lyrics

You want me acting like you're just another woman
Don't want to live outside this moment
with the serious things I might say to you

So you're just another woman
I'm just another man
We're not the last two people or anything
You never called me lover
I never gave you cause
It's such a sad strange shame, this drama, so

I'm gonna tell you the truth
Honey and venom, I'm a conduit
I don't mean to be rude, but brave
Words hurt when they go unsaid, so
cover your ears, you'd rather not hear the few
serious things I might say to you

At least you know I mean them
You just pretend you're casual
like we are not both responsible
And I can barely touch you
cuz you shrink from grander plans
out of fear it'll get out of hand

So I have nothing to lose
Honey and venom, I'm a conduit
I don't mean to be rude, but babe
your affections only come when boozed
Hey, cover your ears
you'd rather not hear the few
serious things I might say to you

And it's true that if we cannot bear the weight
of our past relations
who's to say that we could ever bear enough
to love in spite of the pain we've caused
to love in spite of pain?

But you want me acting like you're just another woman
So you can thank yourself
when that's what I start doin, baby
I'm just another man
and we are both afraid
of the serious things I might say to you
