lyrics

Uh Oh...

A man sits at the café next door
Day in day out, talking to himself
Two blocks down, screaming drunks at noon
Needles by the drain, how could anyone stay sane?

Uh-Oh….

Paper brings the daily horrors
If not a natural disaster then one human-triggered
So easy to lose it on a Sunday morning
But what really drives me crazy is you and me

Uh-Oh….

I know what you’re thinking, I can be a bitch
You can take it, You can leave it
You know my bark is bigger than my bite
I love love harder than I fight

I know what you’re thinking and I don’t give a shit
This is me, this is permanent
And even though you drive me insane
you know you mean everything to me

Ladadadada...

We may as well pull each other’s hairs out
One each day, Better mad than grey
Our bedroom walls are burning down
We’re now up in flames and we’re to blame

Uh Oh...

I know what you’re thinking, I can be a hey!
You can take it, You can leave it
You know my bark is bigger than my bite
I love love harder than I fight

I know what you’re thinking I'm a little crazy
This is me, this is permanent
And even though you drive me insane
you mean everything to me
