Lyrics (from the Begin to Hope liner notes):
You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first beneath
The sheets of paper lies my truth
I have to go, I have to go
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of Wonder bread and
Went right back to bed
And the history books forgot about us
And the Bible didn't mention us
Not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I love you first beneath
The stars came falling on our hats
But they're just old light, they're just old light
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was red
Told me I was beautiful and
Came into my bed
Oh I cut his hair myself one night
A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
And he told me that I'd done alright
And kissed me till the morning light, the morning light
And he kissed me till the morning light

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of Wonder bread and
Went right back to bed
Oh we couldn't bring the columns down
Yeah we couldn't destroy a single one
And the history books forgot about us
And the Bible didn't mention us
Not even once
