You, David, Maria, And Me

This song is by Simon Joyner and appears on the album Hotel Lives (2001).

Of course I remember that summer on the coast
I remember cutting up my time
And feeling like a guest without a host
And watching you go rotten on the vine

That was the year the wall came down
And nearly everyone escaped with their head
But here the rain smeared all the seashore towns
So we just climbed the walls inside instead

Then David came to visit both of us
And you and he became entangled too
But loyalties split too many ways are too dangerous
So we thought we'd divide all of you

And you made me a promise but you didn't keep it
So I swore I'd explore a vow or two
That's when Maria came down to visit me in secret
But I was too eager so she chose you

Then I remember David getting seasick
And trying to tear you from Maria and me
Thinking he could possess you was hysterical
And after you had seen him on his knees

And Maria with her illnesses real and imagined
And that lost father syndrome you ignored
Well you left her in a shell down by the ocean
With two sunken ships on a hurricane shore

Things get a little hazy after you flew
I know I looked around the sand for my neck
And yes there was a period of catching up to do
So I remember the funeral but I've forgotten the death

Now I hear David's teaching fetishes to couples
Who don't know what they're missing in their beds
And Maria she wrapped all of her dreams up in troubles
While I got all of you out of my head

Still thank you for the memories you rescued
I thought they were someone else's but they're mine
And thank you for the lessons all those years ago
And this invitation I respectfully decline
