lyrics

Do you remember what you said?
You told me to come rest,
At the foot of your bed

And you told me stories
About how it was
When we were young.

And you reminded
Of someone that I met
When I was seventeen

And when we first met
I almost lost my breath
When he told me, so sweet

He said darling run away
Don't you know I'll break your heart?

Don't you know,
Our love was tainted from the start?

And you told me once more
You'd get out of the rut
That your family had cause

Cause the the life that they'd made
Was beautiful and true
But was lacking in funds

So I waited by your door
While you said goodbye
Then you left and we drove away

And now I'm naked by your side
While you lay your hand
Consoling my pride

You said, darling run away
Don't you know I'll break your heart?

Don't you know,
Our love was was tainted from the start?
