See the same old crowd again
Wash my hands and shake my feet,
And yes I missed you all,
Since I last saw you I fell down the rabbit hole

As I wonder what we'd be like
Wrapped up, so up tight with you
Lust will do funny things,
I don't want you to go out looking so good
And you look so good...

Rosie.
Well I feel your love and I want you to agree,
To be,
Till take your time but get to me
Rosie

She looked away as I mentioned my name
Street lights light up my shame
The world can take you and swallow you whole
But you're a big girl and I think that you already know,
You've been bought and sold.

Be careful with me
See that all that you see
Troy died in a day for little Rosie

Rosie.
Well, I feel your love and I want you to agree,
To be,
Still take your time roll your stone to me
Rosie

Gonna find you now I'll walk the beat
And you'll do me a pirouette in the street
And although we'll fall we'll find our feet
Rosie

Well, I wanted you so easily
Illusions passed and now I see,
An image is so different to reality
Rosie, Rosie

    I wonder if my x-boyfriend has read these lyrics... There's no telling if he's ever gonna find me now - beginning to think he's never going to keep his promise and stay up north forever/, then again he prolly doesn't care anymore seeing as how i've been invisible for so long now.

    It is a retaliation-type song. She hurt him, he hurt her and he did something he's ashamed of... But in the end he has a view of the person not the image of her... He's also clearly warning her that he is going to try to make her suffer for what she did, because it cost him dearly. But he wants her.
