This is the only chord I've ever learned to play
Oh, I guess I lied again
I always do
I always have to get my way

But for all my dollar card tricks
Banal games of pick-up-the-stick
I never get the one thing I want

Sweetness asked me if I thought she was worth it
I could only moan
I could only hold my tongue
I hope she understands

That I never meant to fail her
And I prayed to St. John I'd get better
And she is the one thing I want

This is the only song I've ever learned to sing:
"I swear I always needed You
Even when I never said or knew it"

So I'll reform, I'll reconstruct
I'll tear it down to build it back up
And someday get the one thing I want
