lyrics

I saw you in the subway when you wore a pigtail
pretty kind of shoes and a dress I liked
Our eyes met for too long to just turn around and run home
so I set a day before I said good bye
Now cant we skip to whats following the intro
and I dont mean the thing we did in bed at night
Im talking about the outros when love fell and the pain rose
All of that to hear you in the bathroom crying
about when it was just right, starting on that busride
all the way to when you were embarrassing my song
or something of that kind, you know, whatever comes to mind
whatever reminds me its been going for way too long
Sorry if this song offends you
and that a song about you is not even one you dance to
but no end til I try
You know, Ill look you in the eye and tell you I dont know what
just a few words and these words will make you cry

How can I say this, want you to understand it
Its like an animal what we once had
Something like a sea cow that was merry but is now
swimming belly up, yeah it's dead

I saw you in the metro eating a burrito
sitting in the crowd but I just cant hide
This is the nearest I will ever get
cause now I only see your head
When I come closer someone in a distance dies
So why dont you go now
I focus on the background
before you see me longer than necessary
Ive already been through this
You show me how this is fruitless
and the shape of your ass as you walk away from me
I used to talk
I used to feel like eating hearts with a fork
And no end til I ruin it
It takes somebody cruel
You didnt show you like me
but to make it work I have to love you too

How can I say this, want you to understand it
Its like an animal that broke its back
No its not a Batman, he does what noone else can
You can only tell it probably ends up dead

Takes a lot of feel and at least more than an ordinary bow
Same thing wherever you go
Put up with beats, stand up and grow
Takes a lot of feel and at least more than just one normal arrow

So many parrots and canaries in the room here
but I dont even know the kind of rules they set
Like do I ask your father, can I be with your daughter
Wait I dont know how this got into my head

Why cant I say this, want you to understand it
Im like an idiot if I leave soon cause you seem like a cool cat
and I dont wanna say that to the mirror
I wanna say it to you
