lyrics

I said I like you and that’s what I meant
That’s why I asked you for a cigarette
The way you said you didn’t smoke
I said neither do I

I only drink when I’m depressed
When I’m bored or having fun with friends
Marijuana, I don’t wanna if I have to pay a cent

Do you still like me now?
Am I no different than the rest?
Sadness is a just a gesture that my loneliness makes

You may be phony but I can’t tell
I’ll try to love you but I’ll probably fail
Think I’m crazy because I’m convinced everyone else knows how

But I can’t wait to see your face
In the pale light of the TV screen
I’m only shaking because it’s the only way my body can tell this is real

Do you still like me now?
Am I no different than the rest?
Sadness is a just a gesture that my loneliness makes

Are you still with me now?
Did you miss the point again?
Sadness raises the questions that we are afraid to make

Same story nothing new
I tried my best to not be mad at you
A lovers quarrel is nearly as hard as a friendship on the rocks

Do you still like me now?
Am I no different than the rest?
Sadness is a just a gesture that my loneliness makes

Are you still with me now?
Did you miss the point again?
Sadness raises the questions that we are afraid to make

Do you still like me now?
