Geraldine ©2004 Millman/Page

Was is something she said that made you angry?
Something she did to cause you pain?
Were you feeling kind of crazy?
Did you think about the shame?
Was it something that you always wanted?
Was it something you could not possess?
Did you provoke the crimes of passion to which he would confess?

Geraldine Geraldine look what you started
They were happy ever after and now they're sad and they're broken-hearted
Geraldine Geraldine now don't you feel sorry?
You were putting on your makeup
You were hopin' that they
Hopin' that they would break up

Maybe you had to prove you were better than someone
Maybe you just hated being alone
Was it a complicated reason
That nobody could have known?
Were you tired of being a good girl?
Were you lookin' for a place to hide?
Was it a memory of a bad dream that you kept locked up inside?

Geraldine Geraldine look what you started
They were happy ever after and now they're sad and they're broken-hearted
Geraldine Geraldine now don't you feel sorry?
You were putting on your makeup
You were hopin' that they
Hopin' that they would break up

You had a pocket full of vengeance
You took an overdose of spit
You didn't know how to control it
But that just don't make it right

You were out of your head with bad intentions
Almost went blind with jealousy
You saw the worst in everybody
That nobody else could see
He believed you when you told him
He was the one that you was lookin' for
Now he's alone with his depression since you dropped him on the floor

Geraldine Geraldine look what you started
They were happy ever after and now they're sad and they're broken-hearted
Geraldine Geraldine now don't you feel sorry?
You were putting on your makeup
Hopin' that they would break up
You were putting on your makeup
Hopin' that they would break up
Yeah you were putting on your makeup
You were hopin' that they
Hopin' that they would break up
