close your eyes,
now can you see
you and me at 53 —
it's happening

then again,
what if I blew
my head off
like a cartoon
and drift away

what did I do?
I met you there —
half-past-two
we took a walk

through the park
in ragged shows
under the stars
I was confused
by what you wrote

in the sand and
did it say,
"I'll see things
a different way"?
'cause I do

but I wouldn't want
to be somebody's accident
like some small part of
some sad lover's happiness
I know that it's wrong
and it's all my fault,
I'm sorry

it's nothing new
the moon makes me
follow through with anything
but it's too late
I was in doubt too many days
you figured out I'm no good

but I wouldn't want
to be somebody's accident
like some small part of
some flat jumper's packages
I know that it's wrong,
but what's done is done,
I'm sorry

what can I say?
am I a broken man or just a fool
who's never learned to choose,
who's born to sing the blues?

but I wouldn't want
to be somebody's accident
like some small part of
some sad lover's happiness
well, I know it's wrong,
that we've come undone,
I'm sorry

    General CommentAww, this song sounds like it's about getting close to someone in a failing relationship, but not wanting to be the "accident" that leads to its breakup. They clearly like each other, but he doesn't want her to cheat on her lover with him.
