I know that I fill up on bread and appetizers.
I’m too optimistic for surprises.
Different vices, different shapes and sizes.
I figure out the plot before the movie starts.
I’ve seen this one before in several parts.
I hate to have to break two hearts today,
But it’s been such a long time without foreplay.

I never finish jigsaw puzzles,
Because I cry each time I have to take apart them.
They sit forever cause I never have the heart
And I can’t take it so I fake it
but my heart is finally breaking.

Into a thousand pieces on the floor and on the table.
I promise I will pick them up as soon as I am able.

I know I laugh at jokes before the joke is funny.
Spend it all before I have the money.
Upside down umbrella when it’s sunny,
For pennies from heaven.

I never finish all my songs after I start them.
They sit forever cause I never have the heart
And I know I can’t take rejection
So I hang on to affection
And I fake it till I make it
But my heart can hardly take it.

It shatters into pieces on the floor and my piano.
