lyrics

Well I wish there was a window in this big brick wall
And I try to eat sugar and it tastes like salt
Wilted flowers were the only kind of ones you sent
Is that any kind of way you ought to treat a friend?

'Cause you
Didn’t do me like you could have done
Could have given me a castle in the sun
Instead you threw me down inside this hole
Why you chew me out I’ll never know

Well the days go by and they’re all the same
Each one stumbling along so lame
You stole my heart when I was just sixteen
How could anyone treat anybody so mean?

'Cause you
Didn’t do me like you could have done
Could have given me a castle in the sun
Instead you threw me down inside this hole
Why you chew me out I’ll never know

And if a castle is too much to ask
I would be happy with just a minute of your time
Because the past is such a tangled thread
I need you to help me to unwind
Unwind

Well I’ve got my books and I’ve got my poems
So I won’t be traveling along alone
Feel like the shadow of a shadow in the early dawn
Tell me, baby, did I hold on for too long

'Cause you
Didn’t do me like you could have done...
