I've been a liar, I've been a thief.
But now I don't think that is what I want to be.
I'll do anything you want any old time.
Oh yeah.
Don't have any money.
(Pockets are empty)
Don't have any looks,
(I am a dog)
just borrowed pianos
(I'm coming over)
that I can't hardly play.
(To use what I want to)
I may have a pen somewhere, staff paper too.
I'm asking for it.
You need some more brandy.
(Got a pack of cigarettes)
You need cocaine.
(Give me more drugs)
You're in self-destruct mode.
(I'm self-destructing)
Maybe it's the pain.
(And hurting all over)
I don't need anything,
(Don't need nobody)
I just need you
(Nobody else)
You and I.
It's all so shameful.
You and I...it's all...it's a shame.
You're just another fool

    I've always heard "You're just unlovable"

    This was the first Dears song I heard, and I immediately fell in love with their sound. I adore this song.

    Me too :) I love the way he sounds like he's singing down a telephone line. It has such a desperate edge to it.

    This too was the first song I ever heard by the Dears and I must say I love it. With the lyrics- I'm pretty sure he says 'you need more cocaine' not brandy. I double checked with the song & yeah.. <3

    The telephone line effect is indeed pretty spiffy.
