Awry, Amiss, Amok


My favorite lyrics come when I exaggerate an emotional state. One time I asked a girl out and she blew me a raspberry. Actually, she was very kind, but for the sake of writing a good song, I pretended to be very angry. I like it.

You don't owe me anything;
You don't owe...
 anyone a thing.

But you think that I owe you
 a shoulder to cry on;
You seem to think that I will be
 someone for you to rely on;
There's one thing we better straighten out
 before we can carry on:

I don't owe you anything;
I don't owe...
 anyone a thing.

So you have no right
 to talk to me that way;
You can't excpect me to always know
 the right thing to say;
You shouldn't count on me
 to make your every day.

Coz when you said, "No"...
 to me.
You said no for the first time, and the last time, and for all time.

So everytime you're sitting
 with your head in your hands;
And everytime you're wishing
 for someone who understands;
And everytime you're feeling
 so terribly lonely,

I hope you think of me...
 with regret.
I hope you think of me
 sitting up here alone and smiling.

I'm alone and smiling.

Don't do which?

Get denied by girls? or write songs to deal with it? or share them?

I got a referral for someone searching for "'taking a shit' emoticon"

Sambo said...

Haha, did it track back to a scat forum or something?

Thrusting stormtrooper gif for the win.
