Please leave me out of this
All I wanted was a kiss, don’t you believe me
When you go back and forth, could it be that
Your love is pure for sport though you seethe at
My buddies the highons, who follow the Lions
The trouble with cryin’ is that I’d be lyin’

All I ever wanted was a true love
Without feeling I would have to memorize the words to her favorite song
And it’s by me

Please lead me into bliss
All I want is to be missed, you’ve got to believe me
When you go back and forth could it be that
Your love is of a sort that I sneeze at
Listen to me, listen to me
I’m not gonna be what you want me to be

We live in idiot box
