i am a car on a patch of grass
i am a hair on a hairless cat
i am the sky that invented blue
i am a love who isn't you

"i see your beauty in other" men
we'll never know just what it meant
i see your beauty in other men
and i try not to dream of them

i feel so bad
i never felt this bad

tour is scary and its hard to stay strong
it might help if i could call you on the phone
and hear a friends voice that isnt my own
being surrounded is like being alone
and there i was on the window sill
outside your room in pleasantville
with your shirt on as a nightgown
looking for a way outta that town

and all i have is you
and you are of no use

i learned how to love from you
to carefully follow from the room
too tired of being strewn along
bored from being done all wrong
you showed me how to make a sound
you taught me that the earth was round
but that i'm round too, can bounce at any time
i bounced from being yours to being mine

and now i'm strong, now i'm strong
thanks for doing me so wrong
