i'm too much or not enough
maybe everyone else is messed up
well anyway i can't seem to stay
in just one state of mind

waiting 'round for something better
i'm the one that wouldn't let her
now i'm back and for
i get bored when she's no perfect find

CHORUS
'cause it's one thing or another
i don't even know why i bother
one thing just tears her down
'cause it's one thing or another
i don't even know why i bother
something i just can't get around

consider the possibility
that you've been had but not by me
we're just kids
don't worry about this

my course is run and i'm so tired
still the next one comes inspired
i feel bad and i should
i made her sad and i knew it would

CHORUS

i need to learn
to wait in turn
'cause now i just step blindly
and i'm only happy when
i can close my eyes and i just dive in
and forget about acting kindly

CHORUS

still i know you won't let me down

    General Commenti have a different version of this song...in the second verse at some point its like "this one's done and i'm an asshole"

    but yeah, great song, i'm obsessed.


    it's about never being able to just be happy with what you have. you're always looking for something better, and once you get what you think you want, you decide it's not really what you want and you want something else. i can relate to this with relationships.

    General CommentI can really relate to this song. It's helped me through some tough times.

    I feel like the guy feels like he's not as great as he should be and he keeps changing his mind about relationships.

    He feels like the girl he's with is just there until he finds something better. I mean, she's good... but he's a nitpicker. There's all these little things he doesn't like.

    So he just keeps moving on towards what he think will be a better relationship... although deep inside he still knows that he was better off in the first place and sometimes he wishes he could just accept that.
