How could she ever leave you
You loved her so much
You had it made, how could it be true
You see her on the street, it's
How are you - so long I gotta go
See you real soon
She's just a faded picture
She's just a private wince
But then you start to miss her
Maybe you'll write her a letter
Resolved - nothing to it - tomorrow

You say you want her back but
You know that's all wrong
Make up your mind, you're see-through
And so you call her up
Say what's up and blah blah
How have you been, I never see you
Yeah she was sticky sweet
You served her on a platter
You two were nude prolific
But still now you should know better
Don't do it - think again - remember

But you've got nothing better
She ain't got no one
You tell her you still love her
She says "me too"
So you get back together
So on and so on
But there's just a stump where the tree grew
She can't except the changes
She wants the same old stumps
You say she thinks too much
That she's been over-protected
Admit it - wrong again - all that time - that's it - it's finished

Well now you've found another
You've dug a new whole
Forget the old - you feel new
That was another movie
You've got another role
You play yourself, yeah, it's the real you
She want's to know your past
She says it doesn't matter
You start to tell the whole truth
But then you smile and reject it
You got her - she's the first - forever
