Her name, her name was Darlin, yeah.
I met her in a sleazy pub. Yeah, she had just one eye and a heart full of hate. She was in a car accident, Darlin, she lost her boy and her husband. I met her in this motel at 2:00 AM. She told me: ďJoe, díyou wanna make this night special?Ē

Oh Darlin, oh Darlin!
Oh Darlin, you want this to be special to you?
What is this, yer birthday or your marriage day?
Or the day that your son and husband died too?
I have a tragic story behind this face, I have a scar in the in the back of my neck. Iíve been to a war, where everybody wants to kill everybody else, and this is a war of the hearts.
This is a war of the soul, this is the end of everything that is beautiful.

When you told me you wanna have sex-capade, you went down to the lobby of the motel, asked a dwarf and a nigger to join us

That beautiful night we spent together, I was so drunk and stoned I canít remember much of the closure. But I know it was there because you left me a note, and you said that it was so beautiful that we were in love for just one night. And I told myself: "Damn, this woman needed a lay!Ē

Oh Darlin, oh Darlin, oh Darlin!

From my jeans, she stole that money, bitch!
