Lyrics

Jack was never whole since the break-up
Though he prayed they would make-up
But that’s now been 7 years

Jack, he heard about her wedding
So he showed up to church with a tie and a .44
He stood by the door and yelled:

“Do you remember we were picking berries, wild strawberries…
And making love in the morning dew?
Do you remember we were planning decades, naming babies?
I wanna mend my life with you.”

They fell in lust @ the Beach Inn
Bumping & grinding and winding
That’s how they began

They fell in love on the highway
Hitchhiking and laughing on down to Costa Rican hills,
Strawberries fields

“Do you remember we were picking berries, wild strawberries…
And making love in the morning dew?
Do you remember we were planning decades, naming babies?
I wanna make sweet love to you!”

Jack was tackled down by the groom’s clan
A gun sound went off and poor Jackie,
He started to bleed

She screamed and pushed past the Best Man
She kneeled down by Jack and she cradled her dying friend
She whispered in his ear, she said:

“I do remember we were picking berries, wild strawberries
And making love in the morning dew
That December we were planning decades, naming babies
I wanna live that life anew
I wanna sin one more night with you, baby
I wanna spend my whole life with you
