You’ll be maybe lunging for the bad guy’s hip
No-one anticipates the sunset flip
The referee and your opponent will hold you there
And we’re going to bring in a folding chair

We’ll stipulate that there will be no cameras filming
But of course there will be several in the building
And if by chance somebody hits record
And stands real still somewhere back behind the soundboard

Cheap electric razor from the Thrifty down the street
Two guys down around your ankles so you’ll stay put in your seat
Buzzing razor held aloft and just about to strike
I loved you before I even ever knew what love was like

Some people leave before it’s over; most of them stay
Some hide behind their programs – some turn away
Out in the parking lot you look up at the stars
And all the cheap cars

    General CommentI always listen to this song and think of Up the Wolves, and JD's stepfather. It's a similar feeling (everyone will see you for what you really are).

    "I loved you before I even knew what love was like" is the line that makes me feel this most strongly. You can love someone who destroys you, especially if that is all you knew as a kid.
