Sometimes I wish it were my best trick
to pretend that I'm okay with this
to say that this is where I belong
to pretend that we can get along

Sometimes I wish that I had a gift
For pretending I'm not sick of it
for seeing myself nowhere else
For seeing here a world of wealth

'Cause every time I breathe I exhale you
Everything I see is painted you
Even in anger my flames are dull
even swimming in you my feelings are null
Even at our best we're just comfortable
Our love doesn't cut, but it's so dull

Sometimes I wish it were my best trick
to pretend that I'm okay with this
to say that this is where I belong
to pretend that we can get along
to pretend that we can get along

Every time I breathe I exhale you
Everything I see is painted you
Even in anger the flames are dull
Even swimming in you my feelings are null
Even at our best we're just comfortable
To this lull, some tension is preferable
Our love doesn't cut, but it's so dull.

I'll find what I saw in you
Or I'll find what I saw in me
And we'll live happy and free
Of each other, or as we
