what dating a psychopath feels like


1.I canʼt say nuthin to you - youʼre too cold
Iʼve tried to relate to you - youʼre too cold
I have many stories that canʼt be told
Youʼre from the suburbs and youʼll never know
how it is to be cold
2. You try to relate to me - Iʼm so bored
You tell me ʻbout the things that you know - Iʼm so bored
Hockey practice and doing homework with your dad
How you only just learned what it is to be sad.
Whoa boy - poor boy!
3. I try to allude to truth - your jaw drops
I stop my stories too soon - youʼre in shock
Constructinʼ these stories takes the good out of me
I was being honest, now youʼre ill at ease.
Thatʼs how it goes - youʼre displeased
4. And I think youʼre missing out - life is tough
Your songs are boring and stuff - I canʼt trust
You with all the rocks and my boat in the bay
Chopping firewood and the peat in the bogs,
hurray - Context sucks
5. And Iʼve got nothing to prove - itʼs alright
And Iʼve got nothing to lose - youʼre alright
Letʼs go back to your place, thatʼs good enough
Weʼve been talking too much and itʼs not up to snuff.
Itʼs alright - itʼs cold tonight
6. I canʼt say nuthinʼ to you - youʼre too cold
Iʼve tried to relate to you - youʼre too cold
I can keep my mouth shut while youʼre in the room
I can even accept that youʼll never make me swoon.
Itʼs alright - itʼs cold tonight
