Known Ya

Lortabs and whole milk with a twist of lime
At home with the lonely party just about supper time
You dropped by I didn’t know just what I would fix
Put your tongue down my throat and brought out your bag of tricks
But now you’re going to California
And this I understand
I’d only wanted to’ve known ya
Now I don’t think I can
Inside most nights you could see the ripple of my fire reflecting on the walls
Guess those nights I was seeing triple and feeling three times tall
Drove a long drunken way to see you
Told me bring it on despite the trip
But I found you sleeping, bleeding on your pillow
Like something straight out of Flaming Lips
But now you’re going to California
And this I understand
I’d only wanted to’ve known ya
You know me 
Tragically romantic
Hopelessly lost in transit
But its kept my meat clean and my heart a dream
Like a thought I think I thunk
Saw you on the Bookface
Titled in a relationship with Head Case
Last I knew you told me to shoo
‘Cept only kindly like you do
But now you’re going to California
And this I understand
I’d only wanted to’ve known ya
Now I don’t think I can
