Okay I give up
Let's just call it even
Cause I can't keep waiting around for the perfect apology
And I'm sure you've said you're sorry
A thousand times
But my anger makes me deaf
Just ask my psychologists

So let's do this
Let's get to know each other for real
All my life I've been wishing on eyelashes
For words to fit how I feel
All my life in case you hadn't noticed
I've been driving around
Trying to find me a home

So don't give up on me now
Just cause you think you've already lost
I need your love now more than ever
Yes it's selfish I know
To want to make up
But if we don't and you die
I'll be left without feeling
Any love for you

So tell me what thrills you
What did you dream about last night
Why did you marry her
And in your heart did you always know we'd be all right
Tell me have you ever lost faith
And just wanted to end it all
Or are you still mad at god for your whole life
It's like the bottom of the ninth in the batter's box
Showing up to watch your favorite band
While the band was packing up

So don't give up on me now
Just cause you think you've already lost
I need you now more than ever
Yes it's selfish I know to want to make up
But if we don't and you die
I'll be left here without feeling
Any love for you
If we don't and you die
I'll be left here without feeling
Any love for you
If we don't and you die
I'll be left here without feeling loved by you

Okay I give up
Let's just call it even

    General CommentI love this song, and really, the entire album "The Other Side" is great, too. I don't really know a lot of people who like Melissa Ferrick, and the people I know who have heard her music don't like it. Maybe it's just because I like her sound more (especially songs like this, with heavy, melancholy guitar), but I also think it's her voice. I personally like her voice, I can hear a lot of emotion in it, but it's also very unique. I love unique voices, but I think in general, people appreciate a unique voice when it's from a man and not a woman. Maybe I'm just grasping at straws here, but I can easily see how a lot of people would not like her voice because it's not really pretty, it's just unique.
