|— "Terms of Embarrassment"|
You, girl, are the answer and the question,
A completely new dimension,
Yeah, you are.
You, girl, took my heart, but you can't keep it,
If you don't want it, I won't need it, anyhow.
You're everything I've learned so far,
And the things that I don't know yet.
Every sunset, every star,
I can't list all the things you are.
Yeah, you, girl, you make me weak, you make me strong,
How would I ever get along,
Without you, girl?
Song by Bowie Quinn dedicated to Bex Mack.
