lyrics

Jamie couldn't play music
But she had a face
And she knew how to use it
To get through the days
And she moved to Colorado
And she brought her cat
And she bought herself a condo
And she got a potted plant
And she called her mom and told her
How her life was turning out
The phone between her ear and shoulder
Cigarette inside her mouth

And I never was in love with her
Though I think I could've been
Then again I think could've been almost anything
And I'm sorry that I wasn't there for Jamie

Jamie never read the bible
She didn't get people who did
All she knew was survival
Ever since she was a kid
Her father didn't leave them money
Just some bruises and a curse
She learned to find it kind of funny
She learned to fucking hate it first
Jamie didn't like to wake up
Very early at all
So she stopped wearing makeup
It didn't change what people saw

And I never was in love with her
Though I think I could've been
Then again I think could've been almost anything
And I'm sorry that I wasn't there for Jamie

Jamie never got married
But she knew someone who did
That don't mean she didn't love me
Or that I was not stupid
Jamie couldn't play music
That don't mean she didn't deserve
To have her feelings communicated
With pretty chords and words
Jamie couldn't play music
That don't mean she never heard it in her head
And every word I said

And I never was in love with her
Though I think I could've been
Then again I think could've been almost anything
And I'm sorry that I wasn't there for Jamie
