  • [Verse:]
  • Down by the lake we were over turning pebbles and depending
  • All the animals alive
  • And I took a drive from your cigarette and I pinched it 'tween my finger and my thumb
  • To lit it dive, and the sun burned through, on the radio
  • Say that you will, say you will although you won't
  • Or you whatever you prevaricate, we both I know that you...
  • And this much I can say, would have waited till the oceans
  • Fell away and all the sunken cities would reveal themselves to you
  • But you won't, will you... Becuz you never do
  • And the sunburn through, sweetest honey dew
  • [Chorus:]
  • And I, 17 and terminally vague
  • I wrote it down and threw it all away
  • Never gave a thought you and I made
  • And you sibylline, reclining in your cube
  • You tattered me and tattered me with
  • The things you would, the things you wouldn't do
  • To tell the truth, I never had a clue
  • [Verse 2:]
  • Now we arise, the curse is young suburban villains
  • In their I'll begotten children from the lawn
  • Come to me now, and on the station wagon window
  • Set the ghost of your two footprints
  • That they might haunt me when you're gone
  • When the light bow dark, you were forever gone
  • But I remember you, you would fall
  • Or you would feel as sweet as honey dew
  • [Chorus:]
  • And I, 17 and terminally vague
  • I wrote it down and threw it all away
  • Never gave a thought you and I made
  • And you sibylline, reclining in your cube
  • You tattered me and tattered me with
  • The things you would, the things you wouldn't do
  • You noticed how I never had a clue
  • Never had a clue...
  • You felt as sweet as honey dew
