hair of the dog, this one named leslie

"Love hurts, love scars,
Love wounds, and marks"

smell the small town dust
swirling around the rink
hear the tinny sounds
from speakers too small to blast

"Any heart, not tough,
Or strong, enough
To take a lot of pain,
Take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud
Holds a lot of rain"

his long blonde hair
in eyes of blue
the sultry summer of '75
oh, God, how he skates

"I'm young, I know,
But even so
I know a thing, or two
I learned, from you
I really learned a lot,
Really learned a lot
Love is like a flame
It burns you when it's hot"

first man with wheels
12, a dreamy age to hold hands
the thrill of touch, too much
weekly friday night anticipation

"Some fools think of happiness
Blissfulness, togetherness
Some fools fool themselves I guess
They're not foolin me"

rolling around and around alone
feeling music in my young soul
despair in every pore
nothing will ever be the same

"I know it isn't true,
I know it isn't true
Love is just a lie,
Made to make you blue"

big world ahead
bigger wheels to follow
more dust and rain on the horizon
i knew it even then

"Love hurts, ooh ooh love hurts
Ooh ooh love hurts
Ooh ooh..."
