I remember when we first met I took you down to Mississippi to see the cotton and the old cities where it still looks like the 50s and you put your hand in mine we were havin' a real cool time now you won't even look at me on the ticket line You've been acting like you've never been in love You were sittin' in the front seat of my car you wanted me to take you to Walgreen's I wanted to take you to a motel where the light turns your face green and then take off your bluejeans and wrap your legs around my head toss all night in a rented bed that's what you shoulda been doin' instead of acting like you've never been in love I know that time can change your mind It never really did much to change mine I'm still in love with every girl that's ever been mine... and a few more that weren't I put it all down I expect it all back sometimes I leave with nothing sometimes I take the whole fucking stack This time I hoped to leave the table with you (And you'd know exactly what I'm talkin' about) If you'd ever been in love I remember the last day I remember the plane landing it was late afternoon and I knew that it was ending I hoped we'd reached an understanding But you kept me hangin' on more than a week after you'd been gone But I didn't mind sweetheart though I knew it was wrong (it was so much better) Then you acting like you've never been in love You've been acting like you've never been in love
