Had To.

Why did I break up with you?
Could there have been better sex?
No.
Is there someone else?
No.
Did I meet someone my own age?
No.
Do I think Iíll ever find
More romance than I had with you?
No.
With you it was the best.

So what in Godís name
Could ruin us?

Well, we sat at night
In your beautiful foyer
Looking at Christmas lightsÖ
All around usÖ
Except on the house next door,
For sale.

You said,
Without a clue what it would do to us,
You donít want blacks moving in.
Guess you forgot Iím a jazzman.
