lyrics

glimpsed you through the double-wall on a barren stage
never got my bearings in the golden age
but you were always so easy to talk to
and you're the only one who seemed to get my songs

and i always really liked you
always hoped that there would come a time
when i could throw my arms around you
and you'd teach me how to read your mind
the way i practically begged you to read mine

seems to me we synched up when you come along
looking back, guess i became the man i thought you'd want
you made it seem so easy to please you
you made me feel as if i could do no wrong

and i always really liked you
always hoped that there would come a time
when i could throw my arms around you
and you'd teach me how to read your mind
the way i practically begged you to read mine

yeah i always really liked you
and i swore i saw between the lines
that someday we'd surely start anew
get down to business and our real lives
where i would be yours and you mine

took to writing songs without a subtle touch
took to sharing just a little bit too much
working so hard to make you snap to
as though a song has fuck-all to do with real life

to this day i really like you
and hold out hope there's gonna come a time
when i can throw my arms around you
and you'll teach me how to read your mind
although you never even needed to read mine

yeah i always really liked you
and i swore i saw between the lines
that someday we'd surely start anew
get down to business and our real lives
where i would be yours and you mine
