I’m currently on a huge Nickel Creek kick, and this is the song I keep coming back to.

Helena, don’t walk away
before you give me back my heart.
If it were mine, it would be yours to take.
I’m sorry I let down my guard, oh Helena.

You looked so sweet.
I should have seen
while I was playing for fun,
You were playing for keeps.

You win, I lose; is there some way
you can leave me in your debt
so my girl and I can live to die another day?
On that day I won’t forget you, Helena.

You look so sweet waiting for me,
while I wait for her to give me any reason to leave.
Don’t waste your pretty sympathy:
she’s going to be just fine.
And Helena, so will we.
So will everything in time.

Helena, don’t walk away.
Did you hear one word I said?
Oh well, I never really liked her anyway,
And I forgot her, I’ll forget you, Helena.

You’re not that sweet,
and neither is she.
Go ahead and tell her anything you want,
’cause, Helena, guys like me never sleep alone at night.
I don’t need your sympathy,
’cause I’ll always be just fine.

Yeah, I’ll always be just fine.
