poor you for listening lyrics – 1118

you never were much fun
you made me hide my eyes
you hit me like the sun
a life built on routine has replaced that of surprise
and i’ve been feeling better since i turned away my eyes
ever since you left me, i felt like i was new
and i haven’t got much else to say to you

poor me
stick around and you will see
poor me
poor you for listening

all i ever want is morning
all i ever get is night
all i ever want is boring
all i ever get is fright
all i ever want is the doctor’s office lollipop
all i ever get is the tet*n*s shot
all i ever want is the feeling that i’m over you
all i ever get is not

i want an empty world
i never had a friend
i never had a girl
all these things i’ve never had before, now i’ve got in spades
and hearts, and clubs, and diamonds for fifty-two straight days
as i step up to the table, i find i’m unprepared
all i got is poker, all i want is solitaire

now that we’re apart
the party never stops
the boredom never starts
i haven’t time to breathe now, that’s why my face is red
as rings, and tones, and busy signals bounce about my head
savoring what’s left of sleep as i am forced to rise
and figuring i’m not missing much, fall back and close my eyes
