on the right bank of the East River
sittin' on torn concrete

shaking hands and empty fingers

and I know it
won't mean anything

if indeed this was like a first marriage

then you and I together
can be like
divorcees

I don't need to talk about it

and I don't know
to anything yet

so you can take what's on the table
when you go
you go for everything

and if indeed this was like a first marriage

then you and I together
can be like
divorcees

    General Commentwhat a depressing way to end the album. its such a beautiful song though.

    the end of a relationship and the feelings that come along with it. she compares the end of their first serious relationship to a divorce. she feels empty and doesnt want to know anything and knows that when he goes... he goes for everything and isnt coming back.

    she describes that terrible blah feeling of not feeling and not knowing after a break up.
