Well bravo,
You lit a light in my life,
Raised them chips and railroads,
Headed off into the night.
But you were just like the government,
Lying all the time,
With a shattered piece of way-back-when
Stuck, forever in your mind.

When, baby, it was you and me,
One step forward, two step fighting infidelity,
Which always is velvet-covered.

I woke,
I awoke into a ghost
Of a ship that sailed,
But I'ma laugh it up the most,
'Cause I no longer have to worry
'Bout the shadows on your walls.
Can you remember how proud we were
Right before the fall?

When, baby, it was you and me,
One step forward, two step fighting infidelity,
Though, truly we don't mind
Sleeping on a different bed,
Long as you got velvet covers.
Shouting it out to remind you,
Hangin' it out to dry.
