Enid Lyrics

The silence, the terror, the pain, the horror
As your mom comes downstairs

Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway

It took me a year to believe it was over
It took me two more to get over the loss, whoa-whoa
I took a beating when you wrote me those letters
And every time I remembered the taste of your lip gloss

Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
But, Enid, we never really knew each other anyway

There were times when I wanted to hurt you
And there were times when I know that I did, whoa-whoa
There were times when I thought I would kill you
But can you blame me, I was only a kid

Now tell me why we never really respected each other
And tell me why I never believed that you were a person, too
I always thought that you fancied my brother
I may not have liked it
Oh, but memory is a strange thing
Oh, and, Enid
Enid, I remember you

Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
But, Enid, we never really knew each other anyway

It took me a year to believe it was over
Oooo, and it took me two more to get over the loss, whoa-whoa
I took a beating when you wrote me those letters
And every time you told me to get lost

Now it's not fair to say that it's 'cause I was three inches shorter then
And it's not fair to say that it's 'cause I was only fifteen years old
But maybe it's fair to say there was a lack of communication
I took a phone message, oh, and speaking of communication
Oh, and, Enid
Enid, you caught a cold

I can get a job, I can pay the phone bills
I can cut the lawn, cut my hair, cut out my cholesterol
I can work overtime, I can work in a mine
I can do it all for you
But I don't want to

Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
I can teach you how to dance, how to sing, how to knit
How to make things that you never ever made before
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, I can teach you how to use cookie cutters
To make crazy things out of Play-Doh
Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
Little houses, little farms, little accessories for your mom
For your Barbie set, for your friends and your family
But, Enid, we really never knew each other anyway
Enid, I can teach you how to snowmobile, cross-country ski, snowshoe
But I don't want to

Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
Enid, we never really knew each other anyway
