Lyrics Jebediah

This will take some explaining
But I think you will agree
There is no use pretending
That there's hope for you and me

And I love her, but do you think she can see
When I tell her, it's the end for you and me
It was over, ever since you went and shot me
Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon in my heart...

Like a harpoon
Like a harpoon in my heart

I can handle the fighting,
It's the affection I can't stand
And I don't mind us talking,
Just don't try and touch my hand


When you left I didn't want you back
But now you're gone so won't you come right back
Come right back [x5]


Why does it hurt?
Simple matters don't seem worth
We're the same but it's not happening again
