 Struggling with The Flag? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

The phone rings, it's early, it's seven o'clock
He says sorry I woke you, but I just had to talk
You know last night, remember when I tried to choke you?
I didn't mean it, I was drunk, it was only a joke
You should know that by now
When the checkered flag comes down
No one, no one, no one has won the race

The next night he's over and over and under
And after he's finished she lies there and wonders
Just why does she need him and why does she stay here
And then in the darkness she'll quietly say dear
You've never really known that when the white flag is flown
No one, no one, no one has won the war

They're complicated people 
Leading complicated lives
And he complicates their problems 
Telling complicated lies
He tells her he's sorry, she tells him it's over
He tells her he's sorry, she says over and over
You've never really known that when the white flag is flown
No one, no one, no one has won the war

There goes a forest and there goes a bluebird
There goes a partridge and there goes a Go Train
There goes an angel and there goes a steeple
There goes a cop car and there goes an eagle
There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
There goes a raven and there go

The ribbons, the ribbons, the ribbons
The ribbons of the flag
Of the flag
Of the flag
Of the flag (of the flag)
Of the flag (of the flag)
Of the flag (of the flag)
Of the flag
