Lyrics

She dropped my hand and said, "I will go no further"
I dropped my head and hid my tears with laughter
(You know that)
Life's never been a great mystery to me

It begins then crawls slowly to the end
And I've no problems if you wish to join my views
Just add your name to the list of superficial friends

It
(Funny how these things work)
All seemed like it was too good to be true
It
(funny now it's always your fault)

Was and soon it came time to play my dues
So came the day when she had, had enough
She kept home and I wasn't asked to stay
She said, "You don't have to blame yourself, you know"

But I wouldn't have it any other way
I wouldn't have it any other way

Don't feed the hand that bites you
Just learn to starve
Don't fight for change in your time
Just swallow your depression
And say you're happy that it's rotten out today

And who wouldn't have it any other way
No, you wouldn't have it any other way

She left me alone, claiming
We'd run out of things to fight about
I was crushed of course but at least
I've something I can write about

I guess I'm just some kind of malcontent
Who gets paid for having nothing good to say
And even though it doesn't pay the rent

You know I wouldn't have it any other way
I wouldn't have it any other way
I wouldn't have it any other way
I wouldn't have it any other way
I wouldn't have it any other way
