From The Late Album

YOU HAD A LOOK DOWN YOUR NOSE AT MY CHRISTMAS CLOTHES
YOU HAD A DRINK ON ME AND MY SHABBY SUIT
AND WHILE THE NIGHT WAS TUNING BLACK
YOU REFUSED TO GET INSIDE A CAB AND LEAVE DOWNTOWN BEIRUT
I THREW YOUR CAPE AROUND YOUR SHOULDERS
AND IN A VOICE THAT SOUNDED OLDER
THAN THE HEADS OF STATE YOU HATED
AND YOU SAID YOU WANTED ME TO KILL

I SAID I DON'T KNOW YOU
THOUGH I WANTED TO
IF I DON'T KNOW YOU NOW
NEVER I WILL
NEVER I WILL
NEVER I WILL

FIRST YOU SOLD YOUR FAMILY HEIRLOOMS AND YOUR MANORS
FOR A TRINKET THAT THEY SAID WOULD BRING YOU LUCK
THEN YOU GAVE YOUR PRUDENT BODY TO A SAILOR ON SHORE LEAVE
FROM A SHIP HE CALLED THE FORTUNATE ONE
WHEN YOU TRAVELLED 'CROSS THE SEA
THEN YOU DECIDED YOU'D COME TO ME
BUT I WAS HANGING 'NEATH A DEAD TREE
ON A GREEN HILL

BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW YOU
THOUGH I WANTED TO
IF I DON'T KNOW YOU NOW
NEVER I WILL
NEVER I WILL
NEVER I WILL

HONEY YOU'RE THE VIBE QUEEN,
A STAR UP ON A SCREEN
WHO'S SWALLOWED DOWN A CHOKING POTION
A PERSONALITY PILL

I DON'T KNOW YOU
THOUGH I WANTED TO
IF I DON'T KNOW YOU NOW
NEVER I WILL
NEVER I WILL
NEVER I WILL

BUT I TRIED TO APOLOGIZE
AND HONEY THATIS WHEN YOU CAME IN FOR THE KILL
AND WHEN I TRIED TO WI YOU BACK YOU TOOK A RIFLE FROM YOUR RACK
AND I DANCED TIL YOU HAD YOUR FILL
AND WHEN YOU SEE ME ON THE ROAD
YOU SUMMON UP YOUR MORAL CODE
YOU GOT SOMETHING TO PROVE TO ME STILL
