Less Cute

Album: Say Anything (2009)
  • Never thought that I could feel such a slap in the face
    Since my semester in New York where I drank it away
    Social strategies were taught to bohemian crowds
    And my love was like a food stamp handing it out

    Oh then I fell in love with you all faded grizzled and mature
    You left me naked pining whining on your bathroom floor
    If it makes you jealous, tell us just which boy we should adore
    And then we talk about myself so I don't mind that he's a bore

    He's like a less cute version of you, but he'll have to do
    He's like a Wal-Mart version of you, but he'll have to do
    Have to do

    Mountain man brag about your band to me
    You've got me hot with all those snide remarks about my poetry
    But he gobbles up every single line about the stars
    And how they scar my slightly chubby arms like brightly lit cigars

    [Chorus x2]

    Every time I see your face, I die inside
    Every time I see your face, I die inside Writer/s: MAXIM BEMIS
