the second of april 1998
was when they came and took him away
it was raining hard
secret service men were standing in the yard
she wiped the tears from her eyes
she knew this day would come

the sunday paper was scattered on the floor
near where the fbi had kicked in their door
he was gone without a single kiss goodbye
they'd finally caught up with her
international spy

    General CommentI especially enjoyed the "get-down!" background voice and the frank simplicity of the sadness presented in this song. I'd really like to know if Owen had made this story up or if this had really happened. Requesting background stories if you please!
