One of Us Cannot Be Wrong

I lit a thin green candle to make you jealous of me
But the room was filled up with mosquitoes they heard that my body was free
Then I took the dust of a long sleepless night
and I put it in your little shoes
And then I confess that I tortured the dress
that you wore for the world to look through

I showed my heart to the doctor, he said I'd just have to quit
Then he wrote himself a prescription, and your name was mentioned in it
Then he locked himself in a library shelf
with the details of our honeymoon
And I hear from the nurse that he's gotten much worse
and his practice is all in a ruin

I heard of a saint who had loved you, I studied all night in his school
He taught that the duty of lovers is to tarnish the Golden Rule
And just when I was sure that his teachings were pure
he drowned himself in the pool
His body is gone but back here on the lawn
his spirit continues to drool

An Eskimo showed me a movie, he'd recently taken of you
The poor man could hardly stop shivering, his lips and fingers were blue
I suppose that he froze when the wind took your clothes
and I guess he just never got warm
But you stand there so nice in a blizzard of ice
oh please let me come in to the storm
