she comes from a fake butter family in larchmont
i was glad to be in a place where things went missing easily
i bet she's in a restaurant under the heat lamp she had moved
she hates the sound of time passing

she never reads the articles, just headlines and she tells me all the things
that i told her yesterday and suddenly it's different because
now she agrees with me
she's always drowning in the water that she doesn't drink
she wears headphones to go to sleep

but she's not crazy unless her mother tells her that she's crazy

she takes pills for all the things that aren't wrong with her
just to play on her strengths
she puts herself in other people's shoes and she gets blisters
she will fill a silence quickly and completely
she just wants you to always be happy

but she's not crazy unless her mother tells her that she's crazy
she plays the same three chords faithfully
and at the same time longs for more variety
but it's better than being alone
better than being a bore
better to do what you think you must love than be happy
she deserves real answers and clarity
which incidentally is exactly what she gets
she just loves to misinterpret it
cuz she's so scared of being along
so scared of being a bore
too scared of doing the things that she loves to be happy
