Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

If I think about it, I am successful, as it were—
I get to sing for lovely people all over this lovely world.
And I am nowhere near as awkward as I was when I was younger.
I guess I'm one of those guys who gets better-looking as they age.
And even though I half am beaten down by constant doubt, depression,
And confusion brought about by people's actions, death and tax forms,
I keep getting up and I am loved by all my friends and family,
Though there have been lots of raised eyebrows, concerned glances neatly.
It doesn't matter to him.
I could be anything, but I could never win his heart again.
It doesn't matter to him.
He took away my triple-A pass; I am invisible to him.
And now I feel the soft pink flesh of my heart hardening
To the countless possiblities contained within each day.
Vulnerability feels like a cold, wet concrete room
Lit with fluorescent lighting,
Which, as you know, makes anything look bad.
I still keep trying to figure out how I became irrelevant,
How I got myself evicted from his heart from one day to the next,
And the worst part is that even if I got an answer right now,
It would not change anything, because we have become two strangers.
It doesn't matter to him.
I could be anything, but I could never win his heart again.
It doesn't matter to him.
He took away my triple-A pass; I am invisible to him.
It doesn't matter to him.
I could be anything, but I could never win his heart again.
It doesn't matter to him.
He took away my triple-A pass; I am invisible to him.
