Song Meaning
Verse 1
Princess cards she sends me with her regards
Oh, bar-room eyes shine vacancy
To see her you gotta look hard
Wounded deep in battle, I stand stuffed like some soldier undaunted
Verse 2
To her cheshire smile I'll stand on file
She's all I ever wanted
You let your blue walls stand in the way of these facts, honey
Get your carpet baggers off my back
Verse 3
Girl give me time to cover my tracks
You said, "Here's your mirror and your ball and jacks"
But they're not what I came for
Oh I came for so much more
Verse 4
And I know you that too
And I know you know that's true
Verse 5
I came for you
I came for you
I came for you
For you
I came for you
Verse 6
Crawl into my ambulance
Your pulse is getting weak
Reveal yourself all to me now
While you've got the strength to speak
Verse 7
'Cause they're waiting for you at Bellevue
With their oxygen masks
But I could give it all to you now
If only you could ask
Verse 8
Don't call for your surgeon
Even he says it's late
It's not your lungs this time
But your heart holds your fate
Verse 9
Don't give me my money back
Don't want it anymore
It's not that nursery mouth I came back for
It's not the way you're stretched out on the floor
Verse 10
I've broken all your windows
And I've rammed through all your doors
Who am I to ask you to fight my wars
And you should know that's true
Verse 11
You should know that too
Verse 12
I came for you
I came for you
I came for you
For you
I came for you
Verse 13
Don't call for your surgeon
Even he says it's late
It's not your lungs this time
But your heart holds your fate
Verse 14
Don't give me my money back
Don't want it anymore
It's not that nursery mouth I came back for
It's not the way you're stretched out on the floor
Verse 15
I've broken all your windows
And I've rammed through all your doors
Who am I to ask you to fight my wars
Verse 16
You should know that's true
You should know that too
Verse 17
I came for you
I came for you
I came for you
For you
I came for you
