i can't blame you - unquestioned affection is the most questionable thing one could think of. but it DOES happen. like raining frogs. obviously, it isn't a regular occurance, and it's so weird it's hard to enjoy, but you get that we love you and that's the important part...<333

metaphor
met"a*phor, n. [F. m['e]taphore, L. metaphora, fr. Gr. ?, fr. ? to carry over, transfer; meta` beyond, over + fe`rein to bring, bear.] (rhet.) the transference of the relation between one set of objects to another set for the purpose of brief explanation; a compressed simile...

and when i asked
for a separate room
it was late at night
and we'd been driving since noon
but if i'd known
how that would sound to you
i would have stayed in your bed
for the rest of my life
just to prove i was right
that it's harder to be friends than lovers
and you shouldn't try to mix the two

cause if you do it and you're still unhappy
THEN YOU KNOW THAT THE PROBLEM IS YOU
(and it's true that i stole your lighter
and it's also true that i lost the map)
but when you said that i wasn't worth talking to
i had to take your word on that
but if you'd known
how that would sound to me
you would have taken it back
and boxed it up and buried it in the ground
boxed it up and buried it in the ground
boxed it up and buried it in the ground

BURNED IT UP AND THROWN IT AWAY
you put in my hands a loaded gun
and then told me not to fire it
when you did the things you said were up to me
and then accused me of trying
TO FUCK IT UP
(but you've never been a waste of my time
it's never been a drag
so take a deep breath
and count back from ten
and maybe you'll be alright)
and the license said
you had to stick around
until i was dead
but if you're tired of looking at my face
i guess i already am

(but you've never been a waste of my time
it's never been a drag
so take a deep breath
and count back from ten
and maybe you'll be alright)

sensitive heart, you're doomed from the start

anybody can be just like me, obviously.
not too many can be like you, fortunately.
