Lyrics

I felt insane on Lover's Lane
wanted a cry on my daily drive
to the Park of Roses
I opposed every petal picking nice guy in the grass
I felt absurd as a lovebird
wanted to die on my morning fly
to your apartment window
where I would show my muscle and my melody off
but no on likes a chatterbox

I cannot win
I cannot win
I cannot win affection
win affection

I started parting my hair like his, that's what i did
to subconsciously draw your attention
to the arbitrary aspect of attraction
and when at my teenage worst what i do
is think of all the people in the world that aren't you
oh there's plenty, I usually only count to twenty
less dog with tail between its legs
more like my guts are on display
food out on a tray but I can't eat it
doesn't that sound defeated

I cannot win
I cannot win
I cannot win affection
win affection
