and history books forgot about us

"you are my sweetest downfall
i loved you first
beneath the stars came falling on our heads
but 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 he kissed me til the morning light
samson went back to bed
not much hair left on his head
ate a slice of wonderbread
and went right back to bed
oh we couldn't bring the columns down
we couldn't destroy a single one
and history books forgot about us
and the bible didn't mention us
not even once"
~ Samson by Regina Spektor
