Lyrics

I never got over, getting over you,
Seems like a million years ago, probably only been a few
Well we lost touch, I never hear from you,
You've been married for years by now probably have a kid or two

Compassionate lover, go and change your name
Empathy, comfort and shelter, show me some of the same.
Let me be bitter, allow me some regrets,
She was everything good to me and I'll never be over Annette.

You loved Van Halen and wearing mirror shades
The records before "Diver Down" and "Have You Seen Junior's Grades?"
I was lead singer just like Diamond Dave,
And you were my Edward, but you got Sammy to take my place.

Compassionate lover, I was the Atomic Punk,
Empathy, comfort and shelter and all the best of luck,
Let me be bitter, allow me some regrets
She was everything good to me and I'll never be over Annette.

Lolita in pigtails, where have you gone?
All I have are the memories and the words to this stupid song.
You said our young love couldn't last forever,
Somehow you got on with your life but I never, I never ...

Compassionate lover, go and change your name
Empathy, comfort and shelter, show me some of the same.
Let me be bitter, allow me some regrets,
She was everything good to me and I'll never be over Annette.
