  • like a grade school valentine
    my heart is asking and aching all the time
    when are you gonna know?
    as near as time gets, you're moving awful slow
    so let’s talk about the way the world should be
    it's not fair, when i'm cast as Gatsby
    and i should have seen you coming like a speeding car
    but you know me perennial Cassandra

    if you wanna hurt me it's an unqualified success
    i don’t wanna hang around like a faded dress

    when i was young i thought
    that i'd remember everything that i'd been taught
    now it's clear i never learned anything
    cause i come up empty, when it comes to you dear
    so let’s talk about just how it's gonna be
    forget the love that once made her happy
    cause i got a sneaking feeling about you
    such as you’ve got other better things to do

    if you wanna hurt me it's an unqualified success
    i don’t wanna hang around like a faded dress
    on the way out
    on the way out

    if worry is the color of currency
    then i'll pay the will for this movie
    and i cant help but watch it again and again
    cause at the end when i rewind it you're right back with me

    like a grade school valentine
    my heart is asking and aching all the time
    and i got a sneaking feeling about you
    such as you’ve got other better things to do

    if you wanna hurt me it's an unqualified success
    i don’t wanna hang around like a faded dress
    i don’t wanna hang around like a faded dress
    i don’t wanna hang around like a faded dress
    on the way out
    on the way out
    on the way out
