And I'm Not Being Sarcastic


I could swear I seen you

__at Berkeley Bowl

While I baught a red B.A.R.T. ticket

You had a hat on

__vey cool

Not sayin' a word

__'cause I was rude

Calling some other girl

A "slut and a half"

Well, she had earphones too

What she could not hear

__would not hurt her

I guessed

But you just decided to ighnore me

What a laugh from the devil

Put on noise

Put me out

Place me out of ev'ry heart

Place me out of time

Runnin' 'round, I'm runnin' rounds

Taking nobodies lives

Still I set my own heart on fire

With guilt you gave me to feel

Not a "how-you-been?"

It's not right

But it was perfexct anyways

In the way that you're fucking

__some other guy

You're full of it

You can't hide the truth from me

We did not match

You match with him

You're too young

For an old man's heart

I'm too old

To just have fun

But you were a growing


You were just an experience

And so was I

We used eachother

We knew eachother too
