You Wanted Something

by Luke Morin Amateur

SONG LYRICS

I took your phone again.
It wouldn’t ring when I wanted to talk to you.
I thought if I could fix it, maybe you’d want to talk to me.
Maybe you’d open that message.
But, oh, I’m being stupid again.
Whisk away at the slightest implication.
You could give me a shaky hand.
Now’s the time to show your interest.

I know you wanted something in your head.
But babe, the game, it isn’t playing where I stand.
If love is just a memory you keep in bed,
Then babe, I guess you’re just not getting who I am.

See, I’ve been reading up on relationships.
Apparently, communication is vital to disrupt this dichotomy.
I went ahead and sold my pride to buy that one thing
That we talked about. Maybe we could’ve shared a common interest.
Will we ever know?
You never ask me questions. Maybe you’ve been doing
Research from my Facebook, but I try to keep that private.
Mutual interests. Crazy service. Lets me know what to say to you.
But society doesn’t accept this preemptive fact-finding.

Could you tell me how you want this to go?
I’m tired of guessing,
‘Cause I always end up losing
In this unrealistic MMO.

I know you wanted something in your head.
But babe, the game, it isn’t playing where I stand.
If love is just a memory you keep in bed,
Then babe, I guess you’re just not getting who I am.

I could be the light in your life.
I would tell you everything you want to hear.
But you disappear into accumulating figures,
Culminating to an abstract conflation of realities.
I could speak directly.
I would never bother you with me.
But who says it’s that easy?
Someone messed with the difficulty.

I know you wanted something in your head.
But babe, the game, it’s just not playing where I stand.
If love is just a memory you keep in bed,
Then babe, I guess you’re just not getting who I am.
