lyrics

Her 23rd birthday she was drunk
and they'd been friends since they grew up.
Next morning he said it all felt right,
he'd been waiting his whole life.
He said her eyes were like black holes,
they sucked in his heart and his soul.
Maybe he was always high or drunk,
but he seemed sincere when he spoke.

How could someone who sings all those heartfelt songs
ever do any wrong?

Soaked in rain she ran to his door,
shaking and paler than her robe.
Before she said the words he knew,
two little lines, baby blue.
Of all the times that those brown eyes
sucked him in he never thought he'd die.
He poured coffee and they sat in quiet,
his father's rifle flashed in his mind.

How could someone who sings all those heartfelt songs
ever do any wrong?

Now she's invisible,
he's doin' fine.
Who really cares?
They're a dozen for a dime.
