Once on the knees
and once on the toes.
If this is addiction,
I don’t want to know.
And I know all the words to what you said were your favorite songs.
I sit outside your house late at night to watch the lights go off.

Oh, why didn’t you see this coming?
Oh, why couldn’t you see this coming?

A knee in the gut, a boot in the eye.
If this compulsion, I’m changing my mind.

Cold and wet in a ditch by the side of the road somewhere,
lie all of my dreams for you and me.
I didn’t have to call, I could have left you there.
You don’t know how hard it is not to see you.
And I know that you’ve made up your mind and
I know I can change it. And if not me,
then my car, my vicious dog, a fire, my homemade drugs,
a well-timed appearance in your rear-view mirror.
I’ve all the time in the world.
I’ve got all the time in the world.
All the time, all the time.

My car, my vicious dog, a fire, my homemade drugs,
a well-timed appearance in your rear-view mirror.
Oh, why couldn’t you see this coming?
