Lyrics

Phoebe, don't look on helplessly.
Cannot you see this tangle of three.
Oh my Harvey stop and stay with me.

Feel how our knees buckle beneath,
See how the trees bow down in safety.
Phoebe, don't look on helplessly.

Cannot you see that heart has been broken,
And comes with no rider in slow motion.

Phoebe, don't look on helplessly.
Cannot you see this tangle of three.
