My manner is imperious, my logic is empirical
And I’m bad at being a girlfriend so I’m hoping for a miracle
I fear your disappointment when I don’t turn out ethereal
Though either way for me I know it means some new material
Now don’t go thinkin that you’re special just because you are
Cos I’m bound to overthink it and I always go too far
But if you think this kind of tempest may just be your cup of tea
Then I’d like to offer you the heart of me
Each attempt to clarify serves only to confuse
And it feels just like a fracture but it looks more like a bruise
And my heart can’t bear the weight
Of one more empty “I love you”
And I’ve strained my eyes to blindness
Trying to find a point of view
Now don’t go thinkin that I’m crazy just because I am
Cos I wouldn’t act indifferent if I didn’t give a damn
And if you think this kind of tempest may just be your cup of tea
Then I’d like to offer you the heart of me
Now don’t go thinkin that I love you just because I do
Cos I’ve never met a certainty I couldn’t misconstrue
But if you think this kind of tempest may just be your cup of tea
Then I’d like to offer you the heart of me
Yes, I’d like to offer you the heart of me

    General CommentI guess that's my favorite song on "Roulette Girl". It's simply beautiful.
