Dog in the manger
Always a danger
You got me so, so wrong
So what?
So long
Don't be a stranger

It had barely started out
Before it started heading south
In your neverending story of a love
That dare not shut its mouth

I get the picture, picture
I think I get it
Think?
No, I think I know
No, no, I wish I didn't
Still, I think I get it

Behind the curtain
We got to flirtin'
It was a gateway drug
I know, I know, it's disconcertin'

Even now when I'm still driving by your house
When it's late at night and the lights are out
And I saw somebody sneaking in your side door
What are friends for anyway?
I'm just wondering who you think you are fooling with
Such a tired myth
That says some people are better off alone
Than with a stepping stone

I get the picture, picture
I think I get it
Think?
Ha!
I think I know
No, no, I wish I didn't
Still, I think I get it

Why do you insist on being such a girl about it?
You said you hope we could still be friends
I doubt it
No one earns a debt
Index finger, second fret
Another song torched to warm the winter
Of our disconnect, now

I'm still trying to decide
Between a thwarted lust and wounded pride
When I see it absent everywhere I look
And even when I close my eyes

I get the picture, picture
I think I get it
Think?
No, I think I know
No, no, I wish I didn't
Wish I could be cold
C-c-cold, like certain people
I know up in the mixture
No, no, I get the picture
Still, I think I get it

    General CommentAnother ambiguous Sean Nelson lyric: is it

    "I'm just wondering who you think you are fooling with / Such a tired myth"

    or

    "I'm just wondering who you think you are / Fooling with such a tired myth"?
