lyrics

This is a song
that I wrote
It didn't take long
no joke

this is a song
built on words and a melody
it's sharp and keen and it doesn't mean a thing
if you like it or you don't like me

cuz I'm not your man
no I am surely not your guy
to repeat what you said I'm sure we're not friends
so let's give up and not talk and live with the lie

Trace an image and give it to me in place of proof
That the real thing belongs to some other couple of kids
who found the truth
The ghost of us follows us into our hardest days
and straight on through
that phantom pain has stained you too

This is a song
it ain't something to cry about
it's all that i've got I just wanna belong
but now I'm screamin it's a joke, it's a joke

it's only a song
fueled by supressed sentiment
it's sharp and keen and shines like a dream
who knew the blade in my back still had a sheen

I am not your man
I am not your punching bag
Nevermind the machine-like history you've seen of me
I'm the most human thing you'll ever have had

Trace an image and give it to me in place of proof
That the real thing belongs to some other couple of kids
who found the truth
The ghost of us follows us into our hardest days
and straight on through
that phantom pain has stained you too

I am not your god
I am not your therapist
don't listen to me if you've got better places to be
I just wanted to sing you a song
