about

Hmm... always thought this was one of my better-crafted songs lyrically. The chord progression is reminiscent of Roky Erickson's "You Don't Love Me Yet," a favorite of mine. I'm starting to envision this song as a male/female duet, maybe trading off lyrics, switching up lyrics.

lyrics

You and I

You and I both know why we don't love each other
We don't love anyone, we know what it means to suffer
We're just not the best we could be yet

You and I run and hide deep within our cages
Somewhere safe but all alone, we don't want to be unknown
We've gotten pretty close for being strangers

You and I want to find peace within our madness
I smile when I want to cry, you give up when you should keep trying
No one knows what to do with all of these tears

You and I both know why we don't love each other
You think you're a tortured soul, I simply don't care anymore
You're not misunderstood, you're just cruel
