lyrics

I was sure the summer
Would last the whole year long
Back before the flood
When I was still young
But I’m always wrong

The sky ripped open
The rain came down in throngs
I was sure the thunder
Would go forever on
But I’m always wrong

You might think that I’m prevaricating
But I swear I’m not lying when I tell you what scares me
Is the thought I might be right one of these times

When I met you, baby
Down at Madame Wong’s
I never thought we’d look back on
Ten years gone
But I’m always wrong

(I still see you walking through the door;
You looked at me and I hit the floor)

We fought that whole first year
We’d fight till the dawn
I didn’t think I could take
Any more of that Sturm und Drang
But I’m always wrong

You might think that I’m prevaricating
But I swear I’m not lying when I tell you what scares me
Is the thought I might be right one of these times

Oh, the dirty breeze
Oh, the dirty breeze
Has dropped me to my knees
Dropped me to my knees

Oh, the dirty breeze
Oh, the dirty breeze
Has dropped me to my knees
Dropped me to my knees

Oh, the dirty breeze
Oh, the dirty breeze
Has dropped me to my knees
Dropped me to my knees

The sky ripped open again, my love
But I didn’t mean to break your heart
The second I thought I had it all figured
Was the second it all came apart

Well, the sun came up
Just like it’s always done
And the morning birds
Filled the air with song
And the beat goes on

You might think that I’m prevaricating
But I swear I’m not lying when I tell you what scares me
Is the thought I might be right after all
