The note pinned to the wall Was there for emergencies And written in her nice handwriting It said, “Call me please, If there’s anything you need. You shouldn’t do this alone.” But the hardest part of asking for help Is picking up the phone... No one loves me like they Say they do I know you’ve been in my place What should I do? I try to keep my voice from shaking But it’s no use I hate I’m interrupting your day I have no excuse 48 hours from now, I’ll be OK again. But for now I can’t imagine that’s true I’m crawling out of my skin... No one loves me like they Say they do I know you’ve been in my place What should I do?
She showers you with half off gifts I don’t even know what kind of date that is I’m doing my best It’s getting me nowhere Don’t ask anyone to trust you in the future -chorus- You’re taking everything I gave you and you’re giving it to her giving it to her You say it’s what you want but I know you’re not so sure know you’re not so sure Some parts of life that came along They can’t be ours, that chance is long gone But there are a million things left to see For us to take for you and me, but... All is well Don’t say it if you don’t mean it You can say it if you don’t mean it But don’t accuse me of being optimistic -chorus-
When everything looks far away And I’m feeling pretty small It’s only at that place in time That I’d return your call But I’ve got things in perspective And I‘m feeling like I should So no matter how your reach for me This door is closed for good Go home Sober up Make a list of your relationships And begin to connect the dots Were you responsible at all? Or were they really all just nuts? Take the list Tear it up It’s easier to place the blame On someone who screwed up You’d work on all your own stuff If you only had the guts
I want a girl who loves 30 Rock quotes and who plays the banjo and who’s been to Chicago with me One with a gruff and tender heart and her own set of darts Who has the world’s nicest arms -chorus- I can be crazy, I’m a lady I know all about that You told me I’d plead temporary insanity If we were on TV But that’s not as common as most people think I want you by me when I’m old and hunched over Without your hand on my shoulder What’s the point of getting older? I’m so sorry, I was wrong Don’t want the credit for your hardened heart I thought that shit only happened in a Quarterflash song -chorus- An hours worth of your favorite songs Don’t make up for 5 months worth of wrongs Who will hold me when I need to be calm? That’s my problem now... That’s my problem... -chorus-
If I stop and wonder why We get along so well It's apparent in an instant There's not a lot to tell -chorus- We hate the same things Tell the same lies Break hearts because we're bored Refuse to compromise We'll do whatever we please What's best for you is best for me Let's celebrate our terrible ways, We share the same bad qualities We drive each other up the wall It makes us both insane But when we settle down some The facts are very plain -chorus- Go ahead and build your bond On love and equality But the trick to being stuck for good Is anxiety -chorus-
