Nobody but You Lyrics

by Lou Reed

I really care a lot
Although I look like I do not
Since I was shot
There's nobody but you

I know I look blase (note: blase - "e" with acute)
Party andy's what the papers say
At dinner I'm the one who pays
For a nobody like you

Nobody but you
A nobody like you
Since I got shot
There's nobody but you

Won't you decorate my house
I'll sit there quiet as a mouse
You know me I like to look a lot
At nobody but you

I'll hold your hand and slap my face
I'll tickle you to your disgrace
Won't you put me in my proper place
A nobody like you

Sundays I pray a lot
I'd like to wind you up and paint your clock
I want to be what I am not
For a nobody like you

The bullet split my spleen and lung
The doctors said I was gone
Inside I've got some shattered bone
For nobody but you

Nobody but you
A nobody like you
Shattered bone
For nobody but you

I'm still not sure I didn't die
And if I'm dreaming I still have bad pains inside
I know I'll never be a bride
To nobody like you

I wish I had a stronger chin
My skin was good, my nose was thin
This is no movie I'd ask to be in
With a nobody like you

Nobody like you
A nobody like you
All my life

It's been nobodies like you
