That's a good question, why am I standing out here alone?
I guess I don't know enough to come in from the rain
I was watching your window from here below
I think I just might stay here all day 'cause I gotta do something

'Cause if I can't love you, I don't want to love you
If I can't hold you, I don't want to be thinking of you
And if you don't want me, I don't want to want you
And if you won't see me, I don't know what to do

But oh, keep watching you
Oh, I keep watching you
Until I see right through
Oh, I keep watching you

You could throw me down a cigarette
I smoked my last one quite a while ago
No, I gave it to the man that swore he had no need
And you know sometimes if I listen real close
I can hear the dark side of the moon
And there's always yesterday's times
If I care to read and I gotta do something

'Cause if I can't love you, I don't want to love you
If I can't hold you, I don't want to be thinking of you
And if you don't want me, I don't want to want you
And if you won't see me, I don't know what to do

But oh, keep watching you
Oh, I keep watching you
Until I see right through
Oh, I keep watching you

Sure, I'm alright, no I'm not very cold
You see, every now and then I can feel the subway heat
So go on inside, I'll leave you alone
Anyway Bogart's on in the window down the street
And I gotta do something

'Cause if I can't love you, I don't want to love you
If I can't hold you, I don't want to be thinking of you
And if you don't want me, I don't want to want you
And if you won't see me, I don't know what to do

But oh, keep watching you
Oh, I keep watching you
Until I see right through
Oh, I keep watching you
I keep watching you, you, you
