Track Name: King Of Romance
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'

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
