lyrics

You talk to yourself
When you think no one is watching
And it makes me want to take you in hand

And tell you again
You’re safe and you’re home
But that just makes you angry, so I leave you alone

To fight off the bad angels
Who came back beside you
Whispering their sneaky deceits
‘til you do I’m just happy
‘cause you’re sitting here with me
At the Muni, watching Quarry fight Ali

He’s been away too
I know not like you were
But he’s fit, still pretty, and whole

Said he didn’t have a quarrel
With those folks over there
Well you didn’t either
Now I wish you’d not gone

To that jungle that took you
And made you more hard
Than you ever would have needed to be
But we’re far from the worst
‘cause you’re sitting here with me
At the Muni, watching Quarry fight Ali

And I’m not scared to open the papers anymore
Or watch the news on my T.V. set
I don’t flinch anymore with every knock on the door
But that doesn’t mean than I can forget

Did he have someone there
Telling him not to go
Stay here, to fight for what you believe

That should have been me
It was my job to protect you
Now I curse at my weakness every time I look at you

And see how you’ll never be
The way that you were
When you talked and you laughed easily
So I’m relived but I mourn
I know I’ll never forgive me
At the Muni, watching Quarry fight Ali
God I’m so glad you’re here
But I know I’ll never forgive me
At the Muni, watching Quarry fight Ali
