Well, after I ate I went outside
To catch some air
And to walk off my drink

And I rolled tobacco
And watched as the smoke rolled
And magically like you left me

And I made a firm fist and,
Pissed, thought it brilliant
To throw my hand into the door

I knew I would have to
Admit that I was wrong
I decided to talk no more

Anna, no.
What an embarrassing way to go.

If you wrote a list
Of the times I considered
To swim in my heavenly home

And God and His angels
Are all under water
And callin' my name once for all

Oh and I had this hat
That I lost in September
I miss you less than that, you know

Oh how can a man
Seek revenge on a woman
He wants to believe has no soul
No home.

Anna, no.
What an embarrassing way to go

    General CommentI keep vacillating between whose is the "embarrassing" one; him or her. And by going... are we still on the suicide theme, as in "go"; or is it her leaving him for his brother the going, or "go" as in "we're going in this direction" go. Like, how could it have gone this way, and everyone sees it? Yeah, I'm way too much of an English teacher, and I realize that a simple two letter word can have some many meanings! Any thoughts???
