Lyrics

April 22, 2002

You like me
I like you
And we're lying beneath the sun

The words that you told me have become
A dagger in my back
And the battle is all but won
Cry for the victor, 'cuz she's done

Taking off your clothes was all that you could do
To hurt me back so bad when I was hurting you

A dagger in my back
And the battle is all but won
I like you and we're lying beneath the sun

July 2, 2002

Do you see the good times
And the positive plans we made?
We had a connection that I'll crave
When I felt cold and blue
You could turn it into a smile
Bleak pessimism was our style

Now you're bent on doing all that you can do
To hurt me back so bad while I am hurting you

It's all a man can endure
And project the smartest move
So we jump and we stretch
But we can't see out of our moods
Whoa--oh

July 16, 2002

Remember the good times
And the laughing plans we made?
We had a connection that I'll crave
When I felt cold and blue
You could turn it into a smile
Bleak pessimism was our style

Taking off your clothes is all that you can do
To hurt me back so bad while I am hurting you

It's all a man will observe
And project the smartest moves
So we jump and we stretch
But we can't see above our moods
Whoa--oh
