I remember I first made your acquaintance
It was a sticky summer night
You put my handshake into your pocket until the situation was right

Many more have done it before you and many more will do it again
Spend half your life in a textbook and the other half with with your friends

Many more have done it before you and many more will never calm down
You spend half your life in the suburbs and the other half on the town

O my God you don't know when to leave you owe your god
O my God if you don't know when to quit you owe your god

I remember when I first wandered your highways
I was sleeping through the sights
I through my money away on your truck-stops in the middle of the night

When the cynical become the believers
Will the believers just take flight
And sit smoking around their campfires singing dylan songs all night?

O my God you don't know when to leave you owe your god
O my God if you don't know when to quit you owe your god

When cupid first stuck me with arrows it put the wind back in my sails
It scared the shit out of my parents they'd never seen their boy so impaled

I still remember when I first met you it was a sunny afternoon
I put your brown eyes into my suitcase
I knew they'd be looking back at me soon

O my God you don't know when to leave you owe your god
O my God if you don't know when to quit you owe your god
