You cried and you cried and you cried wolf
So it took me a minute to understand
That you really were hurt bad 
That day you deeply cut your hand
And then that look that you gave me
Sent me rushing through guilt's door
I'd already started to feel callous 
Like I really should care more

It was my work that kept me upright
So you called it a crutch
While I drifted off 
Into dreams of such and such
And by the time we'd come full circle 
We knew exactly what to do
Just keep looking at the triangle 
Instead of what it's pointing to

But you can't will yourself happy
You can't will your cunt wet
You can't keep standing at the station 
Pretending you're being met
You can't wear a sign that says 'yours'
When that ain't what you get

It flows and flows away from me
My love is a stream
Your love is a vaudeville show
So charming and obscene
We both had our moments
We both had our fun
And then I hated to prove 'em all right
All those who said I'd run

But you can't will yourself happy
You can't will your cunt wet
You can't keep standing at the station
Pretending you're being met
You can't keep wearing a sign that says 'yours'
When that ain't what you get
