Sarah’s calling from a hotel
That was built into a mountain.
There were diamonds in the fountain.
She said that she was happy.

Hadn’t seen her since the races
At the ending of last summer.
We watched the horses run up
on each other.
She looked pretty.

She said lately she’s been thinking.
She’s sorr y she was ruthless at the ending.
But her new friend does much better
Than just get by.

The last thing she said to me
Before she hung up the phone was
Here he comes.
Oh God. I gotta go.

Ever y time you take a lover
You trade one thing for another.
We hadn’t spoken in a year and
I’m not sure why she called.

The last thing she said to me
Before she hung up the phone was
Here he comes.
Oh God, I gotta go.
Here he comes. He’s got a gun.

I heard that she cleaned up
Then I also heard she didn’t.
Sarah says he’s got some money.
But Jenny says it’s spent.
She says she knows that he’s not perfect
But when you add it all up then it’s worth it.

She said she was sorr y at the ending
She was lazy with her lies
But she was sick of scrounging around
Just barely getting by.

The last thing she said to me
Before she hung up the phone was
Here he comes. Oh God.
I gotta go.
Here he comes. He’s got a gun.
I gotta go.
