  • We made your made your overtures
    When you were show an orotund mutt
    And I was still a dew on petals
    Rather than a moribund slut
    My love wrecked you
    You packed to twirl your skirt at the palace
    It hurt more than it ought to hurt
    I went to work to cultivate a callus

    [Hook]
    And now I'm hard, too hard to know
    I don't cry when I'm sad anymore, no no
    Tears calcify in my [?]
    Fears go inside [?]

    How can I ask anyone to love me
    When all I do is beg to be left alone?

    Oh, when I try to love
    I can save the same man in the same bed in the same city
    But not in the same room, it's a pity, but
    Oh, it never bothered me before
    Not 'til this guy, what a guy, oh God what a good guy
    And I can't even enjoy him

    [Hook]

    How can I ask anyone to love me
    When all I do is beg to be left
    When all I do is beg to be left
    When all I do is beg to be left alone
    Alone, alone

    My ills are articulate
    My woes are granular
    The ants weigh more than the elephants
    Nothing, nothing is manageable
    So couldn't we validictories?
    I could see you enjoy that
    Shut it and forget my number

    [Hook]

    How can I ask anyone to love me
    When all I do is beg to be left
    When all I do is beg to be left
    When all I do is beg to be left alone
