Well I once knew a girl
Who hid her problems deep inside herself
Like little Russian dolls
And when I go to work she pulled them out
Gave them names and sewed them little clothes

When I throw little pebbles
At her window from the alley down below
When I get home
She tucked them all away
Pretend that everything was okay, okay, okay, ohhh

Oh because I
I can't say that it's her loss
'Cause she can't lose
Can't lose what she don't want

Oh I wish I wish
I had someone here to blame, blame, blame
Oh I wish I wish
That she wanted me the same
The same as I want her
The same as I want her
Oh I just wish
She wanted me the way I want her

Well I learned early on in an old western cowboy song
You can't choose your love
But you damn right know that you can take a chance
If your a gambling man

So we either put your lonely heart to rest
Chase the moon and shoot down the stars
Because it is true that nothing good will stay
That everything will be ok, ok, ok, ohhh

Because I
I can't say that it's her loss
Because she can't lose
Can't lose what she don't want

Oh I wish I wish
I had someone here to blame, blame, blame
Oh I wish I wish
That she wanted me the same
The same as I want her
The same as I love her

She taught me once
In a two week chase
It is not about your final resting place
You're rushing to this giant race
It is more about the trip you have take

Well things to see
The friends to make
The love to share
Their hearts to break
The roads to pave
Old castles to shake
Life is what happens while you are marking all dates
