Asked your permission, Didn't I ...
Asking, permission denied
To self medicate this way once in a while
Aren't you afraid of everything
Your love so you can't appreciate anything
Down on the sofa with a record running
Baby I can't help letting you down
Letting you down
Letting you down

Got your rejection, denied, crying
Coming apart right here before your eye
You aren't disappointed, are you now?
I'm still listening, just tell me what you want
I won't feel a thing, just tell me what you want
Leaving you alone wasn't my decision
Baby it's not easy letting you down
Letting you down
Letting you down

    General CommentI processed the hell out of this song to figure out the lyrics.

    I think the line is "Your love, so what's it mean?"

    Also, to be picky, the word "it" appears after "Baby, I can't help."

    That's my attempt at it. I'm open to other interpretations.

    General Comment"Got your rejection, denied" sounds to me like "Got your attention, didn't I". If that's right, the first line would be "Asked your permission, didn't I?"

    I also hear "But you're afraid of everything" and "Dead on the sofa".

    General CommentI mostly agree with NewMoon.

    However, I'm not convinced that "Your love's the missing link," is right. I've listened to it a few times, paying close attention to that line, and I can't hear the "k" that goes long with "link". In my opinion, it seems like he's saying "Your love's listening,".

    General CommentIt could be:

    "asked your permission, DIDN'T I..."

    "...BUT you're afraid of everything
    your love ISN'T REASONING (not sure), you can't appreciate anything..."

    "Got your rejection, DIDN'T I
    crying, coming apart right here before your HEART (not sure, but it would rhyme with apart and he pronounces the H)..."

    General CommentThis is what I keep hearing: (this song is really informal so it's hard to understad at times)
    Asked you permission didn't I?
    To self medicate this way once in a while
    But you're afraid of everything
    Your love (still listening? / 's listening.)
    You can't appreciate anything.
    Dead on the sofa with the record running
    Baby I can't help it, letting you down
    Letting you down
    Letting you down

    Got your attention didn't I? crying
    Coming apart, right here before your eye
    You're disappointed, are you now?
    I'm still listening, just tell me what you want
    I won't feel a thing, just tell me what you want
    Leaving you alone wasn't my decision
    Baby it's not easy letting you down
    Letting you down
    Letting you down
