With the innocence of Laura Palmer
She said I made her feel like Dorothy Parker
People said she slept around
I guess that's what I thought I needed after you

Was it making love or just making trouble?
Was it music in my blood or just another bottle?
A streak of one-nighters, a night of one-liners
It's the work of getting over you I employ
Tonight I love everything that I do not destroy

And in the morning I asked where are you going?
And she said somewhere between freedom and homeless
Why you wanna slow the guillotine?
Because I like to take it slow, if you know what I mean

Trouble's in the place and it's got my face
Morrissey is singing meet you at the cemetery gates
And love is long gone but like that song
Don't pretend you were a good girl on the wrong end of a boy
Who loves everything that he does not destroy

There's a certainty to what's behind us
And the people that we let slip by
Whichever of us lives the longest
Gets to watch all of their best friends die
