  • God damn, man-child
    You fucked me so good that I almost said, "I love you"
    You're fun and you're wild
    But you don't know the half of the shit that you put me through
    Your poetry's bad and you blame the news
    But I can't change that, and I can't change your mood
    Ah-ah

    'Cause you're just a man
    It's just what you do
    Your head in your hands
    As you color me blue
    Yeah, you're just a man
    All through and through
    Your head in your hands
    As you color me blue
    Blue, blue, blue

    God damn, man-child
    You act like a kid even though you stand six foot two
    Self-loathing poet, resident moral, can you know it all?
    You talk to the walls when the party gets bored of you
    But I don't get bored, I just see it through
    Why wait for the best when I could have you?
    You-oh-oh

    'Cause you're just a man
    It's just what you do
    Your head in your hands
    As you color me blue
    Yeah, you're just a man
    All through and through
    Your head in your hands
    As you color me blue
    Blue, blue

    You make me blue
    Blue, blue, blue
    Blue, blue, blue
