I'm about to explode, with love

And go nowhere with it

Loving a stranger

'Cause I don't know any better

What is she doing right now?

Where was she, Tuesday?

Where could she have been?

I don't get it

Why do I want her this way?

Is this feeling completely O.K.?

What's wrong with my fuckin' heart?

I know this isn't "mutual"

It can't be

She doesn't even know me

I'll be damned if I scared her away

Shit, I probably already did

Whatever

There'll be another

But when the fuck will that be?

A burning love in my chest

Burst into tears aflame

She'll never want me this way

I may as well put a bullet in my brain

Who can want this piece of shit that I am?

Certainly nobody I've met yet

When can the real loving begin?

I suffer, here, eating the dirt that I've been dished

She'll just never want this

Time for another

Oh bother

The story never changes

My heart still a wanders

Love is too far yonder

Why even bother?

Love from her

I'll never get

I am just

A piece of shit

So I will crack up, and laugh

Laugh the pain all out

Instead of continuing

To love her a whole bunch

Too much

And I am done with her
