I really care a lot
although I look like I do not
Since I was shot
there's nobody but you

I know I look blase 
Party Andy's what the papers say
At dinner I'm the one who pays
for a nobody like you

Nobody but you
a nobody like you
Since I got shot
there's nobody but you

Won't you decorate my house
I'll sit there quiet as a mouse
You know me I like to look a lot
at nobody but you

I'll hold your hand and slap my face
I'll tickle you to your disgrace
Won't you put me in my proper place
a nobody like you

Sundays I pray a lot
I'd like to wind you up and paint your clock
I want to be what I am not
for a nobody like you

The bullet split my spleen and lung
the doctors said I was gone
Inside I've got some shattered bone
for nobody but you

Nobody but you
a nobody like you
Shattered bone
for nobody but you

I'm still not sure I didn't die
and if I'm dreaming I still have bad pains inside
I know I'll never be a bride
to nobody like you

I wish I had a stronger chin
my skin was good, my nose was thin
This is no movie I'd ask to be in
with a nobody like you

Nobody like you
a nobody like you
All my life

It's been nobodies like you
