The moment you said yes was arguably the finest one yet
And the moment I spoke my mind was my own fault

We each have our ways of playing it safe
Though that's the last thing we need
For example, you don't call
For example, I act like I don't notice when you don't call

And the moment that you give in to an evening of conjugal sin
Is the moment that I concede that I answer to a physical greed

I am missing you more now than ever before
And I do not sleep nights
I am missing you more than is possibly healthy
And I don't sleep

Do you get tired of the stupid little boys
Who do not think for themselves?
'Cause I got tired of the stupid little girls who wear
Their bodyweight in makeup

You've been cutting your hair in the bathroom at school
I'm trying hard not to stare, trying hard to be cool
But my heart will go bad if it never is used
And then I'd really be sad because I made it for you

What do I have to do to convince you that you
Would be stupid to be unaffected by me?
What do I have to do to convince you that you
Would be stupid to be stupid?

And how can I protest
Your total lack of interest?

Do you get tired of the stupid little boys?
'Cause I was never one of them
I got tired of the stupid little girls
Who spend their whole lives planning their weddings

What do I have to do to convince you
That I am like no other?
My heart will go bowling my body to science
But my soul never met year 2000 compliance
What do I have to do to convince you
That I am like no other?
And who do I have to fuck to finally be your lover?

And the moment that you said yes is the moment that you'll regret
You'll spend every summer day trying hard to forget

Or maybe you won't, I cannot really know
Everyone says they know when they don't
Maybe you will be happy
For the first time in your whole life

Maybe you will be happy
Fast asleep next to me, next to me
You will be fast asleep
Next to me, next to me
You will be fast sleep
In my bed till 11
We will be fast asleep
While we ascend into heaven
