The first time I saw you I knew you'd be important
That's why I wasn't surprised when one week later
You were in my basement
Standing by the lamplight
I swore it looked like you were sacred
I syour hand,
said "My name is Karl,"
then pictured you naked.
and then we started talking almost every day
and I admit I thought about you in the worst possible ways
you reassured me that I had gold in my bones
and I didn't deserve to spend my whole life alone
you told me that I was really something
I guess that's better than nothing
but Alex I am a moron and we both know it's true
—I'll never do what I'm supposed to do
I got fucked up and I misread your signals
—you think i'm evil
so now you're gone and it's already through
but if I never would have said these things
or wrote these songs
would I have ever stood a chance with you?
I probably never should have said these things.
