I'm All Right, Except You Don't Like Me

Verse 1:

My heart pounds at the thought of you.

It seems I will forever be you tool.

This isn't the first time

I've been aching over you, trying

To get you to hold my hand.

Come cry in my arms

For a day, a week, a month.

You'll be OK, I know.

And you know you'll be OK, too.

Chorus:

I was happy to hear you were happy again

You're all right, just like you said

And I'm all right, too, can't you see?

I'm all right--except you don't like me.

Verse 2:

Small talk makes me sick

When it's with you. So many things

I'm dying to speak. We fill this thick

Space to the brim with nothing

And hold back the things so desperately

Needed to be spoken aloud.

You'll be OK, I know.

And you know you'll be OK, too.

Chorus:

I was happy to hear you were happy again

You're all right, just like you said

And I'm all right, too, can't you see?

I'm all right--except you don't like me.

Verse 3:

I stalk back and forth in the mirror and think

"Who? Who are you?"

Who am I to you?

You told me to write a song for excitement

But all I can really think of is how

Choked I feel when I'm around you. If spoke out

Would you listen? If left this song for you to see,

Would you understand?

Chorus:

I was happy to hear you were happy again

You're all right, just like you said

And I'm all right, too, can't you see?

I'm all right--except you don't like me.

I never wanted to play this game, and

All the things I feel for you

Scare me more everyday.
