    You own this


An oldie but...


You never left me when you should have
When you couldn't trust a word I'd say
Now I finally got it all together
Naturally it's now you walk away

I found some old shopping list you wrote me
For milk and bread and what's the use
Saw you addressed it "my darling"
No, I'm OK, I can stop shivering
Any time I choose

And it just takes one thought to send me reeling
One word to knock me on my back
One memory and I can't shake the feeling
I may never get myself back on track

It's been seven hundred years since you walked away
That's a month or a year or something in real time
I've heard all those soothing cliches
But the whole that you left
You left for a lifetime


It's the simple things that do you in
Like making a bed that's half-untouched
Letting you go would be so easy
But what do I do with the pictures?
And why are they playing our song?
All these things bring you back
In one unbearable rush



from Live at the Square Vol II, track released January 1, 1993
