I'm curious to know exactly how you are
I keep my distance but that distance is too far
It reassures me just to know that you're okay
But I don't want you to go on needing me this way

And I don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't want to know if you are less than lonely
Don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't want to know, don't want to know

The day you left me, left me feeling oh so bad
Still I'm not sure about all the doubts we had
From the beginning we both knew it wouldn't last
Decisions have been made the die has been cast

The phone is ringing and the clock says four A.M.
If it's your friends, well I don't want to hear from them
Please leave your number and a message at the tone
Or you can just go on and leave me alone

    General Commentwhat does it for me is the first line of the chorus paired with the second: anybody who's been through a breakup knows the push and pull those two lines describe. if love is a kind of interdependence, the end of love is a wresting apart that exposes the raw ends of compassion and vulnerability, the desire to move toward and the need to move away. for me, husker du described this place of abject ambivalence better than anyone.
