I met a girl from Brownsville
She a kamikaze head-turn got me into a frill
And I told her about my friends back home what they'd say

How she spoke

Lasting words in the lasting night
And every time I see a boat by a lake
I want to jump up and say
Let's row away from everything

Said she was a cutter
And well I, I said my dad's a preacher man, he could
Well, I took her to the boat out down by the lake

Well, she spoke

Lasting words in this lasting night
And every time I see a boat by a lake
I want to jump up and say
Let's row away from everything

I kindly took her by the hand, oh I
Just to make her understand it all
And I took her to the boat out down by the lake

And just when everything was said, you see I
I hugged her hard around her head, and then I
I told her there are things that we shouldn't say

Now watch me say and she spoke

Lasting words in this lasting night
And every time I see a boat by a lake
I want to jump up and say
Let's row away from everything she spoke

Lasting words
In this lasting night
I tore her, tore her, tore her down
I tore her down today

Lasting words
Lasting words
I tore her, tore her, tore her down
I tore her down today

And everything just goes away, no no no
But the scars you hide today
I didn't want to say
I didn't want to say
Everything just goes away
Everything just goes away

I met a girl from Brownsville
She a kamikaze head-turn got me into a frill

Lasting words in the lasting night
And every time I see a boat by a lake
I want to jump up and say
Let's row away from everything she spoke

Lasting words
In the lasting night
I tore her, tore her, tore her down
I tore her down today

I met a girl from Brownsville
She a kamikaze head-turn got me into a frill

Lasting words
Lasting words
I tore her, tore her, tore her down
I tore her down today

Lasting words in the lasting night
And every time I see a boat by a lake
I want to jump up and say
