You're the only one I wanna get screwed over by. [Jan. 23rd, 2007|12:55 am]
Lindsey Kuper

You're the only one for me.
I tell you three or four times a day.
When you're with me, I'm happy.
I'm lost and lonely when you're away.
Every night I have to spend without you,
my suffering grows ever more and more.
I wouldn't suffer like this for just anyone --
you're the only one I wanna suffer for.
You're the only one.

Now we've established something precious,
but chances are it could go awry
when we find out how weak the flesh is,
shattered, scattered, hung out to dry.
It'll all come out when it's discovered,
clearer than the teardrop in my eye,
but I don't wanna get screwed over by just anyone --
you're the only one I wanna get screwed over by.
You're the only one.

I think that if in my lifetime I could make one song as good as anything on Love is Dead, I'd be satisfied. Every one has an element of humor, an element of tragedy, some kind of ironic twist -- but they do all that and the balls-out plain-spoken honesty. That's what I aspire to, y'know? It really kills me when people think of them as a joke band.
