Good morning baby,
Guess you wanna touch me now
You wanna put your hands on my face
Tell me you love me,
Tell me you need me,
Don't say that you love me
Don't say anything
'Cause I am not that kind of man,
I'm much less than you think I am...

So many people are just like Jesus,
They drag all this weight, you can't see anything better
Where they've been, or where they are
Well, tell me what the hell's the reason when we never get anywhere
But you want me to say, "Hey, it's okay..."
But I'm so dizzy baby, just get the hell away from me

How can you breathe?
How can you see?
I can't even sleep when you're with me

I'm sick of summertime
I know, all the best things in life are unkind
To be everything I could be, anything
But all the time I'm thinking, "If I only had a pair of wings..."
You want to touch me, just get your hands off me
Don't touch me,
And baby, I can't see that you see...

How can you see?
How can you breathe?
I can't feel a thing when you're with me...

I can't take it this way,
I hope you understand,
Don't you fucking touch me
I can hardly stand to look at you,

How can you breathe?
How can you see?
How can you breathe?
How can you see?
I can't even sleep when you're with me
How can you breathe?
How can you see?
I can't feel...
I can't feel...
Can't feel a thing,
Can't feel a thing,
Can't feel a thing...

    General CommentI'm pretty sure Adam Duritz refuses to play this song much because it's waaaaaay to painful for him to sing about. I know he won't put it on an album--I got it off of a live bootleg.
