lyrics

These dreams of you Are so much sweeter than the truth So much stronger than the proof So much greener than your blue These dreams of you Are so much sweeter than the truth So much stronger than the proof So much neater than your room You live and you learn Oh only after pain and disaster And you never return from the war And so there was you A gift still in the wrapping A saint in Manhattan A train wreck waiting to happen We started a thing But I should have known better Right down to the letter All the signs were pointing down Now I itch and I scratch From your goddamn cats You say, "They never bothered Matt" He was the ex. He loved the cats. And your sister's been here since late last year I guess she's never gonna take the hint And your mother don't care for the length of my hair But she ain't the one wearing it Now I'm caught in a trap And I can't hold back But it ain't cuz I love you too much, baby And that might be stealing But I'll just call it lazy Cuz you ain't worth the rhyme Or proper grammar
