lyrics

Go when you can, pick up my pieces
Like stones to throw them back
You’re good in the sun to learn from a basement
I must be lonely to want all that

There were three of us tangled
like women end to end,
You weren’t alone when you chose to bring me in

Your recipe words, these typical lines
Oh they turn my head around
With little concern for what I might find
As our cigarettes burn down,
They burn down

There were three of us corned
And no one but you knew,
You weren’t alone when I chose to follow you

I know what not to give,
I know what to keep saved,
Though every flag was raised,
I gave
Love

I’m holding myself, losing the myth
I’ve been building up like bricks
There’s no other choice but get over it
And the taste of bitterness,
My bitterness

There were three of us tangled
like women end to end,
You weren’t alone
You weren’t alone
You still wanted more
from the girl you loved before.
