Open the door and shaking off bad weather
Message light - red red black
Call me tonight: the warning from my mother
And then it's you.
I erase the two.

Clean off the stove - what to make for dinner?
Can't decide - I never could
Washing the plates until my brain picks a winner
And then I dry.

Look in your heart and be a friend 'cuz
I need a helping hand - lend me a couple grand
And if that's too much can you pretend 'cuz
I wouldn't understand - I wouldn't understand

Turn on the tube and catch the game in progress
End of 9 and still no score
Unable to turn my luck in some direction
Good or bad

And that's where I'm at - no thanks to you 'cuz
I never learned the law and I had a shitty draw
But how could you know I'm drowning here
I needed a helping hand to drag me back to land
So toss me away - don't waste your time 'cuz
I'll never understand - I'll never understand
I'll never understand
