I met her out walking
Lost in conversation with her
She forgot nothing, but where I was
To let me by easy
She paused with a wink, a nod and a smile
I called her not to miss her
At least not for a little while

And one day, you'll find
I got just what I wanted here
In empty books and the baby books
With the names of the girls with the dull embrace

Hey hello, how are you?
Didn't we meet at a costume ball?
She laughed, no it's different with what's not
A dark alley pissing on a wall
That's when I knew, or meant to call

And one day you'll find
I got just what I wanted here
[?] and the vacant look
Of the girls who just enjoy the chase

And so I talked to no one else
My premonitions come and gone
Everything you know is wrong, she said
I know you know you're wrong, she said
Let's go, I know the way to go
Within, without
You're so lucky to let this out

And one day you'll find
I got just what I wanted here
A cracked [?] on the highest roof
Straining out at the girls I can't disgrace

I love you, I slipped, and she began to come
She caught me watching, said I'm never fun
Couldn't even tell me what you want
She wanted what she wanted and I felt caught

I know I know you
From somehwere
Maybe I saw you kicking a can
Pleading with the goddess to undersatnd
But they're all boys and you're a man, I'm sure
You begged them all to stop
Staring at your new stopwatch

And one day I'll find
I got just what I wanted here
A dull glare with the never-there
Of a girl with her gravity misplaced

She spoke in the lilt of insatiable chase
All day glory and cruel face
All bitter rhymes I can't replace, not now
And everyone I take
To my disdain her apathy hurt
And I was only trying to flirt
Little still known of my fate
The oracle hung around like dead weight

And one day you'll all find
We get what just we wanted here
Broken arms and some timeless charms
Of a jewel gone straight as [?]

So now it's time for questions
It's no answers, and all smiles
Pleasing and amusing as I
Please for a little while, she said
Let's go for a walk, or picture show
One wish, honest
To wipe away the loneliness

I stood by the river to take her in
She cursed out loud and pushed me in
Now let's see if you'll sink or swim
I'll do what she can't do for them
I'll take through all I've been
The rumors and the lies and the bullshit
We'll wash away all our sin and grit
Yours without and mine shoved in forever, and ever
Always there, forever, and ever

And one day, I'll find
She got just what she wanted here
The lazy looks and the things I took
From the ones who can't escape with grace

Tied to a tree trying to kiss a [?]
Tried to cry inside that soul
She turned her face as if to go [?]
And nowhere else to go
I know I love you
As simple as I'm sweet
She hissed, you know you know no love does not
repeat and repeat and repeat and repeat
and repeat and repeat and repeat and repeat
and repeat and repeat and repeat and repeat
and repeat and repeat and repeat and repeat

And one day she'll find
I got just what I wanted here
One touch for a little while
From a girl who can't [?]

I am the girl of the bitter embrace
I am the girl you'll forever chase
With your lights burning and eyes of hate
I'm pulling you up and out to face
What do you need, you don't even know
A sad lone [?] standing in the shallow [?]
Waiting for you to come

You got it all wrong
I said it all for you
I see what you mean and I hear what you hear
There is division in all there is at stake
But look at the beautiful crest of the wave I create

Maybe some day I will tell the truth
When I find someone who wants the truth
And maybe some day I will tell the truth
When I find someone who wnats the truth

And one day I'll find
I got just what I wanted here
A lonely place with my mind away
Against the girl with the girl with the cruel face

Hey look out there goes the girl
Who watched me diving for my pearls
Hey look out there goes the girl
A woman who watched me dive for my pearls

One kiss, honest
I thought I said I wanted this
One kiss, honest
I said I thought I wanted this
