  • I'm so tall, can't get over me
    I'm so low, can't get underneath
    I must be all these things
    For I just threw out the love of my dreams

    He is in my eyes, he is in my ears
    He is in my blood, he is in my tears
    I breathe love and see him every day
    Even though my love is a world away

    Oh, he's got me wondering
    My righteousness is crumbling

    Never before have I felt this way
    I know what is right, but want for him to stay
    I must be made of steel
    For I just threw out the love of my dreams

    He's in my eyes, he is in my ears
    He's in my blood, he is in my tears
    I breathe love and see him every day
    Even though my love is a world away

    Oh, he's got me wondering
    My righteousness is crumbling

    Oh, he's got me wondering
    My righteousness is crumbling
    And I see him every day
    Even though my love's a world away

    He's in my eyes, he is in my ears
    He's in my blood, he is in my tears
    I must be made of steel
    For I just threw out the love of my dreams Writer/s: Rivers Cuomo
