Why don't you ever want to talk to me.
I stare at the sky always wondering why
you only call when I call,
and you don't stop by.

So, let me be the set of strings,
that answer you when you sing.
They say, "Why can't I fall in love,
I can't hear my heartbeat over the drums."

Why can't I be something you can use:
a tank of gasoline when your car's already full.
Why can't I be that headline in the news,
that says

Let me be the battery,
You put into your tape machine
so you can hear me sing
but now I'm running out of energy.

Why can't I be something you can use:
a tank of gasoline when your car's already full.
Why can't I be that headline in the news,
that says things are working out for the people you love,
things are working out for the people you tried to.
