Just Jack — 253 lyrics

I watched her smile
Dissolve like Alka-Seltzer
And in all honesty
Man I wish I could have helped her,
But the words are spoke
Fell ledem to the ground
Hitting that carpet with a muffled carpet sound

I remember sitting later on the 253
Trying not to cry but the crys on me
Sick to the stomach
Feel so guilty
But I can't change the fact that

{Chorus:}
She had nothing that I needed
So over years the love receded
A bit like her old mans hair line
And mine
And at first she was all that I could see
Til other girls invaded my periphery
And we lost something or so it seems
Fading like her favorite jeans

I can't read her face
This is an unknown language
I justhold her pretty hand
Cos that's about all I can manage
I wish you wouldn't look at me that way
Knowing I'm a selfish basterd
She'll be thanking me one day
And maybe we can even laugh at this after

I remember sitting later on the 253
Trying not to cry but the crys on me
Sick to the stomach
Feel so guilty
But I can't change the fact that

{Chorus}

She had nothing that I needed
So over years the love receded
A bit like her old mans hair line
And mine
And at first she was all that I could see
Til other girls invaded my periphery
And we lost something or so it seems
Fading like her favorite jeans

No no no no promises (x3)
No promises
No promises

And this is the final curtain call
As in and out of love we fall
And it's too late to change that
It's also too late to explain that

{Chorus}

She had nothing that I needed
So over years the love receded
A bit like her old mans hair line
And mine
And at first she was all that I could see
Til other girls appeared in my periphery
And we lost something or so it seems
Fading like her favorite jeans

She had nothing that I needed
So over years the love receded
A bit like her old mans hair line
And mine
And at first she was all that I could see
Til other girls appeared in my periphery
And we lost something or so it seems
Fading like her favorite jeans

No no no no promises (x3)
No promises
No promises
No no no no promises (x3)
No promises
No promises.
