[Part I]

Oh what a girl
I wish you had another sister
For me
I'd take her to the park while you were at work
How many kinds of people do you think there really are
For me?
Enough to fill a room?
Enough to fill a mall?

One sunset falls on the sea
You are not crying

Oh what a girl
I wish we had a conversation
Face to face
Cause when you speak, you speak in waves
But then you go into your secret place and hide
From me
I wanna look in all the dark dark dark dark dark dark dark dark corners

One season you wait and see
You are not crying
One lover turns into me
You are not crying
For me
Oh Argentina

Born in 1988
Give or take
We share bottles
We share gum
When you smile you smile with all your teeth at once

Oh what a girl
I want you wearing my t-shirt
XL
Yeah, you wear it well

How many kinds of people do you think there really are
For me
I want to see you in the bright bright bright bright bright bright bright bright morning

One sunset pink on the sea
You are not crying
One lover turns into me
You are not crying
For me

Oh Argentina

Born in 1988
Give or take year, a month, a wedding day
We share bottles
We share gum
When you smile you smile with all your teeth at once
And when you smile with all your teeth
Yeah, I'm done
And when you smile with all your teeth
Yeah I'm done

I don't want to want you like I want you
I don't want to want you like I want you
I don't want to want you like I want you
I don't want to want you like I want you
I don't want to want you like I want you

[Part II]

Television wakes me up
with the sound of a gun
Feeling like I'm here alone
But I'm not the only one

You were lying next to me
Wearing someone else's clothes
Have I been asleep for long
In the infomercial glow

Now I see the things that I have done
Everything in focus all at once

[Part III]

When I was an infant
I could see it clear
When I was a lover
I could see it clear
And yeah
I could be a fool
Sometimes
But I was a lover
and I could see it clear

Cause if I had known that you were only here for a weekend
Cause if I had only known what you were thinking
I would have been
So so so so much nicer
So so so so much nicer

If I was a lighthouse
I would look all over the place
If I was an asshole
Thank you for keeping a smile on your face
And yeah
I can be a fool most of the time
But I was a lover
And I could see it clear

Cause if I had known that you were only here for a weekend
Cause if I had only known what you were thinking
I would have been
So so so so much nicer
So so so so much nicer
Yeah

I can see it
I can see it
Clear

I can see it
Clear
