She pulled out the rug and I was flat on my back
No time for questions I was headed back
to school like such a fool

A vision of beauty a virgin queen
I forgive you for hurting me
Shannon Marie

I cried the whole way I couldn't understand why
Homecoming weekend October sky
and you tried to let me down easy

(repeat chorus)

When morning came I'd miss you most
Hours away down the road
and the thought that you were mine

(repeat chorus)

I read your letters over
I think about what we said
I agree it's better older
when young dreams take leave of our heads

We were just kids acting old
Too proud in first love and gestures bold
we made some promises we could never keep

A vision of beauty a virgin queen
Long blonde hair and blue jeans
Goodbye yesterday and so long history
I forgive you for hurting me
Shannon Marie
