A song about a love affair gone terribly, terribly wrong


It's been a long long time since the tide brought me more
Of those dreams where your eyes could see all through my pores
It's been a longer time still since I knocked on your door and you answered, smile wide, 'come and knock me over'
And it's the law man
And there'll be no more comin on the one shore
Oh man
Since we lit that fire and the brush caught under
And your brother got mad and he drew his thunder
And the cops caught bad found him drunk asunder
And they beat him down on the shore

And I remember how you looked with the bees buzzin round you
Suited up, laughin loud, high as a ball
And then you threw the hive up and it landed and sounded
Like a gunshot in your brother's truck aw
And we were gone, yeah
And he was bein bit up like chemical warfare
Aw man
He was allergic as could be but we were too high too care
Ran into the hills, sunlight, and your hair
Made love all night like chemical warfare
And the cops woke us up at dawn

Oh the things in your life that you do when you're runnin
From the waves beatin on, on the one shore
And I blamed everything that we did that summer on you, under lights,
And I made up some more

I was lyin man
And they locked you up tight for the crimes that we blundered
Oh man
I never meant to hurt a soul, but I'm a stumbler
And I keep lovin you like I'm dyin of hunger
As I sit up and night and I sometimes wonder
If you'll ever take me back at all
Oh won't you ever take me back at all?

Oh won't you take me back?
Oh won't you take me back?
My darlin girl
