I know you’ll come in the night like a thief, But I’ve had some time oh lord, To hone my lying technique. And I know you think that I’m someone you can trust, But I’m scared I’ll get scared and I swear I’ll try to nail you back up.
And I know you have a heavy heart; I can feel it when we kiss So many men stronger than me have thrown their backs out trying to lift it But me I’m not a gamble you can count on me to split The love I sell you in the evening, by the morning won’t exist.
You might wonder why I’m an asshole I wonder I’m so uptight I wonder why I just don’t chill out And learn how to have a good time But sometimes I’m scared right out of my mind And sometimes I just get angry Because I’ve been let down by the people that I love But I will not let down the people who love me.
I once sat up on my roof and examined the planning of my town. I saw the structured grid and pavement cutting through grass and I remembered the cold of winter running up the legs of my pants. I picked the nicest lawn and imagined the two of us rolling around down along the ground. I saw myself touch your face and I noticed jets begin to race above our heads. But I pinched my arm and remembered how much you hate me.
