Let's have a duel, I've got a sword
You can use it if you want, I would rather use my words
It's not you heart I wanna pierce, it's hers
You can stab mine many times, I don't think that it could hurt
She gave you a book, I gave her a song
This might have been my first mistake, this might have been where I went wrong
But I'd saw her long ago and she has never left my mind
I went to sleep on someone's floor, wrote a letter to her that night
That I wouldn't give to her until the day that our first grandchild is born
And on that day of sunshine I will know for sure
We'll take the dogs out for a walk, we'll fall to slumber on the grass
And we will make the clouds explode when they try to pass
And every song I write from today until the day I die
Will be words for her and will always make me cry
I'm sorry, my friend, for the evil that I have done
I'd hope you can forgive me and someday you find love
The first time that I met you, you put headphones on my ears
You said there was a song that I just had to hear
And even though the encounter was really rather weird
I listened to the song, then I asked what did I hear
You looked surprised that I didn't know and you told me it was Radiohead
I felt that I should be honest and said that I was not impressed
You've been a friend of mine ever since
I hope this doesn't change that, 'cause you're a friend I'd miss
You are Napoleon and this is Waterloo
And I'm sorry, my dear, but this is somethin' that I must do
You are Napoleon and this is Waterloo
And I'm sorry, my dear, but this is somethin' that I must do
