I only talk to you by telephone
and rarely see you on my weekends home
I’d rather sit and watch my television shows
you know as well as me we’re not in love

can’t help but think of all the times you’ve said goodbye
never once did you feel the need to force a cry
no that’d be too much to ask, movie pusher movie pusher
I hate it baby, I hate it baby

I have a strong heart but you play too rough
you listen to techno I hate that stuff
at people’s parties hey we don’t say much

but when we’re alone together talking like babies
I know just how to keep you in my head
if I had another lover could I keep you on the side

I spend our peaceful hours peeking at your watch
it never used to be cold sitting on your roof top
but now I feel the weather
our fights have fucked our shelter
our fights have fucked our shelter

but when we’re alone together talking like babies
I know just how to keep you in my head
if I had another lover could I keep you on the side

when we’re alone together talking like babies
I know just how to keep you in my head
if I had another lover could I keep you on the side

I only talk to you by telephones
rarely see you on my weekends home
you’d rather sit and watch the movies that you push
you know as well as me we’re not in love

can’t help but think about to talk about our lives
and how you said you’d never had a better time
oh you used to make my Mondays Saturdays
I hate it baby, I hate it baby

but when we’re alone together talking like babies
I know just how to keep you in my head
if I had another lover could I keep you on the side

and when we’re alone together talking like babies
I know just how to keep you in my head
if I had another lover could I keep you on the side

yeah when we’re alone together talking like babies
I know just how to keep you in my head
if I had another lover could I keep you on the side
