lyrics

one more thing to forget
shred my emotional evidence
tell me would you regret the night
if we had never met?

one more truth to invent
one more fish to reel in
one more way to pretend
this all means something

talk to me like I care
touch me like I'm really there
and I guess all I've ever learned
is that there's nothing as bad as being
alone in this world…
except wishing you were

one more thing for re-sale
one more way you learned to bail
one more dog wagged by its tail
into a busy street

one more man turned sour
meet me for unhappy hour
nothing can stop my flower
from blooming through concrete

chorus

one more love story truncated
will this emptiness ever be sated?
I hate being so complicated
but, hey man, oh, that's just how I am

so go, take it as far as you can
but I'm going to stay where I am
‘cause I can't be led like a lamb
to another slaughter
like I'm my mother's only daughter
like I'm my mother's only daughter
I’m not my mother's only daughter….

chorus

one more thing to forget
shred this emotional evidence
tell me would you regret the night
if we had never met?
