The phone rings, it's early, it's seven o'clock.
He says sorry I woke you, but I just had to talk
You know last night, remember when I tried to choke you?
I didn't mean it, I was drunk, it was only a joke.
You should know that by now,
When the checkered flag comes down,
No one, no one, no one has won the race.

The next night he's over and over and under
And after he's finished she lies there and wonders
Just why does she need him and why does she stay here
And then in the darkness she'll quietly say Dear,
You've never really known that when the white flag is flown,
No one, no one, no one has won the war.
