Does it make you happy to ignore me on streets? I guess by now you think I’m weak I wish you could have said something before now I wouldn’t share a bag of chips with you In my opinion you don’t have a clue I’m being cruel I’m being cruel I don’t want to be part of your scene I’ll stick with him and keep my nose clean You’re the one pretending to be licking stamps All alone in a room following lines on maps It’s clear you don’t want me here How about I send you a book on nutrition You can stop spoon-feeding me non-fiction Just for a while, I will fake a smile Why did you say she was a friend of mine? I thought it was me you couldn’t stand I’m confused I will win you will lose You’ve taken to phoning my house when you’re drunk Confessing all your love I wish you could have said so before now I don’t want to be part of your scene I’ll stick with him and keep my nose clean
Amigo Mío 03:37
Permanece detrás No tan cerca de mí No sabes dónde he estado No te sientes a mi lado Permanece tan lejos de mí Como yo quiero estar de ti Este sitio es tan frío No hables por mí No quiero hablar Es perder mi tiempo No me hagas reír No me hagas llorar No me preguntes mi nombre No me mires a los ojos Amigo mío
You know I cannot stand your love for alcohol You’re such a tall man but you’re looking kind of small I’ll send you movie stills to rid you of your ills Because you’re ill Now you’re finding out I’m hard to please You’d better watch your mouth you’ll bring a girl close to tears I ripped up my lyric book, gave myself the blackest look Black looks You would think by now I wouldn’t miss this place It makes my poor legs weak and my sweet heart start to race To race, yeah to race
