The phone rings, it's early, it's seven o'clock.
You know last night, remember when I tried to choke you?
You should know that by now,
No one, no one, no one has won the race.
The next night he's over and over and under
Just why does she need him and why does she stay here
You've never really known that when the white flag is flown,

Leading complicated lives,
By telling complicated lies
He tells her he's sorry, she says over and over
No one, no one, no one has won the war.
There goes a forest and there goes a bluebird
There goes an angel and there goes a steeple
There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
There goes a raven and there go
The ribbons, the ribbons, the ribbons
