No chance I could be her boyfriend
I'm trying to flip butch girls again
We could see what life pretends
And why don't I still call a friend?

She says, you know I love you, but I feel so one in ten.

And life is short and dull
Categorize to the full, until the charm is gone.
And you're a big girl, if you wanna get it on, you will
And if you don't, you won't

She says, you know I love you, but I feel so one in ten.

You could have such a life, with me
You could knit baby sweaters, 
We could watch the flat screen t.v.

She says, you know I love you, but I feel so one in ten.

What's the differences, when it goes down?
If it's a girl, or if it's guys?
Can't you just close your eyes?
Baby, close your eyes.
Baby, close your eyes.

Love doesn't come in perfect packages, that means I qualify.
And I know it's not your way, but I thought we could give it a try.

She says, you know I love you, but I feel so one in ten.
You know I love you, but I feel so one in ten.
You know I love you, she'll always be my one in ten.
