But That's O.K.


Oh no!

It's not you

It's me, who sees things too fast

Future trippin' into oblivion

How powerfully I can make up the future

__of ev'rything

Maybe this isn't my real love-life

__that I'm living

Maybe right now I'm still dead



While you're alive and walkin' about

Why don't you shoot me in the head?

I'll tell you why you don't

"Because you want me to love you

Just because you don't love me"

But it's O.K. if I'm pathetic to you

You're just an awful hard attraction

__to stop being attracted to

I've ran around in circles

__going nowhere to forget about you

But did that stop me from loving you?

Not at all

Not at all!

Now keep my heart

__'cause that's all you were ever good for


This can be bliss!

This can be magic!

But it won't be what you want

Only what I want
