I had a vision of you sitting at my Dad's
Back deck, summertime, Blue Moon in your hands
But it'll probably never happen, far as I can tell
For despite my best intentions, I just could seem to treat you well

I think I only met your mother just that once
The time we moved your shit to your new apartment
I think she almost liked me, but I can't really tell
What kind of woman'd love a bastard who was never gonna treat her daughter well?

Your best friend was suspicious, She's known you for years
and the whole half-dozen guys who to you have drawn near
I was a recent divorcee and that's a real tough sell
to a woman who just wants to know that her best friend's gonna be treated well

And the whole thing boiled down to a single thrift store date
A bunch of musty dresses and records in plastic crates
I think I tried to kiss you as I used to do before the storm had swelled
I could never be your friend and I was never gonna learn how to treat you well
