You know that I don't like your smile.
The one that you always give to him.
For such a soft-spoken one,
you give me the broken one.
When you give that smile to him.

And every day you find me a way to get burned.
And every night time is my time to get love returned, too.
Round and round and round I go...
How could you possibly know?
It's not fair
It's not fair
Are you there?

You know that I don't like your eyes.
Their one-thousand pounds make me sink.
Whenever your ardency shows,
I start to take off my clothes.
Just because of your wink.

And every day you find me a way to get burned.
And every night time is my time to get love returned, too.
Round and round and round I go...
How could you possibly know?
It's not fair
It's not fair
Are you there?

What can I say
When things don't go my way?
I thought everything was too good to be true...and you...
I've got to get it all off my back
But most of it's up in my head.
At least I'll have my favorite Pavement record when i'm dead...yeah...
oh no.
yeah yeah.

    General CommentThis is such an awesome song...probably my fav BK song right now. Especially the lines "whenever your ardency shows / I start to take off my clothes / just because of your wink."

    I think it is probably about a guy who really likes a girl who keeps sending him fairly mixed signals. She hangs on lots of guys, but he is so obsessed with her that the slightest bit of interest she shows totally throws him over the edge, even if she doesnt really mean it.
