lyrics

You were right of course
‘bout those bruises on my neck
And shoulders

The punch was hard
The light went dark
I heard you scream
“Well I told you”

And who was she playing?
When I got kissed, Barry White
When I got hit, some other shit
Oh what does it matter?

Missed her by an instant
The gulf of kids next door
She’s driver’s side with the New York Plates
But they don’t suit her anymore

So was it the car I borrowed
Or the phone call days before
That got me to her bedroom
Her lipstick on our faces

I had debts to pay
Yeah, some of us owe more than others
Not in gold or silver

In fish we thought were caught
With the lines we thought pulled taught
Oh but who can remember
Now?

Cherry changed her name to
Chardonnay
I liked the label better anyway

I swear that she doesn’t matter
To me

Missed her by an instant
The gulf of kids next door
She’s driver’s side with the New York Plates
But they don’t suit her anymore

So was it the car I borrowed
Or the phone call days before
That got me to her bedroom

Missed her by an instant
