How can you have everything and nothing to lose
You're gonna wake up with a ghost instead of a guy
Bulletin board on the wall of a church
You're gonna break down on a midnight date

Pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny
Do you want to meet up at the Pickwood Bowl
Wouldn't be here if the Athenia hadn't sunk

Every other day it's like the day just wins
You make me sorta glad that I waited till today
You're pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny

Two years in and it's time to choose
Sends a bowl around
Ain't nobody gonna see eye to eye
Rain's gonna come in fair-sized drips

Pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny
I believe in love, but it don't believe in....
I believe in love, but it don't believe in me
