lyrics

No One Wins

It’s a lose/lose situation no one wins
When the post project analysis begins
And there’s no use trying to audit all our sins
The only truth is what we meant
But was it all an accident?
Was it all an accident?

I lunged, I gripped, I squeezed, I slipped
You fell away
I swear I didn’t mean it
I dived, I strived, I promise you I tried
You fell away
I swear I didn’t mean it
But lately I’ve been thinking that I did

Our intimacy just got in the way
All those honest cruel confessions
Whispered in the old days
The revelations, instigations
Forgiven not forgotten
One real truth: our intent
It wasn’t all an accident

I lunged, I gripped, I squeezed, I slipped
You fell away
I swear I didn’t mean it
I dived, I strived, I promise you I tried
You fell away
I swear I didn’t mean it
But lately I’ve been thinking that I did

It promises to be as handsome as the man himself. He may have written his own bio. ... more
