Play

Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway

It took me a year to believe it was over
It took me two more to get over the loss
I took a beating when you wrote me those letters
And every time I remembered the taste of your lipgloss

Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
But Enid, we never really knew each other anyway

There were times when I wanted to hurt you
And there were times when I know that I did
There were times when I thought I would kill you
But can you blame me, I was only a kid

Now tell me why we never really respected each other
And tell me why I never believed that you were a person too
I always thought that you fancied my brother
I may not have liked it, oh, but memory is a strange thing, oh, and Enid?
Enid, I remember you

Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
But Enid, we never really knew each other anyway

It took me a year to believe it was over
Ooh, and it took me two more to get over the loss
I took a beating when you wrote me those letters
And every time you told me to get lost

Now it's not fair to say that it's 'cause I was three inches shorter then
And it's not fair to say that it's 'cause I was only fifteen years old
But maybe it's fair to say there was a lack of communication
I took a phone message, oh, and speaking of communication, oh, and Enid
Enid, you got a cold

I can get a job, I can pay the phone bills
I can cut the lawn, cut my hair, cut off my cholesterol
I can work overtime, I can work in a mine
I can do it all for you, but I don't want to

Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
But Enid, we never really knew each other anyway

Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
