Well, I think that there's a problem here
Her voice just don't sound right
But I left myself on her answering machine
Said "I'm back in town tonight"
I feel I've stepped out of the wilderness
All squint-eyed and confused
But even babies raised by wolves they know exactly when they've been used

See, when it starts to fall apart, man it really falls apart
Like boots or hearts oh when they start, they really fall apart

Fingers and toes, fingers and toes
Forty things we share
Forty-one if you include the fact that we don't care

Now you've blocked off most of mainstreet for your faith parade
Well everyone in town now they'd probably all agree I'm lying in the bed I made

See when it starts to fall apart, man, it really falls apart
Like boots or hearts oh when they start they really fall apart

Well fall apart

Now you won't even let me talk to you, we've got some air to clear
Probably only agree on one thing anyway
That's what the hell is happening here?

Fingers and toes, fingers and toes
Forty things we share
Forty-one if you include the fact that we don't care

See when it starts to fall apart, man, it really falls apart
Like boots or hearts oh when they start they really fall apart

Well fall apart
