We met on an evening such as this, such bliss
Leading you home past the fountain where I made my wish
Granted so soon by the step which helped align our lips
But with these words by a day I did forestall that kiss

"Please consider my chariot, the shotgun seat is free
The radio reads kilohertz, but girl that's all we'll need
The taillight's busted, the fender's rusted, the gears they number three
But though this carriage is old it's built to last just wait and see"

And you then became to my surprise, my prize
And for a while we then tried each other on for size
And then the moon, and the sun, the trees, the air, the skies
The world entire, given life anew seen through your eyes

So tell me truly now Judas, Jesus which one do I see?
Cause though we've conjured a thousand children you're still news to me
You showed me all the vicissitudes you'd hidden lock and key
But still this puzzle is missing one important corner piece

So when you pasted all our photos in a birthday card collage
Well I'm sure you had your reasons but you only broke my heart
Oh and when our palms were pressing you gave me quite a start
Could you feel my heart confessing to the way it fell apart?
And then you drew a rainbow in the frost from words we spoke
And although I couldn't say so, my heart it swiftly broke
And then you danced the can can just to bring my face a smile
But my heart it had its own damn plans and was breaking all the while

Cause you keep ringing my bell
But I just can't tell
For whom'd you aim that spell?

And you'll be blowin' my mind
But often I find
You're not even tryin'

So keep on rockin' my world
With every twirl
You maniac girl

And I'll keep saving my cents
And some season hence
I'll swing for the fence

And when you look at my librettos and declare, "Such rain, such clouds"
I'll reply, "Well I just like sad songs, but I like to play them loud"
