lyrics

I am a bum.
...or maybe an artist.
...or maybe a yuppie, depending on how you look at it...

and how you know me.
Don't I know you?
You're the barista in my favorite bar... café.

And I'm nothing I wanna be,
and I'm nothing you're gonna want from me,
and I'm nothing that I'm supposed to be
...so, come on

I couldn't stop.
I had to say it:
"Do you like cream in your coffee? cos I don't."

And you couldn't see,
but I would believe it
if you had told me your hair was always blond like that.

And I'm nothing I wanna be,
and I'm nothing you're gonna want from me,
and I'm nothing that I'm supposed to be,
and isn't that fair,
and isn't that great,
and isn't that terribly self-aware?
And isn't that great,
and isn't that fair,
and isn't that terribly self-aware?
I'm terribly self-aware. (self-aware, i'm terribly self-aware......self...aware...)

...But listen, I really mean it.
But listen, I really mean it...

a ready impulse is waiting.
