...I wish I liked you
Enough to be my friend
I wish you liked me
Enough to be my friend
I think of you and shudder
When we meet I just pretend

You'd a be a lovely person
If you were someone else
You'd be a lovely person
If you were someone else
You're uncomfortable to be with
You don't even like yourself

You want to be offended
You're arrogant and vain
The only thing that cheers you up 15
Is someone else's pain
And you moralise
Yeah you moralise

You make me feel guilty
As if I owed you one
I'm always trying to appease you
As if I owed you one
Well I'm gonna have to work on that
I owe you nothing
Nothing at all

Cause if you've done me any favors
They were double-edged and cold
You didn't d othem out of love
You just wanted to get some kind of hold

I've got your number
But I never call you back
I've got your number
But I never call you back
You've got some thick-skinned friends
Maybe they'll call you back

Your eyes glaze over
Every time somebody that's not you speaks
Your eyes glaze over
Every time somebody else speaks
Upstairs soemthing howls
Outside something shrieks

I wish I liked you
Enough to be my friend
I wishI liked you
Enough to be your friend
I think of you and shudder
I hope we never meet agai
