lyrics

It's been a while since I was in this town,
but everything's the same, just not in black and white.
There's the park where I had my first kiss,
and the shop where I got my first cigarette.
And the drive in theatre where I had my first date,
With Alexandra Leon back in second grade.
Until I saw a girl much prettier than her,
On the bonnet of a silver 4x4.

I apologise, Miss Leon.
I didn't mean to break your heart.
I apologise, Miss Leon.
I didn't mean to break your heart.
But I guess that's just one of those things.
That only ever stops when you're not breathing.

And there's the hill with the old oak tree,
Joseph fell of it and broke his leg.
As we carried him home to his mom,
He told me to ask Alex to the prom.
She wore a dress in red to match my tie,
but by half ten I had disappeared.
Down to the basements with Sarah Jane,
and danced to the music in our heads.

I apologise, Miss Leon.
I didn't mean to break your heart.
I apologise, Miss Leon.
I didn't mean to break your heart.
But I guess that's just one of those things.
That only ever stops when you're not breathing.

But I guess that's just one of those things.
That only ever stops when you're not breathing.
But I guess that's just one of those things.
That only ever stops when you're not breathing.

Down fifth avenue, I saw a sign
"Flea Market Today: By The Old Drive-In".
Ten minute walk through a broken.
Windows were dark with dust and age.
Selling necklaces, bracelets and rings,
Was a woman I barely thought I knew.
Picked up a trinket and asked for its price, she said
"If you're who I think you are, there's no charge."
