i drove my car through a soot black night
the radio was playin' something trite
i put my hair in a sultry pose
a veil of powder lay upon her nose
but what was that look you had upon your face?
he said i'll meet you in the same old place
her eyes were glassy and her lips expressed
and air of cultivated confidence

and i said
that all i ever really wanted from you
something to show that what i felt was true
something to show that maybe love was real
a sorry end to a lovely beginning

i asked you why you never treat me right
after she punched me in the face that night
i guess you're lucky that i couldn't punch
i little fist thing didn't hurt that much
still when she kicked it took me by surprise
i grabbed the wheel as if to make us crash
i said don't fuck around why we drive
you held me tight to make me stop at last

and she said
that all i ever really wanted from you
something to show that what i felt
something to show that maybe love was winning
and why's it ending when it should be beginning?

so tell me do you love this girl?
i said i guess and saw her fingers curl
the day had once again dissolved the night
she said at least then will you treat her right
was it a blessing or was it a curse?
her eyes were squinted and her lips were pursed
i guess i won't see you for a while
so just don't call in your usual style

and she said
that all i ever really wanted from you
something to show that maybe love was true
something to show that maybe love was winning
and why's it ending when it should be beginning?

that all i ever really wanted from you
something to show that what i felt was true
something to show that maybe love was winning
and why's it ending when it should be beginning?
