lyrics

He's tall with a chiseled jaw
He's got a charming crooked smile and a twinkling eye
She's got all the boys in knots
She's got that certain little somethin' you just can't deny

They pass me by as I'm stocking the shelves
They ask politely 'bout my cat and my health

Then I know
That they'll go
Out of my aisle around the bend
If I could
Then I would
Be both their lover and their friend

Ain't got no baby who can love me back or hold me tight
It might sound crazy but I know that what I did was right
The world hates perfection
They'd never make it on their own
And now I'll never be alone

They walked right out the door
Expecting nothing, giving nothing
Like I don't need a thing
I know to me they meant more
I took a knife, I took her life
I took her diamond ring
The look on her face as I pulled the knife out
Could only be described as a silent shout

The night we
Became three
A memory I'll always save
Now you'll find
Them close by
Their bodies in an unmarked grave

Ain't got no baby who can love me back or hold me tight
It might sound crazy but I know that what I did was right
The world hates perfection
They'd never make it on their own
And now I'll never be alone

Though they're gone
They live on
Their love is locked inside my head
The ring on
My finger
Means that to me they're never dead.

Ain't got no baby who can love me back or hold me tight
It might sound crazy but I know that what I did was right
The world hates perfection
They'd never make it on their own
And now I'll never be alone...
Now I'll never be alone.
