In her heart I think she'd like me dead
Second best she sleeps with me instead
I gave her all her books and records back,
Roy Orbison, Burt Bacharach and Kerouac in paperback,
West Side Story soundtrack
The wind blew off the mountain all night long
I sat up 'til daybreak working on this song
And then I turned and saw her standing there
In pale blue silk underwear, a butterfly in her hair

I said yeah, I said, yeah

She said I spoiled the silence in her dream
But it was like the silence that follows a scream
So shoulders hunched against the sleet,
She moves on down Jamaica Street with no word of farewell
Aww, hell, goodbye then, Isabel
