It's an analogy.


She thought she was Margot Tennebaum
I shoulda seen the trouble all along

Her coats and her books made her better than the other girls I've seen

My passion was being in love
Her was being on my screen

Just like Margot, she got tired with my lies
I shoulda known that would be my demise

But I always love my Margot
(Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

Kerouac and Ginsberg on her book shelf
I didn't understand her, I don't think she understood herself

She just wanted someone to hold
I guess I drew the short straw

Our ship wouldn't have set sail had I known the end all along

Do you think beat poets give her knowledge?
Or like me was it a phase brought on by college?

I always wonder about Margot
(Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

Do you think she's ruined anymore lives?
Or did she just want to ruin mine?

If I remember the details of her smile why am I still sad?
Should I thank her for sparing me more time in a weird way should I be glad?

Here I stand with my wrist sliced
In front of the mirror
If Margot were here, would I see clearer

Will I ever forget about Margot
(Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)
