I'm Allowed

"Waited for an answer
But I waited for twenty five years
They stopped my bleeding
But could never stop all those tears
I waited for the day when
He came out from beneath all that weight
I tried to lift it
But it seems I got there
too late

Just to late
Just to late
Cause I'm allowed

Came to the party
But I got my own signals crossed
Thought I was welcome
But I felt like I should get lost
I know that I'm older
Cause I feel that everywhere
I could talk to no one
Cause I knew not one person there

No one's there
They just stared
But they're allowed

As vivid as a car wreck
Watch them dripping off highway ramps
She came to me smiling
Her heart underneath both her hands
She spoke of a French boy
At least two times through the night
It could have been the liquor
Or the music but that is all right

That's all right
She's allowed
And I'm allowed
I'm allowed
I'm allowed"

- Buffalo Tom "I'm Allowed" from the album Big Red Letter Day
