hound dog eyes on a great white shark
so borrow my shirt
& wrap it tight on your tattered heart


see what's going on behind you
is there no one trying to find you
if you're forgetful well i'm here to remind you
when the best part's supposed to come
when the best part's supposed to come
oh the best part's yet to come
