lyrics

Consider a success: Another night's party
I was hooking up with one who wasn't right
I wrote it in my diary:
"Shared a strange bed for an awkward night."
Hoping for the best but no, not quite

My notions of the world are not very nuanced
Tend to rate encounters either win or lose
And lately mostly the latter
Avoid a situation if I have to choose
Follow fear of failure to the bitter blues

I was so uptight that I left all the work to you
Down at a dance where we could move
On a long hot night that might be all that we would do
Now we just pray that it improves

I had no desire to be like the others
Still I always thought I'd end up just the same
Vague plan to turn out normal
Marry, reproduce, carry on a name
Assuming that my life would be a simple thing

I go on alone, abandon the burden
Can't compromise the way I thought I could
Who do I think I'm fooling?
Feelings and philosophy misunderstood
Suffering in silence for the greater good

I was so uptight that I left all the work to you
Down at a dance where we could move
On a long hot night that might be all that we would do
Now we just pray that it improves
