There was one thing
I found that I couldn't help thinking
As they pried me
Free with the jaws of life
None of this dis-
Aster would ever have happened
If I had not
Been driving my neighbor's wife

To the Alta Loma Day's Inn
Where I'd registered us as
A couple with a name I'm sure
Some other couple somewhere has

And the last thing
I saw before falling unconscious
Was your right hand
Tracing a heart on my thigh
And I thought "My
God, what an infantile gesture,"
And I thought "My God, what
An indescribable high."

The autumn air was sweeter
Than a slice of wedding cake
As I overshot the exit
And I tried and failed to find the brake...

    General Commentapologies for the missing lyrics, but the guitar feedback made it hard to hear.
