Fiction Family – Betrayal lyrics

I don't remember much about that night.
But I'm pretty sure it rained the day I died.
I think it rained, I think it rained.
I'm pretty sure it rained the day I died.

You and I were always closest friends.
It's women that make enemies of men.
A pretty face, A pretty face.
A pretty face would one day do me in.

Her eyes were like the winter when she goes,
Holding secrets only winter knows.
And Winter knows, Winter knows.
Winter's seen the wolves in women's clothes.

She came to me in middle afternoon.
We held each other close the whole night through.
And love was blind, Love is blind.
I never saw her let you in the room.

Someone always wins
And then they write a book.
I sing my defense
Fingering a different crook.

A gun shot was the only word you said.
And all of my defenses came out red.
Love was red, Love is red.
She left with you, you left me lying dead.

So I watched her as you put me in the dirt.
She had my wallet tucked inside her skirt.
And I went numb, I went numb.
So I'm not dead if what you did don't hurt.

    I think it is pretty clear. A woman gets in between two friends, and friend who didn't pen the song throws out "bro's before ho's" to get the girl. Jon does a great job, as always, of relating the experience to something much more intense. In this case, death. Much like "Yesterdays," he finds a way to relate the loss of something to dying, which our amatuer minds and hearts often feel when we lose something we selfishly think we deserve. Death and a loss of love work well in song, but in reality, they have no relation. I appreciate how Jon lets his friend know that the friend isn't to blame. It's a pretty face that makes us act up, and all men fall short of honor for the same reason. I know I have.
