Got a criminal record, I can't cross state lines
First on the bad list and you're last on mine
Looking for a scapegoat, long past due
Walking down the aisle, staring straight at you

I still hear him screaming, "Where do I hide?"
And now he asks, I say, hurry inside

He said, she said, no, she don't
Be back before morning and you know she won't
Well, I remember that summer like yesterday
And I remember his mother, as he was dragged away

I still hear him screaming, "Where do I hide?"
And now he asks, I say, hurry inside
A whole lot of memory, yours and not mine
And now he asks and I say, hurry inside

Got a criminal record, I can't cross state lines
First on the bad list and you're last on mine
Looking for a scapegoat, long past due
Walking down the aisle, staring straight at you

I still hear him screaming, "Where do I hide?"
And now he asks, I say, hurry inside
A whole lot of memory, yours and not mine
And now he asks and I say, hurry inside
Where do I hide?

    This song is about loving someone who doesnt love you back. He keeps waiting for her to come and comfort him, but she never comes and he is tired of waiting for her to come.

    It is awesome for about the first minute and a half of the song, but then it gets boring and repetitive.

    Almost got it, Russian Leprechaun, but not quite. Yes, he did love this girl, but she loved him back at least for a while. Then she starts having second thoughts, and he says, here I stand, here I am, saying that he knows how he feels. "So where the hell are you?" doesn't literally mean that he's wondering where she is...he's saying I know where I stand in this relationship, now where do you stand? Finally, sick of holding on to false hopes, he says, I'm tired of needing you, and he decides to move on.

    This song is amazingggg. this is my fav song off of Curb. It's so raw and awesome. It's about how he's not sure where she is in their relationship.

    I know this is a song that was released 28 years ago and not a popular song from The Curb, but the lyrics are from the wrong song.
