, a terrible chomp
All this smoke in my eyes
I'm just a simple man
Cursed with an honest heart
Why'd she go and tear it all apart?
