Nobody knows it but I am so sad Nobody knows it but I am so sad And that is the saddest of all my girl That is the saddest of all We climbed the ladder to the top of my house Never letting go of your hand The sky trades the moon for the sun my girl The sky trades the moon for the sun And I gave to you my ugly brown coat You made it pretty when you put it on Warmth in the early morning chill my girl Warmth in the early April Then you said you'd trade the love of a man Tears fell soft from your face to my hands Said you'd trade your heart for mine my girl I traded my heart for those days And you made it clear it was strictly a deal Of springtime love and that's how I should feel So I set the clock back an hour my girl I set the timer just right You see somewhere back there when I was boy Furious I had become by the point That men are just liars and thieves of sorts Men are just liars and thieves But I still believe and I stand by my words I don't know what you have seen or you've heard But somebody's lying to you my girl Somebody's lying to you You really made me believe I could stay Part with you actions in part what you said But that was just foolish pride my girl And those are only feelings inside So I'm going back to the place where we met I'm going to find the beer bottle we left Wedged in the limbs of the tree that we sat in Wedged in the magnolia tree Well we hid for days like a proud pair of thieves Too sure we were right too stubborn too leave Wasted with the moment we lifted my girl Stolen forever with you
