Right and wrong, not a title hopes rest.

lyrics

Nadine
You're the prettiest cheerleading, cheerleading queen
Nadine
Not stuck up or nothing, you would talk to me
Nadine
In the cafeteria you wouldn't make fun of my sneakers too much

When I think of those nights
And I think of how I was so alone
And nobody cared and nobody called
But you
Well, you didn't call but I know you loved me
From far awat

Nadine
I didn't think the accident would happen, I didn't think the gun would go off / I didn't mean to shoot you with that gun, needle, or something else
Nadine
That flash of light was nothing I could have forecasted
Nadine
I didn't think you'd grab the gun, I didn't think you'd force the trigger to go off

And when I think of that night
I think of you and how lovely you were in that steel-metal grey reflecting in your eyes
Beautiful craftsmanship
I loved you Nadine
You were a work of art
.
You were beautiful beyond words
You were attractive, yes, you were also intelligent
You were incredible, you were talented, athletic, smart
You were the kind, you were everything, you were,
You were the kind of girl I learned to call a woman\

Nadine
The most beautiful girl, special girl / I would never take your record collection and sell it for drugs
Nadine
Those books and such, you were a doctor, a lawyer, or something / I'm not a computer guy, I can't sell your stuff on eBay
Nadine
I didn't sell your stuff, I couldn't really get a cost, I couldn't get a price on eBay
It was a lot of inventory, it was a lot to see, it was a lot to pack
Your stuff never got a value on eBay
Nadine
All those blankets and such, your Stax Volt Five / all your Stax, your Volt, your surf collection
Nadine
The way you expressed yourself with those African artifacts
Nadine
And when I look at that Ethiopian something, a mask, a face on the wal
It reminds me of you and how I loved you
I fell in love with your brain and your body
All those years ago
I'm sorry, Nadine
