Got an old Smiths' record
and I put it on endlessly.
To mourn a lethal fascination
with a girl named Valerie.

She got a XXX rating
and maybe someday she'd have married me.
But, she was born to keep me waiting.
Her name was Valerie.

With a little more time, I was thinking
we could've worked my hooks into you.

Over a recent complication
I came to find that she'd tired of me.
She wrote the book of Revelations.
Her name was Valerie.

With a little more time, I was thinking
we could've worked my life around you.
With a little more time...

    GotR is so awesome it's hard to believe they don't have that bg of a fanbase out there, looking forward to seeing them at the Knitting Factory.

    Too bad they don't play the Knitting Factory in NYC. I already wrote them an email saying that though lol.

    This my favorite song by them. I also like their cover of "come as you are" by Nirvana.
