First of all, you're just a little emotional
And not entirely practical
Neither am I, if you hadn't noticed
You're illogical, and we both struggle so hard to be punctual
We're also forgetful
Remember that time when I left my key in the front door of my building
You laughed at me

I'm selfish and you're needy and you're selfish, too
Why wouldn't you be?
And you're jealous and I'm greedy and I'm jealous, too
How couldn't I be?

I want someone who stays together while I come undone
Who doesn't cry quite as often as I do, it's kind of a lot
If you're hadn't noticed
I want someone who doesn't drink alone
And it's not that I judge you, it's just that, you know
There's a future to think of, at least so I'm told
And you're not thinking of it when you call my phone
At three in the morning and you're out in the cold
And you want to come in so you won't feel alone
And you say, "Let's play my favorite game again
Let's play it again"

I'm selfish and you're needy and you're selfish, too
Why wouldn't you be?
And you're jealous and I'm greedy and I'm jealous, too
How couldn't I be?

There are worse things I could be
And worse things you could be
But two of us, that's just too much for me

And you're brilliant
And I'm jealous and in awe of you
Why wouldn't I be?
You're amazing, when you're playing, I'm in love with you
How couldn't I be?
