The wind brushes you backwards
after 20 years you had hoped it would
Is it too late now or is it only getting dark out?

You say her name like one would (Evan!)
Read the Bible each night before drifting off to sleep--
To spring you heavenward

But what is it about her
that makes all your synapses go crazy inside your brain?
What is it that makes you complain to me?

You should be warned, flowers will change
And girls befriend snakes when they want their way
You should be told of Adam and Eve,
A girl will deceive if you give her and apple

Keep in mind like heavy drinks
She's hard to keep down
Will you regret saying it too much to her tonight?

When you wake up in shame, sweat beating off of your face,
Your stomach out of place, feel the cold tiles of the bathroom floor...

Could you want it anymore?
Could you want it anymore?
Could you want it anymore?
Could you want it anymore?
Could you want her anymore....?

    General CommentIs it "anymore" or "any more"? 'Cause there is a difference. I know I'm being kind of nit-picky but there it is.

    General Commentgood point.

    well, these were taken off the website, so i'm guessing they do mean "anymore".

    General CommentI love this song. I love the whole album.

    When I listened to it first, I thought it was "anymore", and it made more sense to me at first. But I think it could also make sense as "any more." Since the song talks about how the guy "wakes up in shame" and such, maybe she is asking whether he could ever want her again, and whether this experience has made him look at her (and "it") differently.
