There's a thousand boys with their hearts in their mouths
So I hadn't had the heart to spit it out
That I'm smitten with my worries and my doubts
No lovelorn prince would ever dare to sing about

This record's skipping on a sigh
You should know it's not that I would rather be
Ambivalent in C
But I've been quiet for so long
It's only for the love of song
That I read these tired letters
Give me time I will do better

There's a thousand boys with their knives at their throats
Fired a thousand rounds out of their mouths before I spoke
Yeah, I've been feeling low, but I'm not down and out just yet
Give me a sunny day, maybe sometime in May, I might forget

This record's skipping on a sigh
You should know it's not that I would rather be
Ambivalent in C
But I've been quiet for so long
It's only for the love of song
That I read these tired letters
Give me time I will do better

This record's skipping on a sigh
You should know it's not that I would rather be
Ambivalent in C
But I've been quiet for so long
It's only for the love of song
That I read these tired letters
Give me time I will do better, better, better, oh woh woh...
