Lyrics

YOU'RE EAST OF ALVARADO IN YOUR HAIRCUT
BLAME SOMEBODY ELSE FOR YOUR MOOD
THE STREET HERE IS AS BROKEN AS THE PROMISE
YOU MADE YOURSELF YOU WOULDN'T COME UNGLUED

EVERY MAN IN A CAR ALONE OFFERS YOU A RIDE
IT SEEMS YOU LOOK AS DESPERATE AS YOU FEEL
A WOMAN BY HERSELF CAN MAKE IT WITHOUT HELP
YOU SONS OF BITCHES REALLY ARE UNREAL

THE THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT CAN KILL YOU
MEET THEM WELL PREPARED
THAT PAYPHONE IS A VESTIGE, A REMINDER
YOU COULDN'T CALL EVEN IF YOU DARED

THAT DRESS WASN'T MEANT TO BE WORN
FOR TWELVE STRAIGHT HOURS
ON INTO THE MORN
WHY'S THE SUN IN SUCH A HURRY
WHY'S THE SUN IN SUCH A RUSH

YOU KNEW SHE AND HER PHONE WOULD BOTH BE OUT OF JUICE
HER MESSAGE SHOULDN'T COME AS A SURPRISE
YOUR IMAGINATION IS TOO VIVID
AND JUST AS ACTIVE AS SHE IS WITH OTHER GUYS

REVENGE WAS NEVER REALLY YOUR INTENTION
A VAGUE, CARELESS CRUELTY WAS
CONSTANCY AND MANSUETUDE THEY DON'T MAKE THE CUT
IGNORING HER FOR THIRTEEN HOURS DOES

SO NOW THAT YOU'RE NO LONGER SO DEVOTED
LET HER FADE BACK INTO THE CROWD
THERE IS NOTHING THAT YOU REGRET PER SE
NOR ANYTHING OF WHICH YOU CAN BE PROUD

THAT DRESS WASN'T MEANT TO BE WORN
FOR ANYONE ELSE NOW IT'S SOILED AND TORN
WISE THE MAN WHO DOESN'T WORRY
WISE THE MAN WHO DOESN'T BLUSH
