I can't fight, wrong or right
We're standing on either side of a tall brick wall
We can't climb, still we scratch and claw
I give up, you adore me
Is it a victory for that sad old story?
I don't know, just call it a draw
It's a lonely, lonely, lonely peace
It's a lonely, lonely, lonely peace
My heart is busted, but still beats
It beats and beats and beats
I think it's beating a retreat
You say you'll miss me, well call me a softy
But that and half a buck'll buy a bitter old coffee
And I'm sorry, you're just running from what you fear
I know you saw me so clear
Now I'm floating around like a ghost in a graveyard
And I'm sorry, I think I better disappear
Blame that little flying pest
Cupid in full battle dress
He took aim, I took a hit, that's my bad luck
So you pulled the arrow out
You tried to save me, and someday maybe I'll thank you
But till then, I'll just remember to duck
