  • Baby, you've been so distant from me lately
    And lately don't even want to call you "baby"

    Saw us getting older
    Burning toast in the toaster
    My ambitions were too high
    Waiting up for you upstairs
    Why you act like I'm not there?
    Baby, right now it feels like

    It feels like you don't care
    Oh, why don't you recognize I'm so rare?
    Always there
    You don't do the same for me
    That's not fair

    I don't have it all
    I'm not claiming to
    But I know that I'm special, yeah
    And I'll bet there's somebody else out there
    To tell me I'm rare, to make me feel rare

    Baby, don't make me count up all the reasons
    To stay with you
    No reason why you and I are not succeeding
    At all

    Saw us getting older
    Burning toast in the toaster
    My ambitions were too high (too high)
    Waiting up for you upstairs
    Why you act like I'm not there?
    Baby, right now it feels like

    It feels like you don't care
    Oh, why don't you recognize I'm so rare? (I'm so rare)
    Always there
    You don't do the same for me
    That's not fair

    I don't have it all
    I'm not claiming to
    But I know that I'm special, yeah
    And I'll bet there's somebody else out there
    To tell me I'm rare, to make me feel rare (yeah, yeah)

    I'm not gonna beg for you
    I'm not gonna let you make me cry (make me cry)
    Not getting enough from you
    Didn't you know I'm hard to find? (Hard to find)

    Saw us getting older
    Burning toast in the toaster
    My ambitions were too high (too high)
    Waiting up for you upstairs
    Why you act like I'm not there?
    Baby, right now it feels like

    It feels like you don't care (you don't care)
    Why don't you recognize I'm so rare? (So rare)
    I'm always there
    You don't do the same for me
    That's (that's)
    Not (not)
    Fair

    I don't have it all (I don't have it all)
    I'm not claiming to (I'm not claiming to)
    I know that I'm special, yeah
    And I'll bet there's somebody else out there
    To tell me I'm rare, to make me feel rare
    Oh yeah

    So rare
