Anita, it's time for me to go
Anita, it's time for me to go

"Anita, do you recall
How I loved you then?"
"You never loved me at all"
"Oh, of course I did"
"No"
"You know I did"

I need a basement for my thoughts
I need a convent on my block

I need wounds bound, my lady
And if you must know
I'm going home, I'm going home
I'm going
I'm going

Oh, where have you been
When I need friends?
Now I need some place to hang my head

I need some place to hang my head
I need some place to hang my head

    General CommentAnita... that's my girlfriend's name.
    She broke up with me after two years... it is sad... like this song. This song is pretty... unlike the break-up.
    Anita... that's a beautiful name... beautiful like her. Sigh... I miss my girlfriend dearly... :(

    General CommentI like how when he sings this "I need a" sounds like "Anita"

    I wonder if this was a coincidence or if the two mean the same?
