Thought I was strong, turned out I was wrong, I lost a friend, three on a match again.
Three on a match again, looks like I lost a friend; I'll never go three on a match again.
(Yeah)
Three on a match again, looks like I lost a friend; I'll never go three on a match again.
When we were young, and glitter rock was done, we played guitars, small spiders from mars
Three on a match again, looks like I lost a friend; I'll never go three on a match again.
I'm drinkin hard cuz this ain't easy, wakin up with my best friend's girl
I want to go, I feel so sleazy is that what they said, what they said now
I feel this woman around me, to fill this empty need, but I know I've got to go
Hey baby with this book a matches strike one and burned all three
Well I know I've got to learn, please forgive me, please forgive me, please forgive me,
Please forgive me.

    General CommentI wish I understood this shit about matches. Things like devils on matchsticks or match heads. Perhaps this has something do with that or perhaps he's referring to... I don't know, cigarettes? One match, three cigarettes? I have no fucking idea, seriously. I need help here.

    General Comment'Three on a match', as I just learned last night, is an old superstition from WWI: it was said that if three soldiers lit their cigarettes with one match, one of them would die. So, obviously, it's considered to be bad luck to do so.
