Broken glass and cigarettes, writing on the wall
It was a bargain for the summer and I thought I had it all
I was the one who gave you everything, the one who took the fall
You were the one who would do anything, the one who can't recall

Where she was while she was sleeping, in another woman's bed
Or the doctor's or the lawyer's or a stranger that she met
If there's nothing I can gain from this or anything at all
It'd be the knowledge that ya gave me, when I thought I'd heard it all

It was a long time with you
It was a long time with me
It'd be a long time for anyone
But looks like it's meant to be

Social class and registers, cocaine in the hall
All the way from California on the way beyond that stall
To those non-negotiations to simulate a call
All the bad of learning evils and your ways around the laws

That keep you up and sitting pretty on a pedestal of men
And now you're sleeping like an angel, near the man who you gave head
If there's something I can make of this or anything at all
It'd be, the devil hates a loser and you thought you had it all

It was a wrong time for you
It was a wrong time for me
It was the wrong time for everyone
But looks like I'm about to see for myself

If I could go back in time to the place in my soul, there all alone
Lonely tear drops, ooh, are calling you but I don't wanna know it now
'cause knowing you, it won't change a damn thing but there was a time

Yeah, there was a time
Didn't wanna know it all
Didn't wanna know it all and
I don't wanna know it now

Oh

Yeah, there was a time
Didn't wanna know it all
Didn't wanna know it all and
I don't wanna know it now

Oh
I would do anything for you
There was a time
I would do anything for you
Oh, I would do anything for you
There was a time

There was a time
Oh, I would do anything for you
Oh, I would do anything for you
Yeah, there was a time

Didn't wanna know it all
Didn't wanna know it all
And I don't wanna know it now

Didn't wanna know it all
Didn't wanna know it all
And I don't wanna know it now

I would do anything for you
There was a time, was a time
