well baby, did our sky fall down?
and no one wants, no one wants, no one wants to rebuild it now
we once drew a crowd
with my evil eye
and your crazy mouth
let's get over each other
let's get over each other

but baby, did our time run out?
and no one wants, no one wants, no one wants to refill it now
i liked it best how
we took the whole world on, back to back
long knives drawn

let's get over each other
let's get over each other
so that we can fall in love again
so that we can fall in love again
won't you ho-ho-hold me
ho-ho-hold me
make believe that
you don't loathe me

well baby, did our sky fall down?
and no one wants, no one wants, no one wants to rebuild it now
but I liked it best how
we took the whole world on, back to back
long knives drawn

let's get over each other
let's get over each other
so that we can fall in love again
so that we can fall in love again
won't you ho-ho-hold me
ho-ho-hold me
make believe that
you don't loathe me

am I mistaken
when I woke up this morning
without you there I'm shaken
to the very foundation
once there was something
and now there's just a piece of atmosphere

am I mistaken
when I woke up this morning
without you there
I'm shaken to the very foundation

    General Commentpossibly my all time fav rm song.
    why is no one commenting on it?!

    well, i love the vivid imagery and cutting honesty in this song:
    "well baby, did our sky fall down?/and no one wants,no one wants,/no one wants to rebuild it now/we once drew a crowd/with my evil eye
    and your crazy mouth.."
    or
    "well baby, did our sky fall down?/and no one wants, no one wants,/no one wants to rebuild it now/but I liked it best how/we took the whole world on, back to back/long knives drawn.."

    and the loss is just so honsest and cleverly worded:
    "am I mistaken/when I woke up this morning /without you there I'm shaken/to the very foundation/once there was something/and now there's just a piece of atmosphere..."

    General CommentI love the ENERGY in this tune--both the music and the message.

    To me, here's the message: sure, our relationship is messed up--hell, WE'RE messed up. But let's stay together and we'll take "the whole world on, back to back, long knives drawn" just like we used to.

    And it's especially cool hearing a woman singing on a track like this.
