  • Subtight turned on a dime
    In the sultry west-coast night
    How could you lost your roll
    Amongst the hopeful and the drunk
    You showed me so much
    You showed me so much

    Took us to the new house, speeding along
    In a green machine
    Riding the wake of another
    Once a week
    You showed me so much
    Oh you showed me so much

    Those days are now long gone
    Wish I had your picture
    Never been able to be true
    So I wanted, I wanted
    I wanted to help you
    I wanted to
    And I wanted to help you

    And I have to admit
    Things got weird for a bit
    And I scream for you
    There goes my man

    And I scream for you
    There goes my man

    And I scream for you
    There goes my man Writer/s: Peter Green
