Someone standing alone on a hill
I think you're sinking, can't swim or sit still
Still he's waiting there alone
He's drowning on his own

The fool who fell in love left his heart right in the sink
She tore it all to pieces when he left it there
The fool who fell in love let his heart wash down the drain
She threw away the pieces when he left it there

Talkin' to myself
Fallin' from the shelf

Still I wonder why I ever let myself take my own advice
Still I wonder why I ever let myself Take my own advice

Still he's waiting, a man on a hill
I think he's drifting, to float on the wind
Must be a fool to think he could
Bring him back to her

A fool who fell in love left his heart right in the sink
She tore it all to pieces when he left it there
A fool who fell in love let his heart wash down the drain
She threw away the pieces when he left it there

Talkin' to myself
Fallin' from the shelf

Still I wonder why I ever let myself take my own advice
Still I wonder why I ever let myself Take my own advice
Still I wonder why I ever let myself Take my own advice

    General Commenthey you bastards that come to STP's page and dont say something about this song! STP has a shit load of comments on their songs but not this song why do people pass it by?
    well it is a rare track that only true STP fans would know so congrats if you clicked on this song your probaly a hardcore STP fan

    anyways as for the song the meanings is pretty obvious and depressing... IMO their best unreleased track

    General Commenti believe this song was written during the No. 4 era... i think its about how scott felt during his divorce with his first wife
