He's back our old dear friend
The crack of her whip won't be heard again
And so now we'll sing (sing)
To him and what he has been through


Back to where it all began
Back to where we used to stand
Back to the boys the benders all again
Back to drinking with his friends
Back to forgetting to ring them back
Back to laughing all about that
Back to taking your pride right off her shelf
Back to doing it yourself

When we're together we're still now still alone
Your woman is who you're with calling you on the phone
Excuses broad excuses you use to ease your mind
It didn't take long no it didn't take long to steal your mind

I remember when in 82 when we were half of ten
You didn't care about the pair you were fair now do it again
And now you're caught and now your mind is all forgot
She's packed your bags you're on the boat I'm watching from the dock


As the rope gets tighter as the rope takes another pull
I see your breath get shorter no more breath and now you fall
Long since long since the decision has been yours
It makes no sense the sense you make now who's it for

I know what you wanna be I know what you have to be
I know that when you chose this world your mind your time it can't be free
But I know yu feel the sting and I know just one more thing
Well now you're back and it's a fact so let's get up get up and sing. . .

    General CommentAfter a terrible break-up, this was the first song I was able to listen to without getting depressed. My favorite big d song maybe, this or Fatman. Alas, they won't do it live....

    General CommentThis song is about a guy named Nate and apparently it pissed him off a whole lot when he heard it. Heard this from the band in an interview.
