lyrics

I broke down, I bought a nice guitar
And I whipped it out on stage just like a star
Pair of eyes lookin' back at me
And I wandered over afterwards to see
Who could it be?

She was taken, a boy from Baltimore
And he'd fought in a great number of wars
And I promptly took back a number of words
I tipped my hat to say, you never heard anything

Well the incident don't bother me no more
Hang another missed connection on the door
And break it down

Rewind, drunk goggles on
I wandered out to the after-party lawn
I was starved, start gobblin' chips
Till I see a smile that melts me where I sit
And I can't forget the way she said her name
I felt the spark, lost it when she said
'I got to go'

Well the incident don't bother me no more
Hang another missed connection on the door
Well the incident don't bother me no more
Hang another missed connection on the door
And break it down

I woke up, and I felt like death
With a stranger taste than liquor on my breath
And an empty can of 4-loco to thank
Could it be I met a girl last night again?

I ran home to avoid my fate
And before I knew it I was on a date
But I just wasn't feeling it that day
I backed away, planned my escape

You could say we're all a little cold-hearted
You could also say we don't know what we want
Sometimes our imagination runs away
Sometimes we're just a little off that day
Sometimes it takes a lot to admit
Ain't no destiny to say we'll ever get together (we'll get together)

Well the incident don't bother me no more
Hang another missed connection on the door
Well the incident don't bother me no more
Hang another missed connection on the door
And break it down
