i pulled out a chair
and casual conversation turns to things i only dare to say
you don't seem to mind
until you realize why
the moment i thought that i might find comfort in your arms tonight
at least for a while

i meant to ask for just a picture
so i could remember
your shape, your face, and how we layed there
'til five that day
i want to remember
your shape sometimes and how we layed there

we haven't much time
the sun will be smiling on the walls
before you realize where this night has gone
so what's on your mind?
i could be your last mistake before you are a trophy wife
to a debutante's son

i meant to ask for just a picture
so i could remember
your shape, your face, and how we layed there
'til five that day
i want to remember
your shape sometimes and how we layed there

    General CommentI just want y'all to know, that I am completely unsure about the accuracy of these lyrics. Don't bet more than $5 on their correctness.

    General CommentHey Meggy, Great job on the lyrics....the only thing I would say differently is (and I could be wrong even as many times as I've heard them) the line "and how we layed there 'TILL FIVE that day". But you'd have to ask Jonathon to be 100% sure. Thats cool see their lyrics up!!!

    Peace

    General Commenti agree with the till 5 thing....
    but also, the lyrics can go... "you shaved your face and howie laid there..."
