This would not have happened
If I hadn't missed my plane
I've would have been there when they told you
Im the Rat within the grain

Within this big misunderstanding now
Im being misunderstood
I think'in someones trying to fuck with me
And set fire to my wood

I wouldn't want you to want
To be wanted by me
I wouldn't want you to worry
You'd be drowned within my sea
I only wanted to be wonderful
And wonderful is true
In truth I only really wanted
To be wanted by you

Its a stupid situation now
Where everything goes wrong
If you can't tell if I am lying
Then you do not belong

In my bed
Go rest your head
Upon the bones of a bigger man
He can cover you with rock wool
And you can close up like a clam

I wouldn't want you to want
To be wanted by me
I wouldn't want you to worry
You'd be drowned within my sea

I only wanted to be wonderful
And wonderful is true
In truth I only really wanted
To be wanted by you

So go play with your piano
Write a mediocre song
Out the shell of mediocrity
And pretend theres nothing wrong

I never thought you where a chicken shit
I never thought of you at all
Until you asked me to be part of it
Now you're showing me your wall

I wouldn't want you to want
To be wanted by me
I wouldn't want you to worry
You'd be drowned within my sea

I only wanted to be wonderful
And wonderful is true
In truth I only really wanted
To be wanted by you

La la la la

In truth I only really wanted
To be wanted by you
