lyrics

we peak too soon and we blow the surprise or
we bangin on the drums from way under the riser
clear it from above the belt to below the thighs or
blush until we gush like an unfaithful geyser

scheming up and down the radio dial
is course upon my fingers as a carpenter's file
leave me in your car-park in a neat little pile
well that's the kind of stats that you fake with a smile

and all hail the one that got away

we speak too soon and we miss the connection
from sweet to defeat it's all in the inflection
we rollin on the dice and lose the bet that detection
frees us from the bust and the rust of complexion

mix it up and cork it in the tiniest vial
it's the stock exhibit A in every trivial trial
but the constant interplay can only go for a while
til you walk it off base and take it out on the tiles

and all hail the one that got away

from broadway to broadway
from mckibben st. down to south van ness
we're skewing it our way
and every day it means just a little less
