What if everyone got what they wanted?
What if everyone got what they want?

Then you wouldn't be here so drunk and sorry, and you wouldn't cry about what you've lost.

And I wouldn't know these things you'd never think I'd hear.

And I wouldn't listen, I'd have hands over my ears.

She puts some hands over hers.
And please don't put her down for me.
Because you know your words, they just disappear
When no one cares what they mean.

And I don't mean to say I know what she wants or what she thinks.
You don't have to be so mean to make someone else agree.

Ahhh, what a relief.
And there's so many sides to see.
And you see my teeth.
And I'm only smiling.

Cause the chaos waits for us in the covers of our beds.
And the chaos waits for us in these schools in our heads.
And the chaos takes from us whatever we get.
So be careful what you want from love, cause that's what you might get.
And be careful what you want my love, cause that's what you might get.
