lyrics

With the back of my hand on your cheek let me speak oh fair maiden. If a gallant young man took your hand while I slept well I'd never sleep again, I said. And I haven't slept since then. You know my name, you stole my girl, but I love you just the same. Well who cares, so I pushed myself back down the stairs. And although, I hit my head on the stairs below I know, I will climb back up again. By the bye. I'm going to need a long time, long enough to hang my self. Stretch it out unwind. Do whatever helps. Mark it in your daily planner, in your diary before you go to bed, that long ago when you were older, you knew my name, you stole my girl, but I love you just the same. But I love you just the same. By the bye. For crying out loud I'm loosing faces. I'm cruising for a bruising and I'm loosing faces. I've got a taste for blood on my lips, stench in my nostrils, and you. But you said who cares. So I pushed myself back down the stairs. And although, I hit my head on the stairs below I know, I will climb back up again. By the bye. Like the carpetbagger in my bed, while I'm still on the linoleum floor. I told him I was getting off at the next stop, but he didn't move so I had to stay on till we made it downtown made a loop and turned around. So I said fellow, you know my name, you stole my girl, but I love you just the same. He said who cares. So I pushed myself back down the stairs. And although, I hit my head on the stairs below I know, I will climb back up again. But I'm going to need a long time, long enough to hang my self. Stretch it out unwind. What ever makes you happy. By the bye.
