There was that whole weird thing with the horses
I think they know exactly what happened, I don't think it needs any explaining
I'm pretty sure I wasn't your first choice
I think I was the last one remaining

I wish we hadn't gone and destroyed it
'Cause I was thinking we could pull another weekender
You've still got a little bit of clairvoyance

I remember the metal bar
I remember the reservoir
You could say our paths had crossed before

So if it has to be a secret, then I guess that I can deal with it
You and I both know it's a negative thing
In the end only the girls know the whole truth

There were a couple pretty crass propositions
There were some bugs in the bars, there was a kid camped out by the coat check
She said the theme of this party's the industrial age
And you came in dressed like a train wreck

I remember the OTB
Five second delivery
You could say our paths had crossed before

So if it has to be a secret, then I guess that I can deal with it
God only knows it's not always a positive thing
To see a few seconds into the future

And if you swear to keep it decent, then yeah, I'll come and see you
But it's not gonna be like in romantic comedies
In the end I bet no one learns a lesson

So if it has to be a secret, then I guess that I can deal with it
You and I both know it's a negative thing
In the end only the girls know the whole truth

And if you swear to keep it decent, then yeah, I'll come and see you
But it's not gonna be like in romantic comedies
In the end I bet no one learns a lesson

In the end only the girls know the whole truth
In the end I bet no one learns a lesson
