My worst fear is not the Devil,
It's that I'm not what you want.
When I forget, you keep me level,
You wear a smile when I cannot.

It's tough to see any potential
In me,
But you sure do set me straight.
You make it seem like I'm essential
To you,
Like I'm not just excess freight.

The winters get so cold,
I feel my organs freeze.
You thaw me out,
You make it July in January.

The winters get so cold,
I feel my organs freeze.
You thaw me out,
You make it July in January.

It sucks that I don't have more money,
Because I'd take you to the mall,
And buy you everything you want.
We'd eat croissants with overpriced honey,
Instead of chips beneath my bare apartment wall.

And just so you know,
If anybody does you wrong,
I'll do my best to break their arms.
If anybody makes you cry,
I'll give 'em a bruise, the world's worst black eye.
And if I do something wrong,
I'll write you another of these silly songs,
And tell you that you're pretty,
Because you are.
Because youtake the permafrost within my heart.

And because you,
Because you,
Make it July...

The winters get so cold,
I feel my organs freeze.
You thaw me out,
You make it July in January.

The winters get so cold,
I feel my organs freeze.
You thaw me out,
You make it July in January.

And my worst fear is not the Devil,
It's that I'm not what you want...
