lyrics

we went to have a picnic
you stuffed me in a lunchbox
I offered you a house key
you snapped me with a padlock
I asked you from the corner
“can we be more friendly?”
you came at me with a broomstick
it’s important to be cleanly

I’ve never been breezy
so why would this be easy?
the simple thing is nothing
I want a complicated something

we’re driving out to dinner
but we’re keeping it a secret
wouldn’t want nobody talking
a celebrity’s a target
so would you like some wine, dear?
it’s perfect with your entree
thought we were a pleasant pairing
but you wanna ala carte me

I’ve never been breezy
so why would this be easy?
the simple thing is nothing
I want a complicated something

you were at least a friend
but you show me how I’m wrong
so quick to threaten ends
your silences too long
you never gave me any weight
a shrug and then you’re done
hope you had some fun

I’ve never been breezy
so why would this be easy?
the simple thing is nothing
I want a complicated something
