PreSales FundRaiser- Help Owning Class Hero Come Out
so what ever made you think i'd want to meet him
at least i had a good tree outside where i could lean
while you used the kitchen as your confessional
seeking absolution from our friends
after offering up your confusion and apologies to me

so you said i wasn't listening when
you said you were confused
you found the perfect illustration dear
gotta tip my hat to you

what did you expect as i stared at the leaves
trying to keep my knees from giving out
wondering what i'm supposed to do with that
i love you or any of those other words
that finally fell out of your mouth

so you said i wasn't listening when
you said you were confused
you found the perfect illustration dear
gotta tip my hat to you

you know it didn't help to hear that
everyone in the house was on my side
when i had to watch the one person
i had hoped would be at my side
take the hand of my replacement
and walk down the drive

don't know why you chose to end it
at the same place we started out
a couple years and a couple yards from
the place that we first kissed
or why you came to the party with your wrecking ball

so if you're looking for your penance
i just have the strings on my guitar
hon i haven't got a rosary
so you can say your hail larry's at the bedpost
while you're down there on your knees
you might find your absolution girl
but it won't be coming from me
