Lyrics
Couldn't Know

Ah, the sun beats down
On my tan on my well-fed body
And the fishermen at the end of the pier
Strike a chord of curiosity
With their thick lines
Yeah, they've caught something big
And they asked me
Can I lend a hand?

Want you to see
What I, I could not see
I want you to know
What I, I could not know

They got the ropes down underneath her
And we started, to pull her up, as she
Started to abandon all her children
As she got along-side the pier
I stared into her one sad eye
And I, I began to dream

I want you to see
What I, I could not see
I want you to know
What I, I could not know
The most beautiful thing I'd ever seen
Oh she's, she's staring back at me

She, was eight feet long
And she weighed four hundred twenty pounds
And I'll name all her children
In hopes that they obtain
Some degree of her perfection
And it will take them all
Two years to hit the water

I want you to see
What I, I could not see
I want you to know
What I, I could not know

The most beautiful thing I'd ever seen
Oh she's staring back at me
And she's in my mind right now
Yeah, the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen

Alright, here's the rub
She, she's not comin'... back
Yeah, and that's why I sing this song

Hey, I could not know
What I got myself into
I could not see, what I'd become

I believe, I guess believing
Won't bring her on back
Yeah, take it away
Aw, everything
I'll sit on a ledge... outside
For the tenth time
Too wide
Don't wanna have to...
