If it's not the best I'll have then
I am no longer interested
And I would never have to go through shit
like writing another song to someone who doesn't deserve it

And I'd tell you what I want
And you'd give me what I need
And we'd never have to fight
because it would be agreed
That you're the best I've ever had
That I would give myself to you
And you'd always wanna be with me
and I'd wanna be there too

It was two thousand thirteen
and the cardinals were convening
when you invited me into the woods
and it couldn't have been for anything good

But if you had been that elusive girl
upon whom I base my whole inner world

Then I wouldn't have to make up languages
with tenses for addressing unborn kids

And I wouldn't be so fucked up

'Cause I could finally believe
That I would never ever again
be consumed by this weird greed

Because it grabs me by the shoulders
and it rattles me inside
and your smile comes back to me
with the resurgence of a tide

It's a game I'll never win
It's a game I'll never lose
Because no matter what I see in her
It'll never look like you
