When I met her
She was headed some place south-west
And I should've let her
I couldn't breach my house arrest

She said we're too clever
To ever coexist or coalesce
I thought I knew better
But she knew best

Oh, she's like flooding rain
And I never saw the weather change
Two years together, four more apart
But I've still got a watermark

Well, I hear she married
Some circuit judge out near Adelaide
And her sister Sally
Said all of the groomsmen dressed in suede

Oh, but she still carries
Some sort of semblance of a flame
She took all of me except my name

Oh, she's like flooding rain
And I saw it in her eyes as she drained away
Two years together, four more apart
But I've still got a watermark

Well she's got a son now
And this Sunday he'll be three
And her husband's hair's brown
But that boy's as fair as fair can be

His cheeks red as sundown
And his eyes are as clear as sea
You can't tie his tongue down
Guess he sounds a lot like me

Oh, he's half flooding rain
And the other half's too scared to change
Downtrod, down here in the dark
Just scrubbing at this watermark
