The history of them all [re: Remade/Remodeled]  

And the first one was a member
of my older brothers' friends
who chewed me up and spat me out
until I stood up and surrendered
and did it over again
because that's what I thought love was
well that's all it was to me
but now I think I'm getting smarter
and won't make that mistake again
so I've cast her aside
with a wave of my hand

but the next one was a sweet girl
who didn't deserve that kind of thing
but man she got it anyway
and she got it pretty bad
but forgave me all the same
there's a lesson there in that
which I suppose I forgot already
but that's the way it goes
when you're young and drunk and laughing
at everything that passes
between you and someone else

So the third one was much older
and as older ones tend to do
she took me in and taught me
all that she once knew
but I knew those things already
and politely took my leave
and she went back to where she came from
a coastal town across the sea
doubtlessly with bad thoughts of our love
but that's all that we were worth

and yet the fourth one was a mixture
of all that came before
and we'd get drunk and roll around
and end up on the floor
and yeah everything was happy
but then everything was sad
until one day she left here
saying 'you're the best I ever had
but now don't hold this against me
cause it's all that I can do
to leave with what I have
and let you keep what's left of you'

so the last one was a sister
of a certain friend of mine
and I took her from her lover
and relieved her of her mind
but when we were standing naked
she could be heard to say
'I wish I'd been much wiser now
than I had been yesterday'
but nothing can be perfect
and then everything was lost
so we went our separate ways
and no one thought about the cost
because we are young and pretty
well, as pretty as we'll be
and though people talk,
people talk, it's nothing to do with me

and I’m still yet to say I’m sorry
for all the things I might have done
but you can never tell who’s worth it
or who's as worthless as yourself
so I’ll go on blindly sighing spitting
at anything I see
safe in the knowledge fate will guide me
from problem A back to point Z
cause it’s nobodies fault we’re heedless
to the lessons of the past
cause when you’re young and drunk and mindless
you want to learn them for yourself

so the next one will be different
as we each say every time
she'll be sweet and smart and sober
with nothing better for her time
and we could lie together happy
playing records in the dark
and there'll be no more need for codeine
acid and absinthe
and no more need of anyone
to tell us what we're worth
well hey a boy can dream
and I do so everyday
that someday things could be different
so don't take my dreams away

(with apologies to Jeff Mangum)
