We Were Blind
Lyrics
I should never got this blue tattoo
It's like a scar that was left by you
Maybe half of what you said was true
But in the end it didn't matter

You should have never called me from Moline
Late at night on that Halloween
A fading voice from a faded dream
And one that's torn and tattered

You were shaken
I was shattered
We were blind


I should have never met your family drunk
I came across like stone cold punk
They treated me like a piece of junk
I apologized for the bender

You should have told me what was going on
It hit my heart like a cherry bomb
Our own emotional Viet Nam
And in the end we both surrendered

You were young
I was tender
We were blind


Bridge:
I heard you moved back to San Antone
With a drummer who goes by Ramone
Does he thrill you like I thrilled you back then


I should have never tried to call your bluff
I should have seen that you'd had enough
And even then when the times got tough
I thought you'd come back crawling

You should have never screamed at me like that
As serious as a heart attack
I tried to tell you, I don't need the flak
But you knew that I was stalling

You were slipping
I was falling
We were blind
