Chorus

Well, it seems to me like I just can't win.

I'm banging on a door that's shut.

I'm walking on a line so paper thin.

And you're giving me a paper cut.

Verse 1

Every single time I sneak up close enough to you,

You take out your stun gun,

And you panic and you run.

You act like I'm dripping cyanide.

You act like I'm made of dynamite.

Chorus

Well, it seems to me like I just can't win.

I'm banging on a door that's shut.

I'm walking on a line so paper thin.

And you're giving me a paper cut.

Verse 2

Every single time you slip and fall a little into me,

You rush for a hasty retreat,

And tie shackles to my feet.

You act like I'm poisoning your air.

You act like I'm a deafening blare.

Chorus

Well, it seems to me like I just can't win.

I'm banging on a door that's shut.

I'm walking on a line so paper thin.

And you're giving me a paper cut.

Bridge

Well, it seems to me like I just can't win.

But I'm still not giving in.

I've got Spartan strength in my soul,

And I'll keep pushing till I

Move the walls around your heart.

I'm patient, and I'm alert,

But sometimes

Chorus

It seems to me like I just can't win.

I'm banging on a door that's shut.

I'm walking on a line so paper thin.

And you're giving me a paper cut.

Chorus

Well, it seems to me like I just can't win.

I'm banging on a door that's shut.

I'm walking on a line so paper thin.

And you're giving me a paper cut.
